  1. Does anybody have periods of reduced movements? I havent really felt bubs move in the last 2 days Im quite worried. Is it normal?

    My LO slows down one day, but she makes up for it the next.

    Yes I'm sure it's normal. I think it's once you get to 24 weeks they say that if you don't feel any movement for 24 hours to contact your MW.

    Iam sure baby is just having a few sleepy days hun .
    But ! if you are ever ever unsure you can ask Midwife to check with a doppler to put your mind at ease , Iam sure she will be happy to do that .. If you havent got a doppler at home . xxxxx .

    I had this last weekend. Baby barely moved for 2 and a half days and I became very concerned. I spoke to a midwife at my local labour ward and she wasn't hugely concerned but had me go in to check on the baby so that I could relax. The baby was absolutely fine and started kicking away again the following afternoon.

    Everything is probably fine but if you need reassurance there is no harm in calling your midwife to talk it through.

    Yeah last week LO had a couple of days where she didn't move as much, but this week she's been kicking like mad. I wouldn't worry about it. :) x

    This happens to me too, especially during week 20. My doctor told me its not important to track movement until 28 weeks.

    I have had this the past few days as well...then last night he/she went all crazy beating me up! I was getting worried too, but I could get the heartbeat loud and strong on the dopler, so that always makes me feel better.

    Please don;t panic yourself over movements at this stage. I never even got a definate kick until way after 20 weeks with Caitlin.

    At this stage theres nothing taht can really tell or confirm all ok or not as far as kicks/movments go. After 30 weeks is when you should be paying more attention to babies movements daily ...

    A doppler is wonderful peace of mind at this sage I highly recommend one if you are a paniced person x

    It seems to be normal at this stage, going through a process of slowing down. My LO seems to be a little quiter now than previous days but seems to make up for it day after.
