View Full Version : feeling baby

So I am a little nervious, but I don't know if I really should be. for the past 2-3 days I havn't felt Josh kick or punch hardly at all. I can feel him in there still moving and putting pressure on different areas, but I havn't felt him kick me really. I know there comes a point where he gets squished and doesn't move as much as he has, so I am wondering if that time is now...I am 28 weeks. I know he is still alive since I can feel him shifting around, but he just isn't AS active ya know. So is this something I should worry about or can it wait a couple more days (I have my next apt. on friday)

I think if you have any nagging feelings, call the doc. Better safe than sorry. Maybe he flipped and he isn't able to kick you like he had been. But lack of movement can signal problems, so I would call and have them take a look, just in case. More than likely he is fine, but there's no reason to put yourself through worry when you could have a quick ultrasound and see if he's doing well!
Keep us updated!

Agreed. If you are worried call the doc. They really ARE used to seeing and hearing just about everything so it is never a "bother" to them. :D Every kiddo is different too. DS moved to beat the band, DD not so much, this baby, only in the evening and he just squirms so...
Let us know how things are! Blessings to you! ~Kerri

Ditto....always ask. Better safe than sorry!

Babies often change their patterns, but it's better to call and ask even if it's to help put your mind at ease.
Landon hit a few days where I hardly felt him at all. It scared me and I called to talk with the nurse just to make sure. It was nice to have her reassurance that all was fine. He then was back to normal.
But it was nicer to talk with the nurse to make sure.
I'm praying for you and your precious baby.

well last night I while laying in bed I think I figured out what is going on. He has always been head down and I always felt his feet up high. Well about 3-4 days ago he felt like he was trying to flip around and when dh and I bd I thought I felt him do the final flip. So I think he is feet down now which is why I feel him moving on my pelic bones (not fun) but no real kicks except jumps on my bladder. So I think it is the position he is in, and me not being able to feel him well. So I am not too stressed out about it since I do still feel him in there and since my apointment is tomorrow morning, I will just wait. I will let you all know what they say after it.

How did things go at your appt this morning??

It sounds to me like its the position. How did you appointment go today though? I remember with Eli, I always felt so much better after hearing his heartbeat!

OK ladies, it is official, this little booger flipped to feet down :x Josh looks great still otherwise. My midwife told me that there is still time that he could flip back on his own. I sure hope so. I have another apt in 2 weeks since I have been having headache, my blood pressure was 150 somthing over 79 and I had trace amounts of protine in my urine, so she told me I have some possible signs of preeclampsia. :x So not the best apt. but nothing to cry about. thanks ladies.

Good to hear he is doing well. Don't worry about his position yet, your midwife is right, he could flip 100 times still. My DD was head up around 28 or 30 weeks, but she flipped sometime before she was born.
I actually felt when Noah flipped. It felt like it took him a few days, and his movements were weird and uncomfortable, like he was grabbing on for leverage, and after all that stopped, he was head down, and stayed. :-D
I hope you don't get preeclampsia, yuck!

Glad to hear all is well with your little one. Hope your headaches go away soon.
