Sorry ladies I haven't gotten back but yes I did go to the dr my dr wasn't in but I saw a nurse she found a heartbeat she said it was lower than usual and that he's not very active she checked my cervics and it has softened it's really soft ??? whatever that means she ordered me to go do a stress test at the hospital so they r gunna hook me up and monitor his heart rate but I still don't feel him :( I'm just wondering what the whole thing about my cervics being soft will he come early ? It's been a scary pregnancy thanks for all caring :)

The fact that your cervix has softened could mean you may go into early labor. I'll be praying everything is okay!

GREAT that she found a heartbeat,  and great that you're going in for a nonstress test.  You're in good hands.

You don't say how low the heartrate is,  but it sounds like since your cervix is softening there's a problem with the placenta not growing with the same pace as the baby,  and not providing enough oxygen.  

You can relax and know that your doctor is on this,  and they are aware and thank God for medical technology that will bring you and your baby through this!

Better to be safe then sorry.. Your not wasting there time.. Its their job to check you and baby out.. You should feel your baby everyday without fail.. Good luck hun x

They're not wasting their time,  Jones.  I read upthread that the baby's heartrate is 110,  and that's a concern.  He's fine now,  for the time being,  but there are decisions to be made if his heartrate isn't up and with good movement.  

Hope it goes well - you're at a stage in pregnancy where if you have to deliver now there's reason to believe he'll be fine.

Glad to hear it went well.  Great that he's a big boy - it sounds like they are keeping a close eye on him.  ;D

glad to hear that jones xoxox:) did they say the movement decreased so much?
Blank
Avatar_f_tn
They didn't say but I'm gunna ask my dr I'm wondering if if could be his positioning I haven't felt my boy a whole lot this pregnancy but I still am able to be aware of when he kicks that's why I was so worried I've had so many issues that the dr was thinking about inducing at 36 weeks depending on his weight.... It worries me because a couple months ago my cousin was almost 38 weeks and she had her 37 wk check up and everything was on then she went in again and baby stopped growing and heartbeat was list so I definitely try to keep a good eye on it

jones,  when a baby that has been moving well suddenly stops moving very much it's an indication that the baby isn't getting enough oxygen.  When they aren't getting enough oxygen,  the heart rate slows and they stop moving,  to conserve the oxygen that they do have.  

That's what's happened here.  Your baby had a good heart rate and was moving well,  and then something happened to the placenta (don't know what) and the oxygen level was reduced.

He's now getting enough oxygen if he sits still and his heart rate slows - and so that's what he's doing.

I'm not saying this to worry you - your doctor certainly has his eye on this and all will be fine.  ;D

Oops  second paragraph,  I mean to say "that what it SOUNDS like has happened here".  Sorry,  I really don't know,  just going off what you are going through.
