  • They will hook you up to the monitor. Meaning they will put the bands around your belly with the monitors attached to them. They will also give you a button to press if you feel a movement. And I almost forgot they will put a thing on your finger to check you heartrate.

  • They'll hook you up to monitors to check and make sure that he's moving and everything's ok. They'll only induce you if they think there's something wrong and he needs to come out now. Otherwise, it's up to you and your midwife if/when induction occurs.

  • They will just look for the heartbeat, hook you to a monitor and/or do an ultrasound. Your baby is late and growing so he/she has less room to move thus you feel less but I would want to know whats up.

  • What have you done to try and detect the baby?
    How many counts so far today?
    Usually, baby will sleep (like after birth) for most hours of the day. You can log a Kick Count after drinking orange juice and lying down for a half hour.
