I can see baby moving but I can't really feel her. Is she just in a weird position? Her HR was only 120 today, but midwife said that was fine and she was probably sleeping. I've been running around most of the day so I haven't really noticed her moving much today. Any thoughts?
She could be. I would suggest doing a kick count test. Eat something and lay on your left side and make sure she is moving good. You just don't want to take any chances. If you don't feel her, I would call the doc on-call. Just to be safe!

I did a kick count last night after playing some music for her and she did the required 10. They weren't super strong, but they were there. I also had SO get out our doppler and listen for her. Heard her loud and clear and the HR was fine.
Then at 3am she was doing martial arts. Haha. Seems like we're fine.
A lot of times as your out and about walking all over the rocking sensation lulls them to sleep and they don't kick or move as hard during their sleep. Also your getting closer so she's running out of room in there so sometimes they don't do those giant kicks as often this stage and you will feel more rolls and shimmies. Definitely always do kick counts tho at this stage and like was said if they don't do ten then call your doc cause you should still be feeling at least smaller movements.
