    Hi I'm 31 weeks now and usually my lo is very active and has a pattern to his movement so much so I can usually time it but for the past couple of days he's been pretty quiet I usually get big kicks and my tummy goes mad but he's been very slow I don't know if I'm worrying over nothing he can have quiet days now and again but never this much. I've tried lying ony side my back going for a bath drinking something cold but I don't get much back do u think I should phone my mw? X

    I had the exact same problem, my lo has always been mega active but she seems to have slowed a bit recently. I ended up going to labour ward and they monitored her hb for a while etc and said she was fine. I also spoke to my mw after and she said as long as you are getting 10 movements in 24hrs it is nothing to worry about. I asked the question, even if they were a lot more active than that before? and she said yes. I hope that reassures you but if you are still worried just go and get checked to put your mind at rest :)

    I had this last week, my lo was quiet for a couple days, did feel him now and then but not as much as usual, my midwife reiterated the 10 movements a day rule. I know others have said their midwives had spoke of the importance of babies having the same movement routine each day, but mine didnt. Lots of conflicting advise, but if your worried make the call.

    If you're concerned, phone midwife and get it checked out! I've heard them going quiet can be down to growth spurts (or probably general laziness) and if you're feeling some movements, then it's fine but I wouldn't take the risk if I was really concerned! Hope everything's fine, I'm sure it is x

    I have had 2 monitorings for reduced movement and then a growth scan and low and behold the cheeky munchkin has flipped from cephalic to breech. Kicks in all different places. They keep us on are toes.
