Up until yesterday evening sprog has always felt close to my skin when having a wriggle. I've been able to make him love bit it feels more infernal so more faint, I'm not worried but should I be? Felt him about 10 mins ago a bit stronger again but not as aggressive as he usually is
It varies by area where you go to get checked. It may say on somewhere in your midwife notes (the pregnancy book they give you).
If it doesn’t say, just head to a and e and they can always send you on to the early pregnancy unit or the fetal monitoring unit or whatever it’s called in your area. Go to an a and e at a hospital that has maternity services obviously.
You need to ring either your midwife or maternity triage at the hospital if you can’t get hold of anyone else. They will advise you better. At 23 weeks they will likely monitor heartbeat and do the usual midwife appointment checks. Definitely get checked out- in my experience they are very happy for you to come in and would much rather they saw you 400 times than they didn’t see you and something awful happened. The numbers you ring should be on the front of your notes and with the information they give you about your baby’s movements. I got all that given to me at the 16 week appointment.
At 23 weeks I really wouldn't worry. Movements aren't supposed to be regular just yet, and although I would be concerned if I didn't feel anything at all I wouldn't be too concerned about a change in how it feels.
I don't think they will monitor you at hospital at this stage if you are still feeling movement. If you are bothered you can ring your midwife and see what they suggest, are you due an appointment in the next week or so anyway?
Oh and I'm also 23 weeks with my second. No one has even mentioned monitoring movements until after around 26-28 weeks in either pregnancy unless you don't feel anything at all.
I was getting a really good kicking in bed last night but this morning it's just little flutters. It just means the baby has moved, e.g depending on where your placenta is if the baby is moving around behind it then you won't feel as much as you will when it's no longer behind it.
