Getting baby to move.

Do you ever sort of tap on your stomach or sort of jiggle it to get baby to move? I've been paranoid recently (don't ask me why) and doing this to get my girl to move. It makes me feel better:) It's not hard or anything, I just sort of grab my belly and jiggle her lightly. I like to make sure she's still moving around in there!

  • hahaha I do the same thing. Makes me nervous whenever he does not move for a while so I wake him up just to make sure. I'm pretty sure I am going to get paid back for waking him all the time when he actually gets here and I want to sleep. haha

  • I also did that with my babies.
    If you worry about her not moving enough, you can also drink orange juice or eat a popsicle and then lay on your side.
    My dr said the sugar will get them to move. Always worked for me.
