I'm 26 weeks with dc2 and have been feeling movements since very early on. There is a pattern to then and last night there was almost no movement. None overnight and none this morning. How worried should I be?

It's probably nothing but go and get checked out. Better to be safe than sorry.

from what I have read and been told you need to contact the hospital regardig any changes to pattern or reduction in movement, even if just for reassurance, they are there to check these things

Call your midwife. I had similar (am 34 weeks), they sent me to the hospital, put me on a monitor and everything was fine. Was a bit blush but the midwife said they always prefer to see you, just in case.

In the meantime, have you tried hot/cold drinks?

I got checked out at 26 weeks for same reason. Little punk started kicking as soon as the monitor went on blush but the midwives couldn't have been more supportive. They said it was definitely right to call.

I've had a bowl of porridge this morning and a glass of coke thinking some sugar might help but that was at about 6 am. I should call her shouldn't i

I am 28 weeks an my little one Patten is active for 3 days chill for 3 days I never got it checked before as it was early but had a gtt booked so asked to be checked while there as she had been quiet the day before, as soon as I was hooked up little madam began to kick! Always get checked if you are worried no harm in it x

Hi bre I think you should call mw. Sure all is ok but it's just not worth any risk.

The other advice I was given was to drink a pint of ice cold water and then see if baby starts moving. That worked for me - think he/she was just having a rest and I shocked it back awake again!

It's been overnight, so I would call now. Don't worry that you're bugging them - they would always rather you called when it wasn't necessary, than didn't call when it was.

I'd echo what everyone else has said, most likely everything is fine, but it is far better to get checked. I was checked for the same thing and again all was well, but the midwives were more than happy to check.

caravanista13 Thu 15-Jan-15 09:00:59

Definitely get checked - it will be preying on your mind if you don't. X

Orange juice used to make mine wriggle. I think the waters must change taste and the sugar surge stimulates.
They will put you on a monitor for half an hour if you ask your midwife. I had twins whose hearts beat in time, so did this LOTS of times as the midwife used to be worried (by third or fourth time I was more relaxed, though "well at least one of them is alive" is NOT reassuring if there are any midwives reading shock )

I can't understand why you'd wait tbh. Call your midwife or triage now and insist on being seen.

IdStillRatherBeKnitting Thu 15-Jan-15 09:17:34

Please call your midwife, it will put your mind at rest.

DD2 moved to an upsidown frog shape (can't describe, legs bent with feet tucked right by her tummy at about this time, I never felt her kick again, but got used to the sloshing about as she twisted slightly from time to time. I had her checked several times when she was particularly still.

She's still a bit sedentary, my 'indoor' child, curled up with a book rather than running around, and she's nearly 9.

Best of luck, I'm sure all will be well, but do call them.

zzzzz- surely that's not even a jokey thing to say shock

I also had a bit of an inactive day and a half about the same gestation. I managed to see my midwife on the same day and all was fine.
My advice would be to phone midwife and just get checked out. Midwife did say they tend to look more at activity paterns after about 28 weeks. But even so, put your mind at rest.x

Hope you are OK, OP. flowers

Number3cometome Fri 16-Jan-15 08:52:27

What happened OP?

RL20 Fri 16-Jan-15 09:33:25

Hi, just another one who would like to know how it went? Hope everything is ok x

weeblueberry Fri 16-Jan-15 09:34:32

Hope all is okay op. Update us if you can?

Missymum6 Fri 16-Jan-15 10:10:43

Nice warm bath made my 1st go crazy. I'd def get checked Hun im sure its fine thou xx good luck xx

KeeperOfTheZoo Fri 16-Jan-15 12:15:37

Hope you're ok OP. I had exactly the same thing at exactly the same stage as you. MAU didn't hesitate to see me when I rang them at 6am, put me on monitor for an hour. I have an anterior placenta but still feel regular, solid movements and MW told me never to use my anterior placenta as an excuse - she said nobody knows my baby like I do so if I felt something was different/wrong then they would always see me.

Everything was fine btw, hope you get the same result.. flowers
