movements not as strong?

I'm 37 weeks pregnant and having a bit of a funny morning. Awake at 6 and lay in bed for an hour, didn't really feel much, so I started to panic. Got up, did some chores and dashed around for another hour and didn't feel anything.

Back to bed, on my left side and I am at last feeling a lot of kicks. Can't decide if it's not as strong as normal? He's always been incredibly active, kicking me hundreds of times a day. This morning I didn't feel right and was scared. Just not sure if I have spooked myself or if he is a little less pushy than normal.

I think I've stressed myself out too much. I'm due to be induced tomorrow due to slow growth so I am obviously extra cautious, but similarly I don't want to spend hours being checked out when I could do with the day for last minute things.

Just can't decide if I am being risky by not phoning triage, or daft turning up when I know the trace will show 30 movements!!

I had similar with my dd a few months ago. I did go down to the day assessment unit to get checked (they really don't mind and would rather be safe than sorry). All was well, but as I was due to be induced in 2 days they brought it forward and did it the next day. All was fine and dd is now 3 months old.

I would say phone them as it will put your mind at rest. Once I had thought something was wrong I don't think I would have been able to get it out of my head if I hadn't.

I was induced early for slow growth with my son and had exactly the same as you describe. I didn't want to spend my last day at hospital but my dh as adamant I ring and go down so I did. I was glad I did the trace was good and he was moving but they did induce as it was reduced and they said better to be safe. I would call them hun xxc

Thanks everyone, so exhausted I fell asleep for an hour. blush

Woke up and feel back to normal with him. Going to keep an extra close eye on him and if at any point I am concerned I will go straight in.

Thank you so much for your advice and reassurance flowers
