This morning I was getting a little bit worried. The babe usually wakes me up every morning at 5:30 and is SUPER active for about an hour and then I fall back asleep for 30-45 min. After waking, I eat and baby is pretty active all morning. Today, I woke at 5:30 (like every day) and went to pee, but I came back to bed and NO movement. I was awake and waiting for my crazy, flippy baby to wake up and nothing... From 5:30-6:30 I felt 2 movements that were more like pressure than a kick or punch or rolling (nothing like normal).
I have no idea what my midwife's protocol on movement is, so I looked online and there is no consensus there. Her office doesn't open until 8, so I decided to keep counting until then. From 6:30-7:30 I felt 4 "kicks" and then from 7:30 to 8 the baby's movement seemed back to normal, so I didn't call.
So, was babe just sleeping in? Could I have slept through the big movements this morning (not likely since I was up at 4:30 and 5 to pee). When a baby's pattern of movement has been so regular, what would make it change? Should I have called? I am still a little freaked out...
