Im almost 25 weeks pregnant and my baby for the past couple of weeks has been moving a lot, which is how my son was when I was pregnant with him, anyway so the past like 2-3 days she has barely been moving im in nursing school and so i sit there and poke at her trying to get her to move. today she went almost 45 min without moving. it scares me i never had that with my son he was always moving. Has anyone else had this problem? Am I overreacting???

My doctor said to just do the fetal movement count. If you lay on your side and feel 10 movements in 2 hours then everything is fine. If its less than that then call and see if they want to see you.

Watching

I'll be 26 weeks tomorrow and he hasn't moved too much today. I know they say not to count kicks until after 27 weeks, but it's still nervewrecking.

My son moved A LOT more than this one. I dont worry about it. As long as I feel her moving throughout the day I know she's fine. Every baby is different, so you can't gauge it on your last.

Babies have their lazy days just like we all do! My son was very active and moved a lot, but this baby hasn't been as active, and my doctor said that because of the position of the placenta it may be harder to feel all the movements, but now she's just running out of space.

haha ya know having a girl has already been soooo much different. I feel completely different with her than I did with my son. So you dont think is should worry about it. Like i said my son moved nonstop and so i think i expect that with her. plus i freak out over everything thinking something is going to go wrong with this pregnancy

Yes I had that happen to me. When I called my doctor she told me to eat a candy bar, poke her,and try counting her movements. Turned out she was just having a lazy day... it was scary though cuz she'd be so active then one day she just didn't move. Also try a shower.. running water on my belly always made the kids move.

Thanks ladies, this makes me feel better. I just want her to be healthy and so i worry all the time. Plus about the postion of the placenta at my last doctor's appt. i had my u/s and they told me that my placenta was completely covering my cervix, but they dont want me to worry right now because they are hoping as my uterus grows the placenta will move up.
