When should I worry if I do not feel my son moving?

I am 25 weeks along and had been feeling him move a lot.Yesterday around 1:30pm I felt him move 1 time and that has been it. Should I call my Dr? Should I be worried something is wrong?

  • Have you felt him move at all since then?

    Lay on your left side drink some OJ and see if that gets him moving and if not then yes call you Dr.

  • yes call your dr...any decrease in movement could mean there is a problem

  • He has not moved since then. I'll call the Dr and while I'm waiting for them to call back I'll try the juice to see if that gets him going.

  • Drink cold juice or ice cold water and lay down on your side for 20-30 minutes and see if he moves, if not go to the hospital.

    But it's also not uncommon to not feel movement at 25 weeks for a day or even a few days at a time, sometimes baby faces inwards rather than outwards or makes movements against the placenta that you just don't feel even though he is still moving.

  • Sometimes we are so busy that we don't notice the movement. Lay down relax drink the juice and see if that works

    good luck mama

  • The doctor told me to not start counting movements untill you are around 28 weeks

  • So I had the on call person paged for my Ob-GYN and they want me to come in to the hospital to be monitored. I am scared, what can I or should I expect?

    I went to the Hospital on Oct 31, my Dr admitted me because of the lack of Fwtal movement and because my amniotic fluid was at a level of 4. IVs got it back to 11 in under 24 hours and level 15 by noon yesterday. My son was havind what the call D cell moments where he would dropp his heart rate down to nothing while I was there. So I was put on a steriord shot to mature his lungs faster and heparin to prevent clots. I was released at noon yesterday and sent to see a specialist by 2pm yesterday, he said that all look well and I would have to be seen every 2 weeks by my Dr and 2 week by hi untill I get closer to due and then 2 to 3 times aweek at my dr and weekly with him. Well I am going back to bed I just wanted to do a quick update since its been over 3 days.
