How far along are you?
Drink some OJ, lay down for 30 minutes to an hour, and see if that works?

Try cold water, soda, or juice. Lay on your left side and wait. How far along are you?

I used to poke her if I couldn't feel her move and she would kick back most times! :) now Im almost to my due date so I don't have that problem.

This. Left side I've heard is best, correct?



OP, there would be a day or two where Olivia wasn't moving much, and I would FREAK out. I guess some days they just have quieter/tireder days than others. Please keep us updated!

Yep, I believe so.



OP, it it makes you feel any better, this happened to me before with DS. I freaked out and went to the hospital and he was fine, moving like crazy once we got there. I felt like a spaz but it was nice to be reassured!

if you can find where she is laying, put something Ice cold against her. That should get her moving. lol

Quoting Loka Lokita:" I'll try a Sprite maybe...he's always REALLY active. It's not like him to have not moved in over an hour."


You were already having issues before this though, correct? I thought I remembered you just went to the ER the other day from another thread... or maybe I'm thinking of someone else? Sorry if I have you confused. If it was you and you've already had complications and you still dont feel him in an hour or so, I'd call your OB or go to L&D and get checked out just to be on the safe side. <3

Ahhhh I don't know if this will work for 29 weeks.... but when I was pregnant with my son, if I didn't feel him for a long time I would make a loud noise and he would jump.


I only did it twice but it was good to know he was okay.

Quoting Loka Lokita:" Yeah...I have already had my labor stopped once and am not allowed to work anymore as of yesterday's doctor appt. It's been a rough ride. "

Ok. well PLEASE try to relax. Like everyone said, try the sprite or OJ and lay on your left side for a bit, see if you get any movement at all. I'm keeping you in my thoughts, and if you can let us know!
