Hi Ladies, I am really worried about the movements from couple of days. I felt my girl moving quite a few times for couple of weeks and from couple of days I hardly recall any movements. I am really worried. Should i call my doctor? I just drank a glass of OJ and trying to observe the movements.
Update: Well, first of all thanks for the support but I was really worried and I did not want to spend the weekend with that kinda feeling. So, I called up my Doctor she asked me to come in for an observation. Me and DH made it to the doc's office from downtown (took around hour and a half to get there though) and she checked me in immediately. she puts the doppler on a spot and bingo! there was a heartbeat, it took literally 1 second to get it! I was so glad to hear that sound! Doctor assured me that GIRLS are pretty strong and they fight a lot for the life when they are at womb. And she also told me that she would be glad to see me every other week if I wanted! so sweet of her. Now I know my bean is okay... cann't imagine going through this kind of stress the rest of pg! I hope GOD gives me the strength.[/color]
give the oj a few minutes and lay on your left side..if you don't feel satisfied after that id give your ob a call so you don't torture yourself all weekend. Im sure she is just sleeping or something but i can understand your concern
I go through this a lot. Somedays I really feel the baby, and then I may go 1 or 2 days where I can't feel the baby at all...or I may have a few scattered faint movements that I'm not sure if it's the baby or my imagination. I almost called the midwife the other day to get a doppler check, I was so worried. But then I ate something sugary and waited a few hours and eventually I felt what I thought was a movement. Later that night I felt a lot more movements. It's still early and a lot of women don't feel any movement at all until 20 to 22 weeks...that's what I keep reminding myself.
Nolan John turns 2 on 8/28/09 Thank you Jessica for the siggy!
You're also still pretty early to be feeling regular movement. Baby is small enough to hide or find a place where you can't feel kicks as well. When in doubt, though, call the doc.[/b]
I was going to say the same thing. You won't feel "regular" movement at this stage. Still lots of places for the kiddo to go. Once space starts becoming smaller you will really feel each and every move the baby makes.
Right now it is hard to tell what they are doing down there!!! Keep calm...I say that like I know all about keeping calm...hahahaha....But I am sure everything is ok!!! If worse comes to worse call the ob, they are used to crazy moms like us!!!
aw sweets, I can remember that point of the pregnancy really clearly... Gaby moved around heaps between weeks 16-18 - and then all of a sudden she started moving a lot less - I remember clearly at 19w0d, making up a big b/s story so I could leave work early, because I hadnt' felt Gaby move and was so scared, i was silently crying at work.. anyway my m/w came over that afternoon & used the doppler & it was a case of OKAY GABY CAN YOU PLEASE STAY STILL FOR A FEW SECONDS SO WE CAN ACTUALLY GET A H/B READING!... she was definately alive & kicking....... but my m/w said she thought she was in a position where she was kicking my placenta - i had an anterior placenta, and she said sometimes that can REALLY block movement.
My midwife always recommended drinking a large glass of ICY cold water - as icy as you could stand, and then going and laying down on your left hand side for as long as it took to feel a movement, but no longer than 30 minutes... I always felt a movement within the 30 minutes, on all but maybe two occasions?
Do you know whether you have an anterior placenta or not?
Just remember that 19 weeks is still really early to be feeling movement in the first place I am sure that everything is okay sweety, and i can almost guarantee that your little one, at this stage, is most active when you are least active - ie when you're asleep!!!!! I was told to try & not even pay attention to movement until around 24 weeks, which is when it gets more regular & definate.... Yea, not pay attention to the most wonderful feeling in the world? I think not!
aw im glad everything is okay. Im so happy and relieved for you! and your ob sounds like mine! mine wants to see me in 2 weeks instead of 4 this way it splits up the time between now and my ultrasound in 4 weeks of not seeing a dr. or anything ( she doesn't realize i have a doppler here i suppose) but id never turn down the opportunity for a checkup! again im sooooooo happy for you!
ps she told me she doesn't even worry about movement until 21 weeks and then having me monitor it for a few weeks after that so im sure your just fine!
