I have had a top loader Fisher & Paykel for 7 years and it hasn't missed a beat.
A few weeks ago I was fretting I hadn't felt the baby move for a few days, I thought it was odd since the week before it was doing workouts everyday. I was nearly going to call the midwife but decided since it was fairly early maybe it had its back to me. I think it probably did, but I spoke to my sister and she did say around the same time hers also went quiet for a few days here and there. Maybe they go through growth spurts and just sleep most of the time. This week it has been active for a few days then i won't feel anything for a day or so. So maybe it is growing.
Dh finally felt the baby kicking! Previous to feeling it he has been watching it move but every time he puts his hand on the baby well it stops!
I hosted my sisters high tea baby shower yesterday and it was such a nice afternoon, omg the amount of gifts she received was ridiculous! I told her to stop buying clothes months ago, so I think her baby will be wearing a new outfit everyday until its one!
