    Default 22 weeks 6 days & baby moving less

    My baby was really active until 3 days ago when i hardly felt it each day.

    13 health & the midwife said that babies will have quiet days & that it should be fine. But 3 quiet days in a row?? Is that normal??

    I just tried the sweet drink trick & sitting quietly (can't lie down as I'm at work) & nothing. Will try again when I get home so I can lie down.

    Had some mild lower back pain but no cramping or bleeding.

    Do you think it's normal or should I be worried?

    If you're worried got to hospital for monitoring... Go with your instinct, better to be safe than sorry. Goodluck X

    Definitely go get checked it's always better to be safe than sorry, and the midwives are always happy to do a quick monitor and make sure bub is all good.

    At 22w chances are bub has just moved somewhere that you aren't feeling as much, but it's always good to check.

    Let us know how you go x

    Heard a good heartbeat on the doppler at the doctors which is reassuring. Still no idea why bub is hardly moving though.

    He gave us a referral for an ultrasound which we can have next week (or sooner if we want) if bub is still not moving much.

    Possibly bub is in a position that you can't feel the movements much. I'd go for the ultrasound to get some peace of mind.

    I would go and have the ultrasound tomorrow. I wouldn't wait, that isn't enough movement in my opinion and a good heartbeat via Doppler wouldn't be reassuring enough for me. Best of luck.

    I went to the hospital a few weeks ago for similar reasons. The nurses said to me they would rather me ring and get checked than to just stay at home. Bub was fine but glad I got checked out

    So no monitor?

    I'd personally do a scan soon... Not to be alarming but my DD2 wasn't moving much and I needed an emergency CS then and there. It's always better to get reduced movement checked by a monitor as soon as possible. At 22w it's likely to be fine, but always good to check x

    Thanks ladies.

    I'm going to go to the obstetric review clinic at the hospital today for checking.

    I've felt some movement today but only a little & very light. Fingers crossed everything is fine with bubs!

    Just updating: I felt a few definite kicks today but nothing like as hard as last week.

    All the hospital reckons they can do at this gestation is put a doppler on (heartbeat sounds fine) they wont do a scan. So im going to get that scan next week. I didnt want to wait till then, but I thought the hospital would do something but they are just totally unconcerned.

    I hate this cause I jhave no clue what is normal & what isnt & its majorly starting to trigger my anxiety disorder which until now ive been managing without meds.
