9 Weeks Pregnant
I'm nine weeks pregnant and im not feeling any movements about a week ago I was feeling something. Does that mean somethings wrong?
Not: Not to worry. If you are pregnant for this first you are likely to start feeling the baby moving around 18 to 20 weeks. A woman who has had babies before may feel it as early as 15 to 17 weeks. Feeling the baby kick might feel like a little fluttering sensation. The first time you feel the baby kick is called quickening. You probably had gas moving through your GI or tract something else. The baby's movements can't be felt by the mother at 9 weeks. Congratulations on your pregnancy. ...Read more

In this situation: Your baby will be best helped if you have no more alcohol until after the delivery. There is little to do to change the past. There is also no guarantee that there has not been harm. But, healing is real and brain development will be ongoing as the baby grows inside of you. Now is the time to take your prenatal vitamins, to eat well; and to be in fellowship with expectant mothers not drinking. ...Read more

Mono/mono not likely: Only 1% of all twins or 1/10, 000 pegnancies are monoamniotic - so it is much more likely that you have monochorionic diamniotic twins instead.
