Less movement?

Ok so I had noticed that the girls had been quiet since the weekend, but baby A has since perked up and B has still been quiet. I had an appt yesterday and figured I was being silly and once I heard the heartbeating I would be fine and it would calm my fears. So the appt went well and we did hear both hearts beating away, but B's seemed faster to me then normal, but I was just relieved to hear it and I knew all was ok. Well that lasted a couple hours and then I realized again that I really am not feeling her like normal. I think I have felt a tap here and there. I even drank and extra cup of coffee this AM hoping to wake her up. Well A is having a party in there, but B is still quiet. I'm only 25 wks and not doing kick counts or anything, but IDK should I call my OB or just wait it out? I have to going into my work ofc in an hour, but if I dont feel her kick soon I think I am going to call them. I hate feeling like a worrywart or paranoid! 1 is enough to stress about 2 is going to drive me batty!

I think it can be the direction they are turned.

For me I can feel baby B move all the time but I hardly ever feel baby A.

I worried about it for a little bit but the dr's reassured me everything was OK and I am being monitored closely.

Definitely keep an eye on it but I agree. With Jennie. Baby B was my party animal while baby A was more mellow. Funny thing...they are still that way today!

I'm the same, Baby A is constantly moving and B is a little more mellow. I sometimes think the only reason B moves is get away from A! If you're doctor isn't concerned than don't worry about. But I completely understand where you are coming from, I worry so much more this pregnancy than I ever did with my daughter.

Thanks for the info ladies its good to know I am not alone! Baby A is definately my active baby and not so much, but this is even less then normal. I think I am going to wait until tomorrow and see if I can try some tricks to get her moving and if not I will call my OB. I guess I should have said something yesterday...oh well.

Yes, A was my mover too, and still is. Smile But, if it is worrying you, I would call. Smile

I understand how you feel. My B doesn't move nearly as much as my A and C, but the u/s shows he's really moving all the time. I think he's moving into them causing them to move into me.

Glad to hear a few of you are having the same worries! Baby A seems like she is up all day
ight kicking away. (they are really low and it feels like she is going to push her way on out when it comes to the harder kicks!) Baby B is the calm one. I barely feel her move (compared to A) and it worries me. Just when I'm about to give the doc a call she makes the slighest movement to let me know she is there. I never worried during my singleton pregnancy, and now I worry everyday. I will be glad when I can finally meet them face to face.

I could not have said it better myself.

For me Baby A was ALWAYS moving. Baby B would just flip here and there and seemed so mellow. Baby A was always in my pelvic area and would kill me!!! Funny thing is like some others have said...it is the same now that they are here. Baby A is CONSTANTLY doing something and does not need sleep lol....Baby B is very laid back and wants to sit up under me ALL the time Wink

But if you are worried, call the doc to ease your mind. Huge hugs!
