I am 23 weeks and 3 days pregnant and i was feeling the baby movement very frequently however i am not feeling the movement at all for the last three days. Is this something serious. i am very worried.
by 23 weeks you should be feeling the baby move throughout the day every day. ive been told by my doctors that baby should move at least 10 times in a 2 hour period. and if they don't, try laying on your left side and drinking a cold glass of water and waiting a little while, and if they still don't move to call your doctor or go in to l&d. since it been 3 days, i would definitely call them right away!!!
Go to doctor ASAP, I was told that if for even half a day and I don't feel the baby move I was to go straight to a&e, I would go ASAP if you live near one if not then phone your midwife or doctor, it could just be that the baby is being lazy but it is something that has to be checked it can mean something is very wrong
Try to drink orange juice or something sweet and cold and lay down and see if you feel the baby. You don't have to count kicks until 26 or 28 weeks but you can go to the hospital and they will do an ultrasound. Good luck I hope everything is okay
I agree with everyone else see a doctor asap. You could try laying in a bathtub of water. When I took a bath and laid in the water on my back my baby would go crazy moving around. My baby is 7 now...they grow up so fast.
