I don't get it..

Emersyn was moving around heaps when I was in bed... but since i've got up (almost an hour), I've not felt anything, so I am sitting here, freaking out BIG TIME.. and it's sooooooooooooooo irrational. She's probably asleep, she might be in a comfortable position, she might be resting.. but no, I think "omg something is wrong"... stupid really.

Big deep breath over there! Sit back down and relax and drink something very cold and sugary. Give yourself an entire hour to feel for movement. Even if it's a super tiny movement, it counts! My midwife says i should feel 10 movements in an hour when I'm quiet and relaxed. I agree that she is probably just sleeping and is more on a "schedule" these days versus random movement. But relax and check just to make sure.

My baby stopped moving whenever I was on the go. I agree with the pp - to drink something cold (or something you know always gets the baby going) and then sit or lie down and try not to move for a while and see if that gets the baby going.

Call your dr or the hospital if you stay worried though. Maybe getting the baby on a monitor for a while would give you the reassurance you need.

I have a few friends who've had a scare like this and their docs told them to drink a glass of orange juice and lay on their left side. How are things since you posted?

Glad that your little stinker decided to move and quit scaring you! Emersyn, it's not nice to scare Mommy like that! LOL!

Normal to have freak outs....I still do. Sometimes when Sarah gets "quiet", I will poke her to get her to move. Not the nicest thing, but helps me feel a little better. Glad Emersyn decided to cooperate.

I had something similar happened to me. It was in the morning while having breakfast at work, it was when Alex was more active. At 35 weeks, one morning he decided that he wouldn't move. I tried everything and nothing, no movement, I freaked out and went to L&D as soon as I got there and they had me hooked up he started moving
They told me that he was just having a lazy morning
