Worried- UPDATED!

Everything is ok and I feel much better about it! He started moving around yesterday but alot less active then before. I went in for my 30 week appt this morning and they put me on the monitors. He moved alittle bit and his heartbeat was steady. They reassured me and didn't make me feel bad for worrying about it. I'm sure it happens all the time. Of course my OB had to tell me she will be gone in Sept.on vacation, as long as I don't deliver early Sept. she should be able to be there.

Baby is not moving! I know I just read a post about this somewhere and everything was ok, but I can't help but worry. This LO has been so active since I have started feeling movement at 20 weeks. I'd say i feel pretty consistent movement all day and even when i'm busy and doing things I feel him. Then, all the sudden it has just stopped. This has been going on since last night. Usually he wakes me up at night rolling around and kicking. I used my doppler and his heartbeat was about 130. I have been resting and drinking water all day but still nothing. I'm not sure if I should wait until m 30 week appt on tuesday to see what's going on or if I should try to be seen sooner. Or maybe this is normal? I don't like to worry like this though and I have been super stressed lately too. At a loss of what to do. Sad

If you are worried, I would give the Dr a call. Then your Dr can tell you what they would prefer you to do. It isn't worth being stressed out about. Don't forget that your LO is starting to run out of room in there though. KUP! BTW, there is no normal. DD only moved maybe twice a day, if I was lucky. That was her normal.

I feel for you! There are days where I start worrying too because I realize I hadn't felt Sophia all day. I would call your doctor to see what they say. They may want you to just go ahead and go into L&D to monitor him at the least. Better to be safe! KUP!

If you're worried, I'd call the doctor. The one time I hadn't felt my LO move in a long time, I drank some OJ, and then he went crazy o.o

I tried everything to get him to move, cold drink, caffine..poking my stomach, laying on my side. He just isnt budging. I know he is getting big and there isn't much room, but I thought I would at least feel one kick. If I dont feel anything tonight. I will call in the morning. At least if the doctor says It's ok I will feel better.

I'd call the doc. They might get you in tomorrow for a sneak peek. Everything's probably fine they're getting to the point where movement starts to slow down, so *try* not to worry too much.

I agree with pp, I would call and just let them know.

I Agree...

If you are worried about it, then definitely see the doctor. My little guy goes through periods of rest and movement. I think they coincide with growth cycles. For a day or two, he feels like a little alien pushing around and squirming. But then he will be really sleepy, and he will only move slightly one to three times a day for a day or two.

So glad everything is ok. DS wasn't moving as much at 30 weeks and they put me on the monitors too, but he started moving as soon as I was hooked up to them. LOL! Glad you had them check it out.
