Baby Movement?

I will be 23 weeks pregnant tomorrow. I've been feeling movement on a regular basis for the last 2 weeks.. the last 2 or 3 days they have kind of stopped. I think i'll feel a little bit but not like before? Did anyone go through this where just some days the baby wasn't moving very much? Just makes me paranoid! Also after intercourse last night my stomach hardened. I heard when you orgasm while pregnant it hardens? Just making sure that is normal? Thank yoU!

  • It is normal not to feel the baby move much this early. If you are concerned, you should make an appointment with the doctor or call the nurse and ask. As for the hardening, when you have an orgasm, your uterus will contract. Just lay on your side afterward. I went through the same things when I was pregnant with both of my children. Just take it easy and relax.

  • lay on your side or back and sip sugary drink like oj or hi-C. you should feel your little bug fluttering around... i do this whenever i feel "paranoid"

  • I'm 26wks with my 2nd baby, he is very active usually but if he has been really active one day the next he is usually less but a cold drink wakes him up! If you ever feel concerned tho seek medical advice hun, better to be safe.
