    I just remembered that my sister leant me a doppler, so just had a check and his heartbeat was ticking away steadily at 156bpm. He also gave the probe a couple of almighty shoves! I'll head in tomorrow morning though if I'm still not getting much movement though.

    Please don't rely on the doppler too much hun. They really can be hit or miss unless you are experienced in using it. Please please if you are worried go in and get checked by the professionals, even if it is late at night.

    that's great. yeah that was my plan too, check that there's a heartbeat and if there's still not much activity, go in and get checked. I always got the movements though so I never needed monitoring until I was in labour.

    the Doppler should never be relief upon solely though (stating the obvious here), there may be other issues that may be causing inactivity and the strong heartbeat might give false reassurance.

Again i don't want to scare you, but please if you are truly concerned, there is only 1 thing that you need to do.
    I'm so sorry xx

    Since giving him a good poke with the doppler he's being tumbling around and kicking a fair bit. I think prodded him into action! Have downloaded a kick counter as well, so will keep track of it.

    Thanks so much for all of your advice lovely ladies 😊

    Just for the sake of providing information, I'm no expert but the count the kicks foundation say that movements shouldn't decrease in the third trimester and that the idea that it does due to decreased room is a myth. Decreased movement in the third trimester should not be ignored. Personally, when I mentioned it to the OB in my fourth pregnancy and said about thinking it was due to decreased room I was told that it shouldn't happen and consequently sent for monitoring (everything was fine).

    Glad everything seems to be okay now OP
