Hi i am 35 weeks today. The last few days i have noticed my baby doesnt seem to be moving like he use to. I called the hospital and went for a dopler monitoring and they said everything was fine but the want me to come for another scan on monday. Baby use to be really active first thing in the morning but now i dont really feel much till late afternoon/early evening. The movements dont feel like kicks like before but rather i can see my tummy move and feels like baby is stretching out a bit. I cant help but feel worried, something just doesnt feel quite right to me. This is my first baby so i dont really know whats normal and i dont know if its just me over reacting 😭

Reduced movements should be investigated by the professionals, but they have been - could the baby have dropped further into your pelvis so the movements feel different?

He seems to be quite high up, the midwife said she can feel what seems to be his back and i can feel the streatching into my ribs. They said his head isnt down yet but she had a look on her face that just made me feel that she knew something more than she was saying

When were you seen, OP? Go in for every episode of reduced movement. My friends baby was delivered at 35 weeks for this reason. Don't worry about wasting their time. This is important.

Get yourself up to the hospital, they have to investigate reduced movements. Refuse to move until they have monitored baby

Hello I'm 34 weeks and had this too it lasted 4 days and his movements were really faint like little pushes and I had to really concentrate to feel them but when I rang the hospital they said a movement is a movement but when I told my midowfe when I seen her she was adamant they see me then she felt my tummy and said she can feel my baby too well and now I have to have a scan on Monday to check fluid. His movements used to wake me up during the night because they would hurt! But last 4 nights he hasn't woke me up and my midwife explain he's tucked up In there now but it freaked me out how 5 days ago he was hurting me when he moved then the very next day he felt sluggish and faint
