25w4d today, the baby was very active last week this week she seems to have gotten lazy or is just active when I am sleeping. When I'm up I feel her maybe twice a day. I got so nervous I called the doctors office yesterday, they said at this point as long as I feel her move at least once a day not to worry , my glucose test and next prenatal appt are Friday, so I'm trying to not so be worrisome , I just honestly can't wait for the appointment and to hear her and know everything is okay. I'm also going to purchase the sonoline c1 fetal Doppler, I have the graco one but it is a POS. So to keep my mind at ease, hubby said go ahead and get it , he's being worrisome as well. I just need to be able to hear her and know its okay, has anyone else experienced days where the baby seems just extremely lazy? and does anyone have any experience wth the sonoline dopplers?

At this point, they are still small enough to get into a position where you don't feel as much. They also go through growth spurts and sleepy days. As long as you feel her periodically through out the day, all should be well.

Usually we tend to notice it less when we are active. I know I notice her more when I am laying down or relaxing than if I am up around and busy. 28 weeks is when you should feel the baby more frequently.

Anna has days where she's just lazy or I'll feel her move once in the morning then not again til late at night, I figure she's just moved around to where I can't feel her as well. Usually if she's lazy one day, she's fairly active the next. Or sometimes I scold her when she's less active, then later in the day I regret it because she starts kicking my bladder. Bleh! Haha. I'm sure everything is fine like the other ladies have said. I've also made my SO get the doppler out a few times when she's lazy because it freaks me out.

I have had this happen a couple of times so far, most recently yesterday and the day before that! I only felt very subtle movements, and they were very low. Now today, I am feeling lots of movements more up high. I really do think it just has to do with her position, and if she is facing my back or is feet down, maybe I just can't feel her as much.
