Anyone had their CS bought forward due to reduced movements?

Morning everyone,

Currently 38 weeks with first baby and booked into have a CS a week today.

Over the last week I have been having far more Braxton Hicks with accompanying pains but also reduced movements over the last 2 days. I rang Triage this morning who saw me straight away and after monitoring were happy that baby was fine and let me go home.

Just as we were leaving the Car Park one of the midwives called me on my mobile and said she had just noticed in my notes that it was my 3rd attendance with reduced movements. The first time had been at about 22 weeks and the second time about 29 weeks, so it wasn't as though all 3 attendances had been recent. Anyway, the midwife said because of the 3 episodes she wants me to return to the hospital this afternoon to see my Consultant to see if we need to take any action.

My first thought was - are they going to bring my CS forward based on the pains I've been having and now this 3rd attendance with reduced movements??

Any thoughts???

I had ctgs about 15 times before my section, they admitted me for my own reassurance to get 2 a day but all were perfect readings. I don't think they will love yours unless there is evidence of something (Doppler or ctg concerns).

Continue as you are by getting checked out and voice your concerns.

Thanks TSW

I went in back in yesterday as agreed where they put me on another monitor for further tracing and was also sent for a scan to check all was ok - which it was.

CS date has been kept the same but I've got to go back to the hospital today, Monday and Wednesday for repeat monitoring. I don't mind as obviously I want the baby to be kept safe but it's a 35 mile round trip each time we go and it means DH having to take time off work to take me. The things we do for these little babies...

I can't wait to have him in my arms and just know he's ok smile
