    Hi,

    As most of you are aware, I was at hosp yest due to high BP. 150/100 (v high) but it sorted itself out after a few hrs and was sent home.

    Over the last 3 days, baby's movements have slowed. 6 on Sun, n Mon and only 4 so far today. Haven't felt him today since around lunch.

    I'm only 5.1. Is it poss that they suddenly find themselves with that little room that they can't move? Non of the movemrnts have been kicks over the last 3 days, just slight twists.

    should I mosey on down to the hosp...again, or is this what babies do at 37 weeks??

    Cheers

    Hun if i were u i would go get checked to be safe, if your noticing such a dramatic difference for your little one then it would at least put your mind at ease. For all the time it will take to go get monitored for a bit i think it would be worthwhile. Hope it all goes well. Kx

    Huh i didn't see this post! I have decreased movements and they noticed it today on my NST exam. They did say it can happen and they are happy he has moved well. The doctor told me to drink water with ice and lay down on my left side. If no movements then to go in. I told her my movements have decreased this past week some. I am glad all is ok hun

    I'm glad your ok. My ob told me today that I should go in whenever I am unsure. Not to ever feel bad about it. I have had bp problems for the last couple of weeks. Today I felt like babe wasn't moving enough so he sent me right away for a NST. I felt so much better afterwards.....

    Glad everything's ok hun but if you ever need reassuring, just ask the hospital to monitor you for a little while.. I don't think any midwife likes seeing as little as 4 or so movements in a day. :hugs:
