Stop scaring me baby!


I hate it when my bub has slow days. Some days I really have to stop and lie down to feel him move. I always end up using my doppler for reassurance. He's having one of those days today. 😞 It's so hard to feel him move, especially that the skin on top of my belly is numb.

Is it normal for him to have slow days and busy days?

Do you have anterior placenta by any chance? With my first child, I had posterior and I could feel her a lot more! With this one, I have anterior and the movements aren't always as noticeable.

Agreed. I have an anterior placenta and it makes a difference!

But I think it's also normal to have slow days. My LO had one yesterday and then I had to remind myself that I tossed and turned all night the previous night and kept her awake too. She was active that night.... no wonder she wasn't too active yesterday during the day!!! But I think it's normal overall.

No I don't have an anterior placenta, I had one last time though. Well this morning he's moving a lot lol Maybe its because I had a good night sleep?

All of my babies, regardless of placental positioning, had their quiet days. In the last couple of months of pregnancy, it's very noticeable since we're used to feeling them all the time, and then they'll have a quiet day and scare us. Doing kick counts will REALLY help. I usually got 10 kicks within 15 minutes when I'm laying on my left side and am REALLY paying attention. The trick is to be quiet and calm with NO distractions.

I really hated the slower days. So hard not to worry. I think i could've practically lived in l&d lol

Definitely do kick counts and if you're worried or not sure if you should get checked, please call your health care provider and see if you should be checked out.

Glad baby was moving more this morning

Please don't ever rely on a Doppler to check on baby's wellbeing. A Doppler is not an indication as to how baby is doing, nor are hiccups etc. You should do kick count if you are concerned and if that doesn't seem ok then go in to get checked xx
