Did you notice less baby movements the day after your whooping cough injection??

I had mine yesterday at 25 weeks and my baby has been really quiet today. I'm currently sitting drinking cold milk to get him to move.

I'm 31 weeks exactly, had it yesterday. Baby seems to have been less aggressively kicky, more sleepy, but I can definitely feel movement, rolling and poking etc. At 25 weeks I was only just feeling proper movement (anterior placenta) and baby was quiet a lot of the time. I feel like I've been hit by a bus (had the flu jan too).

If you're concerned about reduced movements ring up, go get seen. It's better to be over cautious. flowers

Any reduced movements should be reported to the mw, maybe it is due to the vaccine but they will be able to confirm that, toy should always get checked out anyway xx

No. Get it checked out if the cold drink doesn't prompt some movement. It's probably all fine but enter to check.

Am sure all is fine, but as PP have said pease get reduced movements checked ASAP.

I had reduced movements and asked my midwife who had a listen ... Baby, on Que, started moving like no tomorrow and made me look neurotic!

Had reduced movement a day after. She's back to usual now kicking like there's no tomorrow. I had the flu jab and whooping cough (one in each arm). Wish I'd had them both in one arm as I couldn't sleep my arms were aching so much...
