I wrote a post yesterday about my lo having dramatically increased her movements. I called the triage and everything was fine.
However, today I felt no movement what so ever, so I called the triage and was seen again. I was put on the monitor and they seemed happy with her movements. However last Thursday my mw sent me to the triage as my lo has slowed her movements then. Because I've been seen for reduced movements twice in one week I'm now being booked in for a scan tomorrow. Does anyone know what this is for etc, as the doctors seemed happy with her movements on both occasions. confused

They check she is growing as expected and the blood flow in the placenta. It's just a precaution to pick up the pregnancies where there is an issue. Hope all is well and you are reassured. It's a good thing they are not taking any chances.

I had this too it's to check the levels of amniotic fluid and the blood flow through the placenta
