Since 3pm I've been having major contrx. For an hour I was down hypercontracting...like one solid horrible one. They are now 3min apart consistent.<br><br>
But I have only felt her move once or twice in hours. Is it normal for them to be so still??? We are ready to head in to get her checked. I'm freaked.

Have you tried juice and laying down? Maybe giving her a little nudge? If you're really that concerned, you should go in & be checked, just for peace of mind.

I would go in and get checked. I know this LO can be quite still for hours and I get myself in a panic.<br><br>
Sorry I can't be any more helpful but please let us know how you are. It sounds like your LO will be here soon! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

With my sons they were all very still once labor really kicked in.<br><br>
My dd was still for the whole day before I went into labor..<br><br>
If you are super worried I would get checked out because I am sure the stress of that panic will not ease labor.. but I think your ok.<br><br>
ELV being sent your way!

Wyatt was very still after I started labor--very worrying for sure. I am hoping that you have gone in to get checked though for peace of mind. Please update us as soon as you can, ok? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

Zoey was still during my labor, I think all my babies got that way. I know I asked the midwife to check on Zoey with her doppler when she got to the house as baby had not moved in a while and I got worried.

I never once felt ds move while in labor. I'm not sure if it was because he really didn't move or because I was too focused on labor and not on him. With dd2 I only felt her move twice and it was while in active labor and I only felt it because it hurt. She was probably moving down. Buy I agree if you are worried get it checked out.

Go to hosp at 11:20pm, contrax 2 min apart and at 7cm. Then contrx slowly faded!! It's now 5:20am and just barely over 7cm. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I gotta say though...nurse and Dr rock. No pressure. Offered to break water anytime, but said otherwise just rest and there is no hurry. Baby great, I'm great.
