  • Perhaps moving has slowed down because the baby is bigger- not sure how far along you are. Rather than wonder and worry, call your doctor and get checked. When you get a chance, would you please post an update so we know how things are?

  • My baby does the same thing. Super active for a few days then almost nothing for a few days, then repeat. It freaked me out the first few times but now it's just normal. I agree though, when in doubt, call your doc :)

  • Sorry to alarm you, but you need to go in for ultrasound and monitoring now. Two days is a LONG time. My client had 24 hours and it was because the placenta dislodged from the uterus. That is very serious. Because I was so aware of it, when my daughter stopped moving for a few hours I went to my OB. She did not respond to stimulus (they use this shocker thing that buzzez) so they sent me to the hospital for an emergency c-section. I was 38 weeks. There was a ton of meconium in the fluid, indicating she had been in distress. I had a good outcome as my daughter did not aspirate the meconium (which can cause cerebral palsy amongst other things). If I had waited she likely would have had a very bad outcome. I am not an alarmist, but when your fetus ceases all movement you need to take it VERY seriously.
