    Hey guys, i'm a bit worried, i don't think it's serious but im a paranoid freak lol! :dohh:


    Anyway i first started feeling my little girlie moving at the start of the month, and they have been quite strong, frequent kicks, but since wednesday (day before yesterday) she's been quite quiet, she was REALLY REALLY active on wednesday and i was working a really long shift and was up on my feet all day, but since then she's not been half as active, usually she's more active when i'm less active (if you know what i mean lol).

    Is it ok that she's being quiet for a couple of days? i'm 24 weeks & 3 days, so is it still ok to be having irregular movements at my stage? :blush::blush: im so silly for worrying about everything :dohh:

    I HAVE felt her moving and kicking, both yesterday and today, and i can hear her heartbeat straight away with my doppler, and its extremely strong :cloud9:

    i'm really just looking for a bit of reassurance girlies, i don't really want to bother the midwife over nothing, i had a bit of muscle cramp last night but after a warm bath it went away, so im not worried too much, like i said just hoping for a bit of reassurance xxxxx thanx guys xxxxx

    I wouldnt worry too much tbh! I think its quite normal to have a few 'quiet' days in a row! You'll probably find that tomorrow or the next day she'll be kicking you like mad! If you can, why not drink some ice cold water and then lie on your left side...Ive heard that gets the little ones kicking!! :D

    It's funny, since we're due date buddies and all, but I could have written this post, word for word! Baby was moving loads earlier in the week, then yesterday I was at work and practically nothing all day, a few little flutters low down and then a couple of tiny kicks later when I was home and lying down, and the same today. I can't help wondering/worrying either, even though the HB seems fine!

    Maybe the babies are going through a growth spurt? I read they are quieter then...

    The same thing happening to me right now too. On Wednesday I was getting kicked like crazy but Thursday and so far today, I only feel an occasional movement. I've been feeling good movements for a few weeks now so it's alarming when the movements get weaker rather than stronger. I'm hoping bubs is saving her/his energy for tonight because I'm visiting my mom and I want her to see my belly being kicked around :rofl:

    It is a bit upsetting. I've been feeling a bit depressed today and I'm wondering if it's from not feeling bubs so much. Or perhaps because it's Friday and I have to work rather than have the day off :rofl:

    Dont worry... most days are active for me however i occasionally get a day where the kicks are fainter/less and i panic too.

    I guess its positioning of baby etc..sometimes i find baby is soo quiet in day then active at night and sometimes active in day they quiet in night. I prefer it when she active all day lol but i guess i can't control what she does. xx
