I'm worried because I've only felt slow and weak fetal movement today. I'm 31 weeks along and lately there seems to be less movement and today is the first day I've noticed them being like this.
Is this normal?
thanks in advance for any help!
do you have any way to hear the baby's heart rate without going to the doctor? My hubby can sometimes hear it if he rests his head on my belly and im only 28 1/2 weeks. You can try and get his beats per min this way and see if its normal? I really dont have any more advice as this is my 1st pregnancy.
Drink orange juice and lay down for half an hour. The sugar should make your little one start dancing around!
This would also be a great time to start doing kick counts. Take an hour out of each day when you know your baby is awake and active and every time you feel your baby kick, make a mark on a piece of paper. Your baby should move no less than 5 times during this hour. But remember to pick an hour when you know your baby is awake and alert! Babies develop patterns of waking and sleeping in the womb.
And finally, try to remember that your little one isn't going to move quite as much as it gets bigger. It's running out of room in there! By the time you're ready to deliver, your baby will be completely squashed and you'll be convinced you can't get ANY bigger!
