i dont know how exactly to put what i want to ask. i check with the doppler the heart rate is good and consistent. iam 25 weeks, however i have seen that the movements are not very consistent. he moves but takes veryyyyyy long sleeping cycles n that worries me a lot. i also do kickcounting but still very scared. is that ok. Is this a enough reason to go see the L&D room. will the even entertain me?. going nuts over this movement issue

How often are you feeling him?? Really at 28 weeks kickcounts are more accurate. You should be feeling pretty consistent movement but the baby does have sleeping /waking patterns also if you are out and about you wont feel every movement. I am just 33 weeks and i have some slower days than others. Have you lied on your left side for a while to get the blood flow going, drink some cold ice water, or some oj see if that gets him moving. But if you are not sure honestly its better to be safe and let them do a non-stress test on you to check out the baby then for you worry if something is wrong. I am sure everything is fine.

i do that juice drinking and counting thingy however his movements are soooo soft lately very rarely does he kicks hard but he does kick hard sometimes its total confusion like i said .More [hycological worry you know. i just did drink cold oramge juice and got him kicking a little but among teh 20 movements that i times his movements were all differnt he kind of just pushes sometimes sometime he just jerks like how we feel if we acidently touch something hot. So kind of confused. Its my first pregancy so far and kind of confused you know as to what to expect. Iam sorry TMI

Its ok you are feeling movement any kind of movement is good doesnt matter light, hard, a tap here or there as long as you are feeling something. Sounds like everything is fine (:

As long as the heart rate is good and steady, I think you're just fine. When is your next doctor's appointment? Mention your concerns to your doctor next time you go in. Also, do you have a nurse's help line in your area that you can call? They're great for letting you know what is normal, and for calming nervous moms-to-be down. But, if you are feeling uneasy, I say go with your instinct. If something is worrying you, even if you can't put your finger on exactly what might be wrong, go to the hospital. They will not laugh at you or send you away. Remember, they deal with pregnant women all of the time! They know how paranoid we can be! But they also know how right mother's intuition can be too...they will check you out. And a non-stressed out mommy is very healthy for baby...he/she can sense how you're feeling, and sometimes that will affect movement. (At least, it does with me...the more anxious I get, the less baby moves.) I'm sure your baby is fine, but go ahead to the L&D room if you're still concerned. What's the worst that could happen? They'd check you out, find out everything is ok, and send you home! (Or, find that you were right, and be able to help baby before things get too bad!) Both are excellent turnouts! Good luck!

My little one still goes through spurts. Sometimes she'll sleep 12 hours at a time, and then be awake for 14. Other days she'll be awake for 20 minutes, asleep for 20 minutes, etc. It just varies. Plus depending on how your baby is turned you may or may not feel movement. Rest a__sured, soon your little one will be big enough that you will feel it ALL the time and you won't worry as much.

Oh and my midwife says not to worry unless it has been 12 hours since you last felt ANY movement at all.

I am almost 25 weeks and am experiencing the same thing, decreased movement but good heart rate. I went to my doctor yesterday and he said to remember that we can't feel all of their movements yet because they still are pretty small, as we get further along in our pregnancy the babies movements will become more predictable and we will be able to feel the movements better. I hope this helps, there is a post in the second trimester about this called "baby movement slowing" put up by me.
