    If you are concerned please ring the hospital and ask them to explain. The midwife shouldn't have said something like that without clarifying. They must know how much us mums worry. :(

    It could be that the monitor just came displaced so it didn't pick up a constant beat. I had that happen a few times with my youngest one. It's nothing to worry about just that the baby or monitor moved out of range for a second or two.

    when I first went into labour at about 30 weeks - the heart monitor showed my son's heart skipping slowing down everything. :( The midwives had a little panic and a little fuss and panicked me and made me fuss. The next morning my consultant basically told them to stop being silly. He scanned me and showed the heartbeat was slowing with each contraction because DS was squeezing his umbilical cord :rotfl: and the skipped heartbeat - as he said they don't monitor all babies all the time - he thinks its probably normal for a developing baby :D it's just that we don't know as we only monitor for little bits of time now and then
