Baby has been moving less over the past few days, however bump is hardy and feels much lower. Would not be surprised if she is engaged, however should i be worried about the decrease in movements. She used to be right mover!!!
Second pregnancy but completely forgotten what is was like with the first.
What do you think?? doctors appt in about 2 weeks so don't want to make an emergency appt and seem silly, especially since i'm in foreign country etc....
I have had 5 babies and all movement decreased at that stage, due to bigger size of baby. The test, you should have 10 movements of the baby per hour as a rough guide according to doctors. I found eating something with sugar, like chocolate or sugary juice seemed to make the baby move. Crazy I know, but it seemed like the sugar rush worked for both me and baby. Also, I would lie and sing to the baby and he/she would move to the sound (probably telling me to shut up, it's trying to sleep).
I have recently been given a kick chart by the hospital as my movements have decreased ALOT, I am 32 + 3. I was told I needed 10 movements in a 12 hour period and if I didnt get these, to go back into hospital.
