    Default Bub not as active

    I am 20 weeks and 5days Pregnant with my first and the past few days bub has been A LOT less active. He used to always move when I was getting into bed. I think he has started kicking me but I just don't feel movement anymore.

    Is this normal? Or could something be wrong?

    I was cramping the other day but I put it down to stretching pains and possible braxton hicks..

    Drinking a cold drink and lying down can sometimes wake them up. I know I have had a couple of days where I've thought "hmmm, she hasn't moved much" and then half an hour later she is kicking away at me like there is no tomorrow!

    But if you are at all worried, I am of the belief it is better to get it checked out. Much better to be safe than sorry.

    I was constantly worrying about movements during my pregnancy, It's not a nice thing! Drink something cold and sweet then have a lie down and see what happens. I used to give a gentle little poke here and there if i was terribly worried lol

    But if you are well and truly concerned it never hurts to get checked out. Hospital midwives are always there to check bubbas heartbeat and moniter it just so you can have some peace of mind. Could be something, could be absolutley nothing. It's definitley better to be safe than sorry. I do know that some babys just have the quiet days and I know for me DS was just a quiet settled baby in there lol
