Hi,

I have had a very active bub (I'm 22 weeks tomorrow) but when I was driving to work this morning I realised I had no movement at all since I woke up and still haven't felt a thing. Has this happened to anyone else, what was the outcome??? Is she just have an extra long nap? I am going into the antenatal clinic after work.

I suddenly couldn't feel movement at about 27 weeks and it was because DS had turned and was kicking towards my back. I just dropped into the hospital and the midwives put on the fetal monitor just to make sure. It may be nothing but is always worth getting checked out if you are concerned original.gif

Try drinking some ice cold water or eating something very sweet, like a donut.

Go have a big glass of something cold and sugary (like a coke) and lay down, my tip is baby will mvoe for you. If you still feel no movement then go to the clinic.

This baby is very different to my first she generally has 2 hour nap periods a few times a day but a cold drink usually wakes her up if i feel like shes been asleep too long.

My DD1 on the other hand never had a problem dont think she ever slept and still doesnt lol

Goodluck let us know how you go original.gif

Definitely call the clinic. You can also try having a really cold drink and sitting still, sometimes you may just miss the movements due to being busy.

22 weeks is still early bubs may have just changed position. Go get a quick check if you are worried.

The exact same thing happened to my sister last week, but she is 31 weeks. Sugary drinks did nothing so she went to the hospital where her OB advised her to go and they strapped her to the monitors and everything was perfect  biggrin.gif

All the midwives said to her it's always best to go and get checked out, don't ever feel silly.

Good luck, I'm sure it will be perfectly fine.

As PP's have said - 22 weeks is still quite early to worry about regular movement, but my OB said to me at 24 weeks " you know your baby best and what is normal. If something doesn't feel normal, give me a call".

So today I did - I just had my first trip to the foetal monitoring unit because of reduced movement - I'm almost 30 weeks though - but the reassurance from the CTG and a quick scan with my OB has done me wonders.

Hope you get some reassurance from the clinic this evening.

This happened last week to me, I'm 24 weeks and DS jumped on my belly and the baby stopped moving. Ice water and moving nothing helped. I called the midwives who were more than happy for me to go in and be checked.

Baby of course started moving 15mins after being hooked up to the monitors original.gif

When in doubt, check it out. I hope everything is OK.

At 22 weeks though baby is still very small and perhaps just changed position in such a way that you can't feel. Perhaps his/her back is to your front so all the movement is to the back.

Keep us posted please.

Hi everyone,

Sorry for the late reply. Went into the clinic, first midwife couldn't find the heart beat so she called for a 2nd midwife (most horrible wait) then the 2nd midwife found it original.gif had a feel of my belly and looked at my notes. Apparently my placenta is to the front of my belly (something I didn't know) also bubs had her back to the front of my tummy. pheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeew
