I hope she starts moving soon. Did you ever try to orange juice or shaking your belly a little?

Unless the cord is pinched you don't need to worry about it. If her oxygen is low it is because your oxygen is low or the placenta isn't function correctly. Babies don't breath. Their oxygen comes with the blood in the cord. As long as the blood is flowing she is getting what is there. Babies and their cords are covered in slippery stuff the same as a fish. Have you ever tried to catch a live fish with your hands and had it slide right out? Okay so stop saying ridiculous things about cords being wrapped too tight. It is a good idea to get checked out and find out if there is anything wrong or if she is just napping from all of yesterday's kickboxing. But please stop perpetuating the cord myths. And I don't think she should be running out of room at only 6 months. Of course I hope she is fine and wish you both well.
