I'm 39 weeks and I have a very active little boy. the past 12+ hours he hasn't moved... I tried drinking apple juice and laying on my side but he still hasn't moved. what should I do?

Drink a tall glass of cold water with ice lie on your left side.

You need to go to the ER,  Sarah.  You've already tried what they would tell you to do - drink sugary juice and lie down on your side.

Since that didn't wake your baby up,  you need to be seen.

I see these posts on here all the time and almost always the baby is fine,  but now's the time to do something if there's a problem.

I did end up coming to the ER, the heart rate is good but they couldn't get him to move at first either. he's jumped around a few times now, and I'm feeling way more at ease. thank you!
