After three hours of nothing id go to l&d. I myself was just worried about baby about 30 minutes ago bc she want moving and is normally crazy this time of night drank done juice and then moved now about 15-20 times in 30 minutes. You should have at least 10 per hr

I am 38 weeks and also just had this happen. Worst feeling ever. I tried all if my normal things th at make her move and got no response. I Tried drinking cold water, doing squats and moving around then lying down on my left side.me and the husband tried talking to her. I was about to drink sugary juice or eat some sugar but right before that she finally kicked. It was about 45 minutes of trying with no response. And if the juice/sugar didn't help I was going to head to the hospital. So try to stay as calm as possible but don't let th is go on very long. Better safe than sorry. Good luck!
