My sister is about 33 weeks pregnant with my niece. Today she had a doctor's appointment and they had a hard time finding a heart beat and the baby is not moving as often as she should. She has an emergency Ultrasound today. What could be wrong? I am so worried and so is my Sis. This is her 3rd pregnany with no live births. Please help!!

On Friday I went in for a routine appointment and the doctor looked for 15 minutes and could not find a heartbeat. I was scared to death and then they had to get the ultrasound out. I also had had a decrease in fetal activity. The ultrasound showed a crowded healthy little girl who was hiding from the doppler and running and squirming. The movements were just not strong enough that I felt them. I have also had a late term miscarriage so I was prepared for the worst and have been through it. I hope for your sister her baby is being stubborn. I will also say that I have a touch of toxemia beginning and I am now being monitored 2 times a week.

Steff, I am so sorry to hear that, that is extremely scary. I myself am 28 weeks and was in labor and delivery Tuesday morning because I had not felt the baby move in over 24 hours. I was so scared. They found her hearbeat and said she was moving around a little, but they kept losing the heartbeat, coming to the conclusion that she was in a very awkward position with like her b___t to my stomach and somewhat diving into my back area. But when they did hear the heartbeat they said it was normal and sent me on my way. I hope that everything turns out well for your sister, please keep us updared.

Thank you for your responses Ladies. I really hope that my sister will have good luck. ES, my sis is stubborn so hopefully her daughter is too. Ha Ha. :) Her U/S is in 3 hours, I'll let you know the findings. Thanks again.

I am so glad everyting turned out ok. She has a stubborn little one like me. I maintain that my baby is a stubborn prima donna and wanted to be in the lime light.
