So I text my midwife today. I really hate being a bother, but I had not felt the baby move in 3 days. After daily movement I was getting quite worried. Then I woke up yesterday with excruiating back pain. Ok when I sit but when I get up I look about 90 and feel it. Anyway she said she would pop round. Checked my bp and urine, bp was a touch high but nothing major. Found the babies heart rate straight off the bat it was 155bpm. Such a relief. She says the back pain is from doing too much, well we are going away on Monday then moving shortly after we get back plus I have two other kids and a job, go figure I am doing too much lol
Basically told me to sit and rest, relax and order other people about. Not sure how easy it will be to do that whilst checking out Venice, Verona and Milan amongst other places lol
Anyway basically this baby had me worried but all is well
Glad to hear all is well... and I agree, rest as much as possible, I'm being told the same as well, with three kids and a house/business I'm also finding it hard!!
Well I dont feel sorry for you about Venice and Milan but having a backache stinks, especially with a growing belly. I hope you can slow down a bit after your move. Glad baby is doing well!

I'm glad to hear your baby is doing well. Take it easy on vacation - use your midwife's recommendations as an excuse to sit at a cafe and drink tea and eat mini desserts mid-day
