Re: Question about fetal movement
Just a response to Wendyr and all to tell you that not all baby's respond to touch and move...mine are both the opposite. Ds would stop all together if I rubbed my tummy, it was like he was easily soothed. And turns out he was!!! He was busy from sun up to sun down when inside and then would just be quiet all night long. He would push back if we pushed on my stomach though and was more a kicker/puncher than a mover.
This one is different. He, too, calms with touch and even if you just hold your hand there. He was, from 25-31 weeks, a light sleeper. If I moved at all at night, he'd start kicking away and throught he day he had quieter times but was usually pretty active. Now I can go hours without feeling movement but when I do it is usually not kicks and punches but rolls, pushes and flips. I get scared sometimes too cause I am not used to having such little movement through the day. I usually try the lay down and count movement thing when I get worried but usually it takes me pressing hard on his 'bum' and side to side to start him moving. I feel bad, waking the poor babe!!!!
