    Default Movements. Quiet baby?

    I'm almost 20wks with #3. I've been feeling movements from about 15wks. By this stage both my others were throwing a personal party in there. This baby is really quiet. She moves maybe three times a day and most of the time I really have to concentrate to feel her. My placenta is high posterior so that's not the reason.

    Should I be concerned?

    My third pregnancy was exactly the same indigo. He was really quiet compared to the others. He did get a bit more active later on in the pregnancy though. My OB wasn't concerned, everything else was textbook.

    Not sure if his movements weren't as obvious as everything had been pre stretched out and nothing is as tight

    He is quite a relaxed baby now though, so maybe he was just a relaxed foetus as well!

    My second was like you describe. Even now at 3.5 she is still a gentle person.

    It was such a stark contrast to my first who used to be SO active it actually hurt occasionally

    ETA: probably nothing to worry about at all, but if you are worried you could always call your care provider and have a chat.

    It is a worry isn't it. I am almost 19 weeks with my 3rd baby and I have only felt one small kick today. I eased my worries with my doppler Hopefully we do just have relaxed babies, that would be lovely!

    Thank you. She is just so different from my first two already. I got her to move lots last night hy laying on my tummy. I must have been squishing her or something

    I see my middie this afternoon so I'll just ask her too.

    A friend of mine told me a while ago that when she was pregnant with her first, she ended up going into hospital in tears a few times, convinced that something was wrong with her baby because she almost never felt him move. Nothing was wrong at all, he basically just lay dormant for the entire pregnancy! I suppose that just happens, just a quiet baby

    I am forever in a panic when i don't feel my lil man moving around, but he sure makes up for it after a day or two of small movements he will have a party and usually right as i am going to bed although i just want to go to sleep he always puts a smile on my face.

    From 24-28 weeks DS2 barely moved - maybe once or twice a day. I drove myself crazy googling 'reduced foetal movement'!

    They must go through stages?? What happens when you drink ice cold water & lie still for a bit?
