I have not felt Peter move yet today! I have felt a few something, that may have been movement, but he is usually VERY active! I am freaking out! I can't go into the midwife for a heartbeat check because it is new years eve, and I don't want to go to the ER if it's nothing to be worried about.... I am not spotting or leaking, and I am not having any cramps....I woke up this morning on my back, and incredibly uncomfortable, I hope I did kill him!
Does anyone else have slower days? I am really worried....
You did not kill your baby!!!!!! ((((hugs)))) I slept on my back till the end!
Ok - Drink something cold and sweet, (pop, juice whatever) eat a bit of chocolate or something and lay down and poke your belly. You will likely feel something after an hour or so.
I forget when you are supposed to start doing kick counts - I think that more like 28 -30 weeks. Right now it's pretty normal to not always be able to feel them. He's still just little.
If you don't feel something after a couple of hour - you can always go and get checked. Or at least call. You will probably be sent to L&D not the ER since you are after 24 weeks. L&D is totally used to worried moms who haven't felt movement. Usually as soon as they get the u/s out the baby tap dances!
Thank you Kiliki for my first beautiful Siggie!

I had tried everything! Cold drinks, ice cream, dancing around, poking my belly etc. He would not move! So I called my midwife and she told me to get monitored at L&D. The moment I got the gown on and got into the bed, he started throwing a frickin' party in there! LOL I bet I look pretty foolish complaining about no movement with my belly jumping all over the place.
I may have jumped the gun a bit, but I was REALLY scared! I usually feel at LEAST one really good kick every 30 minutes.... If I don't simply laying down on my side for 20-30 minutes will get him active.
They told me it was probably because I hadn't eaten until around noon and it was affecting him...
Thank you Shortcake for my siggy!

Hi! I felt this same way last night! I will be 33 weeks tomorrow and started to panic!!! Our baby boy was so chill yesterday and I was very worried. I was unsure if I should drink sugary juice or soda, since I have gestational diabetes!!
I laid down in bed and... well, let's just say that our boy MORE THAN made up for his restful day. In fact, my husband and I actually SAW flutters in addition to feeling them.
However, I did read that as I get closer to the end... he may become less active due to growing bigger!!
Many thanks to Mom2*Lauryn*Jacob* for my beautiful siggy.
