Another movement question!
What is your LO's pattern of movement? My LO moves more than 10 times per day, and I think there is a sort of pattern but these days it is more rolly movements and sticking his bum out or wiggling rather than kicks. Is this normal? I just keep worrying and worry that the movements are not as they should be. The midwife was not much help when I asked, but I am feeling movements so wouldn't want to bother the hospital....
I can feels squirming and bits being pushed out all day but hardly ever get kicks. As long as you get regular movements and don't get a sudden change in the pattern then it's okay. Sometimes if you're worried it helps to get into a pattern of doing a count once or twice a day to reassure you xxx
I am having to do a chart to monitor movements as last week I was feeling him maybe 5/6 times a day. But as soon as I started the chart who started moving loads again I have just hit 9/10 movement patterns this weekend. But it is so hard to notice and fill it in especially if you are out and about.
Hid movements are deffo rolls as he often moves from my right (his normal place) to my left. He also sticks his bum out loads. I also feel when he is on my bladder. But I don't get pokes and kicks now at all.
If I sit down the only way I can describe it is like a bunch of eels swimming in my belly
I was told on saturday reduce fetal movement should be investigated, and althoyugh they say 10 movements in 24 hours, they would rather you be a pain in the arse and make sure baby is well then leave things and you worry or baby be poorly.
At 32 weeks baby should still be active, I am 33 weeks and my bump is measuring 30cm so nice and snug but my midwife sent me for CTG monitoring on saturday and I was kept in so doctors could keep an eye.
Baby can have a strong heartbeat but reduced fetal movement could be a sign that baby is poorly. While yes when it gets a bit snug baby will chnage the types of movements, baby will still be active in the sense that they dont just stop or slow movements that drastically.
Ring your labour ward and speak to them babe....without wanting to worry you, midwifes can be lack where by the maternity/labour wards have a completely deifferent stand point, found that out myself this weekend babes...
Best of luck Im sure baby is just having a few lazy days... xxxx
