I'm 29+4 and baby movements today have felt dampened and muffled. Was getting worried at apparent reduction in movements so have done the drinking juice and lying down thing - When I concentrate I am getting movements that I think are normal except for feeling like there's a cushion in the way.
Could it just have turned round maybe? First baby! I don't have an anterior placenta.
Yes, very likely your baby has simply turned round. But you can go to your maternity ward and get checked over if you are worried. They will listen to the heartbeat and probably monitor you for half an hour.
Feel better now! Had a few more movements so figured my Doppler wouldn't give false reassurance. There was a bottom or head-shaped bulge to one side of my belly button that i haven't seen before and it moved while we were using the Doppler. Found heartbeat and had some more movements now so think we have woken him/her up and annoyed it a bit!
If you do go to triage, it will be OK. They are used to it and would rather see 20 well women and babies than miss one poorly one. It does sound like you might be getting lots mor movements now though allnight.
