Im 23+2 wks with baby number 2.
A week and a half/2 weeks ago i was feeling all sorts of movements and kicks and seeing my tummy move on occasions. Now im only feeling the odd something really low down almost on my bladder.
I thought and remember things getting stronger not weaker. Should i worry or get it checked??

get it checked asap. call midwife now and say you have not had any movement. she should send you to hosp for a trace. if all is fine you get to stop worrying.

Get it checked and then you can stop worrying. Does baby normally go hyper after something sweet? Try that if you want but I would call midwife.

Cant do it now as my ds is in bed and im alone.

I am feeling something though just not as stong as it was.

if I remember rightly from my first, the movement wasnt as strong towards the end as there is less room for baby to kick around in.......... try drinking an ice cold drink, that'll wake the little one up, or even a loud noise!

Ah yes the ice cold drink.Remember now that what I was advised.

its 10:10pm not too late to call a friend? get someone to babysit dc? i dont want to alarm you.. most likely there is no prob baby just sleeping but this could be a sign of something wrong.. it will only take a short time to get reasurance.

movements should only get a bit less strong right towards the end, i.e., 35weeks+ not 23... all the advice here is sound, try icy drink, sweet things, laying down,etc, if you don;t get kicks from that I would call a m/w for advice at least...

don't forget that they can move into positions that you can't feel as much, especially at 23 weeks theres still room for that; I have an anterior placenta as well (front side) so sometimes his movements were muffled by that for me, so try not too worry too much but do call someone if you're still not feeling much, always better to make a call and get reassured!!
