last time i saw midwife, beg. jan., i asked at what stage should we make sure we have at least 10 mvmnts in 24 hrs or whatever it is. as my brain is being drained i cant fully remember what she said ! something along the lines of no need to worry about it, as long as there is generally good mvmnts. again i felt as though 2nd time round they dont seem to be bothered.

y'day and today i have felt less mvmnts than i have been recently but whether thats just baby- ie she comes to life when i go to bed! i do feel mvmnts throughout the days generally and they're lots of hiccups, and what can only be described as baby stretching herself out feelings.
anyone else similar 2nd time round ? do i need to worry at this point ? elec c/s 16march - approching 36 wks tues.

Sorry, I can't remember - DD2 was born in April 2004. I do remember having worries every now and again about movement, and I also remember the hiccups!! Just to say though that I had an elec c/s 2nd time round, and it was a really nice birth, so good luck for 16 March.

Maybe you're just not noticing them as much this time? When I got worried second time round I found lying on my left side got her moving and reassured me. I'm sure it's fine if you're feeling some movements.

thanks both.
i was thinking to myself earlier if i was to let midwfe know and they say come in, we'll put you on monitor, press button for each mvmnt, it'd be typical that she'd go mad in there and calm down at home !! hence i havent asked midwife yet. cos wasnt sure if i should.
