first time pregnant...unsure of normal feelings.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi ladies. Just looking for some info on the feelings I'm having. Not sure if they are normal. I'm 28 wks 1 day with my first. I work 9 hours a day in retail on my feet all day, the last couple days I can barely make it through my shift I'm so uncomfortable by the end. I've been having round ligament pain off and on but it'll normally go away right away if I sit for a bit. Last night it took about an hour of laying down to go away.also at the end of my shift last night my cervix is very sore feeling kinda like you'd feel during a heavy period. Since last night its worn off and isnt as bad but still a little achy! Is all this normal? ? Suggestions? I go to my Dr Monday and ill talk to her....I'm just new to all these feelings. Also baby always has what feels like a dance Party starting bout 10p last night he didn't move until 11 ish and I only felt him a few times and I'm used to feeling him for least an hour. That ok?

Thanks! !

Hi longing4bb

 

The tired and achy is definitely normal, especially being on your feet that long at 28 weeks.  As far as movement, my midwives have me doing daily kick counts starting at 28 weeks (which I have just reached).  Their instructions were to pick a time when the baby is usually active, lay down and count how long it takes you to feel 10 movements.  They said you should be able to feel 10 within 1 hour.  If the baby is not moving after a few minutes, you can drink some juice and try again (I think it takes about 20 minutes for the baby to react to food).  They sleep  fairly regularly for 20-45 minutes, so I usually start counting when mine starts moving.  If your baby has slacked off on movement really noticeably and you can't get him to react, I would call the doc.
