So, I didn't get to see my normal doc today (I am 38 weeks) because he was running close to 2 hours behind. He hasn't been checking me because I am having a c-section on the 21st. I am ok with that because I remember it hurting before. Today the doctor, well physicians assistant, that I saw did check me. I am not dilated and only 50 % thinned out.. not that it matters!
All day since then (about noon) I have been so sick to my stomach, with occasional back pain. Not only that, when she checked the heartbeat with the doppler, she said she could hear the baby but the machine wasn't picking up the number of heartbeat per sec.. And with not feeling good I haven't been feeling my little one move around to much.
Is this normal, or should this be cause for concern? Should I call someone and see if I should go to L&D or wait and see if she's just having a lazy day in the belly?

I got checked two days ago- and I was in HORRIBLE pain for a little over 24 hours- cramps, horrible back pain, pain in my abdomen...I will NOT let them check me again, when it happened it happens, end of story. Also, since he just dropped (Im 38 weeks as well) I haven't felt him move but 2-3 times a day. I wen to L&D all scared last night, he was doing great, they told me there movement completely decreases close to labor. It might be a sign that you'll pop before your scheduled Csetion.
