Im just sitting here and ive just realised that LO hasnt moved once today since I woke up. Which isnt really normal. It is generally quieter during the day and then kicks off at night, but theres been nothing at all today. Iv only got a week left til my due date, is this normal??
Im gonna go and have a brisk walk and see if that does anything. But anyone had any thing like this at this stage or even in prev pregnancies?
Any advice would be great, as Im a tad worried. Been thru an awful lot of stress tihs week and just hoping its not taking its toll on my LO.
Yeah a bath and lying down flat on your back. I used to push our little girl at the sides a little bit. ha i know that sounds awful but it worked, not to hurt yourself just the way the midwife does when theyr checkin your tum.
I know they say babies movements are in patterns but i dont know that that's always true. It might be that baby has moved into your pelvis now so you cant feel the movements as much.
You get so used to their movements that you forget to monitor them and then you think oh god they havent moved when they have you've just got used to what it feels like, don't worry about it. It's normal. If you're really worried ring the delivery suite, they put a heart monitor on your tum n you can hear that gorgeous heartbeat :-) xxx
babies do go quiet in the last few days leading up to labour.. but you should still get your 10 movements. Don't delay in phoning labour ward if you're concerned. Try an ice cold can of pop and lay down. If LO hasn't moved within half an hour then contact mw. Better to be safe than sorry. xxxxxx
My LO always tends to move when im lying flat on my back very relaxed or when i am drinking something cold, try ice cream! I agree with the others though, if you try all of these things & nothing happens, phone your midwife & get some advice try not to worry though maybe LO is just catching alot of sleep today! xx

My LO always responds to a hot cuppa tea. I had a scare like this recently but i kept telling myself i never feel much during the day anyway and that maybe i missed it, so i ended up having a hot cuppa tea and a snack and it ended up working. Good thing too because that was 11pm and if it hadnt worked, the next step was phoning maternity ward. Come to think of it, i am not sure i have felt him yet today, but it isnt really his time to come out and play yet (plus i get up late)
