    I dont have the answers hun, I think it is probably because of your baby's dilated kidneys they want to take extra special care of you both. If they were concermed about movements putting you on the CTG monitor where they do a long trace of baby's heartbeat would be the first step usually :flower: Also if they were concerned they would not of left it, a ctg or scan would of happened quite quickly hun.

    I hope this has helped a little?

    everytime i have been seen for low movements in my last pregnancy i always had a ctg. And then was also called for a scan where they check cord flow. It was standard at my old hospital . So could be routine
