Yes you should and please call this evening. We had this at about the same time with DC2. We called and they asked us to go in so they could monitor the baby. In the end it was nothing but all the MW said we did exactly the right thing by phoning.
Make sure you have a drink, a book, some snacks and slippers ready just in case you are asked to go to the hospital and are stuck there for a couple of hours.
cor never any relaxed time is there- they don't move enough- panic, they move to much-panic lol. As far as I am concerned as long as baby is wriggling away he/she is fine. He/she is having a good boogie and is enjoying the space to smash those dance moves out whilst he/she can before the dance floor becomes too restricted :D
It's changes in movement that are the concern, people tend to focus on lack of movement but any noticeable change is a cause for concern and can indicate distress. I asked my GP about lack of movements and he told me about sudden increase in movements, especially if they are jerkily rapid. He told me an awful story that doesn't bear repeating but it was enough to make me mindful of being tuned to my baby's movements.
I know it feels like we're all constantly worrying about movements and that there's no let up but no maturity unit will turn away a woman who is worried. I had to go the week before last when DD decided to play hide and seek. The MW who saw me told me to always get it checked out and that they'd rather see a hundred worried women and send them home relieved than miss the one who needed them but didn't say anything, it only takes 15-20 minutes to get a CTG trace but it takes a weight off. DS used to hide all of the time and I was there a few times to get him checked.
If you're ever unsure or worried just ring the assessment unit and they'll be able to advise you.
My daughter was very active but had 2 mad days. If you feel worried you should always check.it out but in her case it was when she was moving position - to head down at about the same time as op and to back to back much later on. I was worried about the second time and very experienced MW (whose judgement I trust) was not concerned.
I have a friend who had a baby go from normal, regular movement to constant, frantic non-stop movement. Thankfully she went straight in and her baby was quite unwell. All fine in the end though but she did the right thing.
