Post subject: Baby movements
How many times a day are we supposed to be feeling baby move? I have noticed a big decrease in movements the last 3 days I'm hoping its because he's running out of room but I do feel a bit anxious and wondering whether I should get checked. Iv got midwife at 4pm today should I just wait till then or ring someone b4? X

Its not so much how many a day, but your baby will likely have its own pattern. When they do, lay down and monitor...you should feel 10 movements an hour (at there busy/active times)
I found mine is always active in the eve and can get 10 movements in 30/40 mins

Now I feel a bit silly cus iv called them and they want me in for monitering cus I'm getting like 3 in morning 4 in afternoon and a few at night so they said they better moniter me I also said how bad my asthma has got. I do feel like I might be making fuss over nothing but what if I didn't get checked and something was wrong! Baby is doing a shift as I type so he is moving its just a lot less than he was.

hunni if you are worried get checked. i did it a few weeks ago. I didnt feel anything all morning and before that he had had decreased movement for a few days. as soon as the mw had a good feel he woke up and didnt stop for about 3 days - i have noticed that mine has 2 or 3 days of being crazy and then 2 or 3 days of being quiet - he has pretty much done that all the way through.
I get much slower movement now - more like a bum sticking out or a few jabs with his foot (which really hurt!)
If in doubt get checked. I felt silly when i went in but i figured its best to feel silly and for nothing to be wrong than the alternative xx
