    Default Would you consider this decreased movement?

    Hey ladies
    So not sure if I should be concerned. If this were the first time I probably totally would be. I'm not so sure.

    Anyways, baby has been less active, and those movements I feel are much less forceful, but if I have a drink and lie down for an hour, I get the minimum of 10 movements, often tons more. I just dont feel them as often when watching tv or sitting quietly like i used to. And the baby is usually crazy active at night when I wake, but last night I barely felt anything. Baby is moving again this morning though, just not as often once again.

    Would you get checked out? If I call triage they will just tell me to come in, they dont really give advice over the phone.

    Ugh, I'm sorry....I spent a LOT of time freaking out and obsessing over movement during my entire pregnancy. In my experience, DD definitely went through phases where she moved more and moved less. Honestly I think those rules like moving ten times are there to help us not freak out and if baby is well within those limits it's probably fine. But peace of mind is important and if an extra check would help you feel better, well, that's part of the doctor's job and you should not feel bad for a minute if you want a second opinion. But my opinion is that given what you've described, it's probably fine.

    I agree with Leigh. Baby is getting bigger, with less room to move. It might also be a phase where (s)he is awake and moving at different times. I also think it's probably fine, but you do what you need to do to ease your mind.

    When is your next appt? I would definitely mention it then. But I think you may be within the realm of normal just based on my experience this pregnancy.

    I simply do not notice this baby half of the time. I know she moves, but she can seriously flip from head down to breech and I just don't notice. Even now at almost 35 weeks!!! She was head down and putting tons of downward pressure on me last week for a couple of days. I have no doubt she's been transverse the past couple of days and this morning I was wondering if she was breech again. I never notice what should be very major movements to be doing these things at this point! I know part of it is having another kid to chase and more to worry about and do. She also just moves differently than Aiden did and does position herself differently (kicking inward instead of out). I noticed him A TON (and he always faced out even during labor). Zoe? Unless I lay down and concentrate I could tell you at the end of most days that I do not remember feeling her. She is also totally active at night when I'm zonked out (hypnobabies tracks have done wonders for my sleeping this time) and I think that's when she does her major moving and changing of positions.

    Thanks for the replies ladies. I called our triage and explained what was going on and the nurse said "hmmmm, well if you're worried at all you should come in." LOL! So I guess I'm going in! I'll feel better anyways and normally it doesnt take long. At least my parents are visiting right now so they can watch Simon and we can go alone. And they are making a turkey!

    I bet as soon as they hook me up to the monitor this baby will go crazy. I went in with Simon one time (but had felt no movement versus reduced) and he went nuts as soon as they hooke me up. Its like they know!!!

    I hate going in but I know it will make me feel better. Another forum I look at just had a lady who's LO diet at 31 weeks and she had a few days of decreased movement though the NSTs came back normal. So that makes me paranoid too!! I just hope this baby goes back to it's crazy self soon! LOL!! These are times when I wish I had a doppler but I'd probably be attached to the thing 24/7.
