Wondering about fetal movements..

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Some days little baby is super active and some days it's just not...like today! That always worries me... and sometimes I think why is it not kicking stronger?? Am I paranoid? When do you have reason to call your doctor or midwife? The whole issue of stillbirth scares me.... and I don't know this time around I feel worried about that...

I did this yesterday, because I'd felt decreased movement in the past couple of days.  I googled when kick count begins, etc, and by the time I was done reading and went to bed, the baby was moving a little.  Today and tonight, baby is a little crazy.  Btw, it's 28 weeks.  If you need peace of mind, call your dr/midwife.  That's what they are there for.  But It seems common for slow, quiet days at this stage.

Some days, depending on MY activity level, this LO is pretty quiet. Busier I am, quieter Baby gets. If I get worried, my babies seem to hate it when I sit on a chair and lean over onto my belly. DS did, so does this one. Or I lay on my tummy (if I can!). Then the wiggling starts and I sigh in relief and give LO a little more space. orngbiggrin.gif

Yeah I can aggravate mine too by leaning forward in a sit position, or by laying on my stomach or mostly on my stomach. It hates all that.
