23 weeks duller movements

She was kicking away like crazy yesterday but today movements are less frequent and duller. Change of position? Behind anterior placenta? Anyone experience this?

Hey Hun my little bub is like this I think they just wriggle in to different positions, I can see kicks on my stomach and then duller ones later on. I'm 34 weeks and 23 weeks try not to focus on them too much. I was the same and the mid wife said not to worry about it.

If your still concerned phone the midwife and she will put your mind at ease x

Well here I am at the hospital waiting for a scan. Heard heartbeat and that's fine so hopefully everything else is x

Has scan. She moved a bit when the doc woke her up. I think she is right behind my placenta now which is why the kicks are duller. Came home and had a ribena and she was kicking away! Little git- making me and her da worried! Phew. xx

Heey i wouldnt worry too much smile im 20wks amd have felt our lil man from 12wks, most days he goes for it all day long and night, but ive noticed today hes not been on one much lol but then again i have been very active today, and i also noticed some mornings he will be kicking away and others he doesnt seem to wake up until later on smile im sure its not much to worry about i cant wait for the kicks to get even stronger though as it started off as tiny lil flutters into full on kicks smile he likes to stick his arse up in the air alot! I always poke it back down hehe one thing i noticed also if i rub my belly for a while gently he seems to wake up smile you could try this se if it works. Hope you dont worry too much, im a first time mummy to be aswel, i had a mc last year so i know its hard not to worry.

I had something similar. 26 weeks now and worked night shift last weekend. Movement was far more infrequent for the two days after I finished nights. I saw the midwife on the first day who listened in and thought it was fine, and called the triage unit the following night who weren't very helpful to be honest as they said they couldn't do anything more out of hours but if I was still concerned to come up during working hours the next day and I'd be seen in the assessment unit, however since then the movements are back to being super active again so /i didn't go. I also have an anterior placenta and the midwives suggested this was contributing. Have to say I'm not convinced though and quite apprhensive about the next lot of nights....
