    i was fine until i saw MW last week i was just looking for 10 movements a day but when she said i need to find a pattern that moo has and then sent me to hospital i have been worrying ever since

    i find it hard to know what her routine is sometimes i guess i feel her mornings, afternoon evenings, but today seems quieter but not sure if its just me ahhhhhhhhhhh

    as didnt go to work i laid in bed till 10.am was dozing but didnt feel her

    at 11.30 i had cold drink and choc and felt her 6 times in 45 mins not massive kicks but movement

    had lunch now and gonna sit on couch but not sure shes as active as normal

    dont know what to do??

    I know what you mean, I find it so hard to know if what I feel is right or enough. Some days she seems to be awake most of the day, wiggling about loads and other days a bit less and the odd day even less still! I find it so hard to recognize a pattern. All I know is on a couple of occasions I've been really worried that she isn't moving enough but the next day she is back to her normal self again.
    It is difficult, you don't want to dash off to the hospital every time their movements slow down.
    Apparently they do have quieter days and this is normal, they can just feel tired some days and not feel like moving around much (like us!) and other days they will be full of energy. I also read that movement can slow a bit later on as the baby runs out of room in there!

    I thought I had reduced movement and worried myself stupid but then I had movement back to normal, the more I worried the worse I felt so if you are concerned get checked out x

    I have just seen your other post so maybe as you have a lot on your mind you miss every small movement? I have found this with myself x

    Hey Hun if ur in doubt get it checked but I have been feeling as if my lo never stops moving its as if he never sleeps lol! But then when I don't feel him for a whole I start to panic but my mw told me babies can sense stress from their mothers and they will roll into a ball and stay still so worrying doesn't help but its easier to say dont worry than actually do it I find if I lie on my side he goes mad or if I have a wee rub at my tummy he moves have u tried that? Hope ur ok x

    Better to phone and rest ur mind. Anything that's not 'normal' for ur baby should be checked Hun. Sure baby is fine but its always best to be checked xx

    Try not to worry as that does make things worse just try and relax yourself and I'm sure baby will sense when your relaxed and start making a move xx
