If your feeling less movements you need to have them checked out.
People will tell you that towards the end babies have less room so don't move as much but this is NOT true. Babies movements will change from kicks to more rolls and wiggles but the amount your baby moves should be consistent all the way up to birth (babies movements shouldn't reduce in labour either).
Do You think I should call the ob sometime today and explain how that baby is not moving that much,my boyfriend said that the baby don't have to move that much but he isn't the one carrying it and don't understand how I feel
I think you should call the hospital and go in a be checked.
My boyfriend said they will just sent me home and won't do anything about it because he said I'm pregnant and it happens
Trust me they will check, I've been in hospital 3 times for reduced movements this pregnancy, they will check babies heartbeat to make sure everything is well, if all is then yes they will send you home but it is so important to take reduced movements seriously.
Babies movements are a very good indication of their wellbeing, chances are all is well but baby moving less could be an indication that something is wrong. It's always better to be safe than sorry, don't let people tell you not to worry about it, only you will know if your babies movements are less or not. Go and be checked. Good luck.
Visit www.countthekicks.org They are a UK based charity that are trying to reduce the number of stillborns in the UK by re educating women on the importance of movements. They are on Facebook too.
Your right I will go and get checked thanks
Uh babies actually do have less room in the womb as you get bigger. Kicks and punches become rolls and wiggles. Obviously if you feel the need to call your doctor then do so but I've had multiple doctors tell me it's normal. Counting your babies kicks are stress on the mind and you have to remember babies sleep up to 80% of the day. But like I said if you feel the need to call to ease your mind then do it but I'm sure she's fine :)
Babies movement DOES change the closer you are to your due date and the "further along you are the less room they have" IS ALSO TRUE so whoever said those 2 aspects are not true I don't know where you get your info but if you are getting it from your ob you need a new one. I asked the same question to my ob they told me to come in and make sure baby wasn't in distress and after the monitoring everything was fine but I asked what to do if it happens again they said it's common for you not to feel the movement as much because they don't have a lot of room to do those big movements they used to and they told me to drink juice and lay on my left side if it happened again and try to concentrate on the movement for a few hours if she started to move great if not to go in. But I would call and let them know:) but IT IS TRUE THEY RUN OUT OF ROOM TO MOVE AROUND AS MUCH AND AS HARD AS THEY USED TO
I'm not going to argue with anyone over what you see as right and wrong. I get my information from a charity that are trying to re educated women on babies movements, they are trying to reduce the number of stillborns in the UK by teaching women not to listen to outdated advise. They have medically backing and have saved countless babies lives by the information that they give out. Essentially you are in no position to tell someone 'don't worry I'm sure all is well' as the only person who can tell if their babies movements are reduced is the mother, and then they should be seen by a medical professional to confirm babies well being.
Have a look at Count The Kicks on Facebook and read through their information and see all the lives they have saved by informing women that movements shouldn't reduce due to lack of room.
None of us said "don't worry all is well" but it is true that as they grow they run out of room and the amount of kicks you feel change and they do move around less because of less room. I'm not arguing but you said it's not true when it is and it's plain common sense if you don't have much space to move you try not to move around much but I do agree on the fact if you feel less movement call and go get monitored just to make sure everything is ok. Most of the time everything is ok but it's always better to be safe than sorry. Hope everything is ok with your baby!!!
We both obviously said to contact her doctor if she feels the needs no one said to ignore it. But you also have no right pushing stressful crazy thoughts in her head about something on Facebook and something being studied in another country. You're obviously no doctor and neither are we but feeding false information into someone's head because of what you've "read" on Facebook is pretty wrong don't you think? Just because you study something from another country doesn't make you an expert.
And no one was arguing, it's s simple state of agreeing to disagree everyone has their own opinions and thoughts!
It's not false information based on something I have read on Facebook, that's simply a way for you to see what I'm talking about.
This is information that is given out to every pregnant woman in the UK (midwife will give you their information leaflets on their first visit). They are also in doctors surgery's up and down the country. So not just something I've read on Facebook at all, every midwife, doctor and consultant i have seen during this pregnancy had given out the same information. It's not just general chat or something I sstumbled across, it's medically backed information that is given to women here in the UK.
I completely understand that. But for example if you typed in "rash on private area" on Google you'd get a whole bunch on information from crazy articles about you having herpes to it being an allergic reaction. WebMD will make you think you're dying if you have the flu. Ahahah my point is, is it's very normal for mothers to feel less movement due to less room in the womb. I'm 33 weeks and sometimes I don't even feel him moving I only see my stomach doing it. The baby doesn't have your whole belly to explore, there are organs nerves everything, meaning they only get a certain amount of room. I'm def not saying your information is false I'm very aware of information on still borns. BUT like I said you can't feed it in to someone's head to read something that will put more anixety and stress in her head than that's already there, yes obviously she should contact her doctor and yes she shouldn't just ignore it. But you said so yourself you've gotten sent home three times, all it takes is a little sugar from some orange juice and laying on your left side to actually monitor your babies movement before running to the hospital. My doctor has been an OB for more than 30 years and completely agrees about the "less room in the womb". These are completely two different countries giving their opinions. I trust my doctor and the other multiple doctors who told me its normal. BUT like I said she should contact her OB if she feels the need the less stress the better! That is all :)
