31 weeks pregnant, worried about change in movement... please share your experience
I'm officially 31 and 3 days and since yesterday bubs seems much quieter.. I still feel wiggles and such but not nearly as frequent. Usually at bedtime he goes insane and has insane periods throughout he day, but today I have only felt a few squirms or wiggles.... this is stressing me out. What are your babies doing at this stage? I'm fairly big in my belly and a petite person, is it possible he is just running out of room.
At 31 weeks there is still a bit of room and you should still be able to feel movement. Sometimes baba can be facing a different direction causing you to not feel movement as much. If it has lessened you should call your doctor. It's better to be safe that way and have peace of mind.
I'm still feeling it, just not as often today it seems. For example, he is wiggling right now, but no real belly "waves" or big kicks or pokes, just little ripples or little subtle movements. I still feel and see my belly move but its just not as intense today. Think I will call just for reassurance.
I was like that a couple of weeks a go so went and got checked out and was told it was because I was stressed. They said to me that babies react to your feelings so for example if you feel poorly they will be quieter etc and because I was stressing out it caused baby to be a bit quieter. Once I got him checked out and saw he was fine I relaxed a whole lot and he became very active again. Maybe it could be the same for you. Your baby is getting a bit more cramped now but I was told they should still follow the same pattern. If i was you I would get checked out just to be on the safe side and put your mind at rest you will feel so much better afterwards. I'm sure baby is fine though. Hope your ok and not stressing too much xx
At 29 or 30 weeks I actually had this happen to me and also had it happen with my first at 32 weeks. I went hours without feeling him at all. I went and got monitored and sure enough he was moving up a storm. I actually realized that I can see him through my stomach,moving, but I can't feel it. I was laying down and kept seeing these huge movements,but never felt any of them. Lay on your left side, drink something sweet, and relax. I also suggest looking at your stomach,laying down, to see if you can see the baby moving. If you don't feel anything or less than 10 kicks in an hour or two then call your doctor. Sometimes they just have their lazy days
This happened to me at around 29 or 30 weeks. My little girl is normally very active but was super quiet for two days. Scared me so much! I called for reassurance and now she's back to her old self, moving up a storm all day everyday. I wouldn't worry since you can still feel bubs moving but if you want go ahead and call for reassurance. Never hurts to be safe.(:
I had this through the night - movement felt quieter yesterday, and then I didn't feel anything at all when I woke several times in the night. Seems more normal this morning, though, especially after a big glass of cold water so I'm not going to worry just yet.
