What will happen next? No movement. Harriet Philpott Due March 11 (boy); 48 kids; United Kingdom 36 posts

Earlier I post about no movement for a few days, I'm nearly 25weeks pregnant. I just had the midwife out to check his heartbeat. The heartbeat is fine, she tried to get him to move by poking him around but no movement, she said she can't hear any movement on the doppler either. I've tried everything lying on my side after drinking every ice water and all the other things people have told me to drink, and having a bath but no movement. I think I might of felt something, but it wasn't a strong kick. She said if he doesn't proper kick by tomorrow morning ring back, and they will decide what to do. Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem, and what did they do about it? And what can cause the baby to stop moving like that? Thanks:)

I went to the hospital so that they could check me and her out properly. Especially if you have a high rate of high risk pregnancies which it looks like you do. Midwives are great for average and normal pregnancies but when you are high risk you need "cutting edge technology" when problems arise.

Sometimes they'll do a fetal stress test where they put this vibrating wand on your belly to stimulate baby to move. Other than that, I'm not sure what else. Hopefully everything is okay!
