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.

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.

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
