so i am 27 weeks pregnant and my doctor told me i should feel the baby everyday by now but i only feel him like 10 times a day or so. im not sure if that is normal or not. somedays its less then that, i might go into tomorrow to make sure everything is okay. Also i have had low fluids in the beginning of my 20th week or so, could it be possible the fluids have gone down again, if so would you beable to tell if they did.

  • Im not sure about the movement I already forgot how much I felt around that time. But i also had low fluids with my first. They can go down more I think they'll check that with an ultrasound, and I also had to do alot of NSTs with that.

  • i don't feel him everyday like they said i should and when i do sometimes it is like 10times others its only like 3 or 4 times a day. FLUIDS meaning low amniotic fluids i was down to 6 or so and that is low.

  • Some babies are very active and some are not. But you should for sure see your doctor. An ultrasound can measure the amniotic fluid level. Go in tomorrow.

  • he/she is still small enough that there might be movement and you aren't feeling it. Or he/she is moving while you are sleeping. Try counting kicks twice a day. Drink some cold water ( Or juice) and lie on your left side with your hand on your stomach. Count 10 ( kicks, rolls, etc) in 2 hrs. If you don't get 10 in an hr. get up drink some more water and juice (give your belly a light jiggle) and try again. HOWEVER anytime you are concerned you should call your OB!

  • Not to get nutty on you, but this is not in your hands. You can take your vitamins, eat well, avoid bad items (too much sugar, etc.), see your doctor and follow the directions given, and get lots of rest. If you are religious, you can pray. There is unfortunately nothing a person can do to help you feel less nervous; that is a totally normal emotion at a time like this! I would be nervous, too, an scared for my baby if they told me anything might be wrong. I had very high blood pressure and was warned I might have a stroke. I was worried I would die and that the kids might be hurt (???) It's part of being a Mommy. Hang in there, and *try* to pray for the strength to follow the doctor's directions and not be so nervous it effects the baby.

  • at 27 weeks , if you are losing fluid, you will be hospitalized at this point.I am at the same point adn just spoke to doc about this.Above all if you have any questions/concerns ASK DOC. Thats what we pay them for and they want us to call.As far as movements, you are feeling him everyday right? as long as it is not huge dramatic changes, its usually ok, but like I said ask.Write down all concerns and ask doc to help. good luck!
