mom-to-be - September 20

I had my 9 week ultrasound thursday of last week, and I notcied the baby wasnt moving... the heartbeat was 174.. but... like I said, I didnt see movement... I watched other ultrasounds at 9 weeks and those babies where moving around like crazy.. is something wrong with my baby?

As long as the heart was beating I would say baby was just sleeping. I have had scans where the baby has barely stayed still long enough to count limbs and others where they were sleeping and there was little if no movement. If you are concerned go back to see your Doctor and see if he will schedule you another one. Most babies are moving around due tot he poking but it isn;t uncommon for them to be asleep a good bit too.

I had a u/s at 9w 3d and I only saw the baby move 1 time and it was only the arm. When I went back 10 days later (not for lack of movement, I had a small pool of blood and they wanted to make sure it was getting smaller not bigger) it was popping all over the place, streatching its arms and legs. I wouldn't worry at all.

My baby was'nt moving either but the HB wsa at 175 bpm. Its hard not to worry. I am 18 weeks tomorrow and I still get scared to go to the OB appt cuz I dont wanna hear bad news. haha. I wouldnt worry though. I am sure you and the LO are fine. :)

I agree with the others, baby was probably sleeping. At your next U/S, try drinking some fruit juice or eating a candy bar about 15 minutes before it starts. Food usually wakes the babies up so you can see the movement more.
