38 weeks ummm should i call my doc?

so i am 2 days shy of 38 weeks
I will be having a scheduled c section on the 19th

my question is that I have not felt this little one move today. I know that they say that they run out of room, but i have not felt anything at all today. I felt her moving like crazy last night before I went to bed, but not much since. I was at the docs office on monday the 5th, and I see him every week so I will be going in on the 12th.

What do you ladies think?

  • My daughter usedto love to play that game lol. Drink some juice or even a little soda lay down very still and take really deep breaths. Increased oxygen helps little ones move believe or not. If you don't feel anything going on I would defin call. Always better to be safe!!

  • If you felt her last night then wait until tonight. My dd was awake all night and sleeping all day when I was pregnant. Like pp said just take in some sugar that will make her a little more hyper. I would not worry. shes prob sleeping and if your constantly moving then thats why

  • and my dd would go for days without moving only becasue i was occupied or in a deep sleep and couldnt feel her. I woulnt worry. It would help when I would put pressure on my belly. Kinda like poking at her. It may wake her up and kick you back lol

  • Drink some juice and lay down. See if the baby moves/kicks. If that doesnt work, I would call the doctor.

  • Orange juice is supposed to really get the baby moving.. try that. But I agree with everyone else, if she still doesnt move, call your doc asap.
