Movement quest.

So my dr mentioned 6kicks in an hour, 2x a day. Baby has been really quiet today - I've been busy yesterday and this morning, when I realized I hadn't really felt her- I drank some juice and layed on my left side and I did get more then 6 kicks in like 20 mins....but she's not moving as much as she normally does...quiet day or should I be a little worried?

My doc said I should only worry if the baby doesn't move as much (or at all) after eating something or drinking something. If you get movement after eating/drinking then things are ok and the baby is just having a slow day.

If you notice a lack of movement tomorrow again, then I'd call the doc just to be sure.

I second what Roxi said. It depends on how your uteris is and how the baby is. All my other pregnancies I had LAZY babies or had it where I couldnt feel most of the movement. So this is the one that I can feel every little thing so its very weird for me. You could also be trying to find the baby when they are sleeping so they are not active then. Try a couple different times and if nothing or its less than it should be then Id talk to your dr.

I agree with the others. Keep in mind that as baby gets bigger movement will start to slow some.

I agree with PP. When baby gets more and more cramped it may be more difficult to feel him/her.

Thanks - as soon as i typed this, she started to move around much more......she's still more quiet then she normally is, but she's def. moving around enough that i'm aware she's in there.....maybe she's going through a little growth spurt and is tired...... this time around my placenta is in front, and i have to think that might prevent me from feeling some movement.... i know with DD1, i felt her move all the time and saw it all the time...lol...

I have heard that an anterior pkacenta will mask a fair amount of the movement.

Glad to hear she stepped it up a little to reassure you Biggrin

While I've been sick I've noticed that baby isn't moving as much. So I understand your concern. I too am just making sure he's moving "enough". Glad she wiggled some more for ya!
