    Default Decreased Movements at 25 weeks

    Hello,

    I'm 25 + 4 weeks with my second bub. With my first I had an anterior placenta so felt very little movement. This time I have a posterior placenta and have been feeling a lot of movements at regular times during the day/night. However since yesterday evening I have felt very few.

    I have still felt some small movements, just nothing like before.

    If I still feel very few overnight I will call the maternity ward, however until then just wondering if anyone has experienced anything similar?

    Thanks

    With any changes to your normal movements you should call maternity to be monitored.

    Have a cold sugary soft drink and lie on your back. That usually sets the baby off. But yes definitely mention your concerns to your care provider

    How are you this morning?

    Don't delay if there's significant decrease in movements, make that call. X

    I've read lots lately that say if you notice decreased movements you should get checked straight away. Hopefully the movements have picked up.

    I went to emergency last week with decreased movement at 30 weeks everything was fine and bub was well but nurses and doctors always tell you to come on when there is increase in movement doesn't matter how often it is.. you should get checked if you havent felt the baby move

    My OB always said to do the same thing as what Wise Enough said. Cold soft drink or chew on some ice. If baby doesn't start moving around after that, call your OB or hospital maternity unit.

    OP not to alarm you, but in most cases you will be fine, however if you feel any decrease in movements get checked asap! There is too much conflicting advice out there and unfortunately in my case it was too late. Women need to be more aware that it is safer to go in and get checked sooner rather than later. I hope everything is ok in your case.

    Absolutely agree. It's normal to have quiet days but you definitely don't want a worst case scenario situation. If movements haven't gotten back to normal yet please get checked. It'll ease your mind too.

    Anything outside your baby's normal pattern or if you can't wake up the baby after an hour of actively trying with cold drinks etc you should call your midwife/hospital. I've read up so much and that's my criteria for checking.
