19 weeks - inconsistent movements

Realised that, towards the end of last week, I was getting plenty of daily wrigglings (2nd pregnancy) particularly in the end of the day, but last 2 days had nothing - had been quite calm and assumed this was OK as it's so early, but occured to me that maybe I ought to check - anyone?! TIA!

It's probably fine - the baby might have changed position or something, but do go and see your midwife and get them to have a listen. They won't mind!

I got really panicky at around 19 weeks for exactly the same reason but the mw told me that there's still a lot of room in there and its little movements won't always be felt. She also reminded me that tiny babies tend to sleep a lot. Fast forward to 24 weeks and there's no peace!! As spinal says though, the mw won't mind if you ask for a listen to put your mind at rest.

I had the same thing. Rang my midwife today and she sent me to the Fetal monitoring centre and they said everything was fine. She also said around 19/20 weeks the baby will start to move up higher where it has more room and therefore you won't feel the movements as much. As soon as I left the hospital the baby went mad and has been moving all afternoon and evening!!

Totally normal. Before 28 weeks you should just be trying to work out if your baby has a pattern of movement (but if they do, chances are it'll change anyway). It's after 28 weeks that you have to worry if movement lessens.
