My midwife says as long as you get that then your fine if not maybe give your midwife a quick bell XxxX

my Lo doesn't move a great deal but sometimes i can only feel movement with my hand. I've asked mw and she said as long as we feel movements 10 times a day its fine.

I have spoken to my midwife about this several times. I spoke to a midwife again this morning when I was at the Ante-natal clinic at my hospital and they said know what 'your' baby does there are guidelines ie 10 movements a day but you might have a baby that is active at night so moving whilst you're sleeping... I have never been kept awake by movements... I have heard alot of ppl say they have (this was alo something that was worrying me) if its gets to lunch time and i've barely if at all felt her i will lie down have a 'freezing cold' glass of water and wait half and hour - i think its cruel but was told to do it becuase the baby is next to your bladder and when your bladder gets full of cold water baby thinks sod this i'm not lying here anymore its cold and tries to move - sounds mean but puts your mind at rest lol!! I have just come to the conclusion I have not got a highly active baby and she will be calm happy and content when she's here xxx

As long as you're feeling around 10 a day hon, I wouldn't worry too much. LO is probably running out of room now and it will be different movements to those lovely kicks in the ribs you may have been used to previously. x x

i had this worry last week and went to hospital when they analysed baby said its feet were sitting behind placenta and so you dont always feel the movement - but listening on a monitor you can hear the movements.
They said you know your baby best and ANY concerns go to hospital they pop you on a monitor for 20 mins and then you know for sure.
A tip the midwife gave me was take a jug of ice water upstairs to your bedroom - draw the curtains - drink lots of the ice water then lay back hands on bump - with no noise and you will feel your bump move for sure - tried and tested, it works

I've never really had much movements, but midwife has never been worried just said was a quiet baby. Really worries me lots but perhaps its a good thing we're not kept awake at night or anything
