i was wondering if someone could help me? I’m approaching my 34th week in pregnancy which has relatively been straightforward apart from
some episodes of what I thought was reduced movements.
I went in earlier today and they fitted me in for a quick scan in between appointments as this was my fourth episode and second in just under two weeks. The sonographer that scanned me today asked how I was feeling and I said I don’t feel the baby is moving as much as they usually do as I try and keep a track of the number of movements daily so I know when there’s a change. But she said they’ve moved away from counting kicks or movements and to focus on a pattern instead e.g if baby moves at certain times of the day or after food/drink. The sonographer said I have to be reviewed by the doctor because of the number of episodes I’ve had and I’m no longer low risk.
I‘m now left really confused because I had focused completely on the number of kicks/movements I had in a day instead of patterns regardless of the amount of kicks. But surely reduced movements would mean baby moving less? So I knew this morning my baby moved a lot less when I first woke up when they’re usually active. But accordingly to the sonographer it doesn’t matter about the amount but just as long as baby moves at regular times throughout the day.
i’m really worried that I’ve moved out of a low risk pregnancy into a higher one when I’ve got the whole reduced movements wrong.
has anyone else had any similar experiences? Or how we can really measure reduced movements?
sorry for the longer than intended post.
Amount of movements or a pattern
