I'm 24 weeks, 25 on Monday. I just went to my Dr.'s because of a bacterial infection I contracted. Since it wasn't my regular appointment my doc quickly listened to the heartbeat, then did a culture and sent me on my way with antibiotics. My regular check-up appointment is approaching. Well in the mean time I heard a story about someone loosing their baby very late in the pregnancy because the cord got wrapped around the neck. After the fact she mentioned looking back she hadn't felt the baby move in like 3 days, but she hadn't paid much attention. Well of course now my hormones and crazy dreams are running wild, and I'm freaking myself out. I felt baby girl move like crazy on Tuesday, her typical non-stop I was begging for a hour of quietness movement. Yesterday I didn't really feel her too much, but last night I did get a good hour of real movement. But today it's past noon and I haven't felt anything. And like I said she's a baby that hit 20 weeks and NEVER stopped moving, even at night when I'm trying to sleep. I know they say 10 kicks in a hour when they're usually active and your good, but I just finished my morning cup of coffee, and nothing. So I'm being paranoid, yes? Help ladies, calm my nerves :) My doc.'s solution would be labor and delivery no matter what I say is wrong, which would just freak me out more. So I'm starting here. If others think my concerns are legitimate I'll call my doc, but please by all means if you think I'm crazy put my mind at rest and let me know :) Thanks!

First of all coffee in pregnancy is terrible for the baby...look it up. Secondly if you drink a cold cup of juice,water etc it should make her move around. Babys do sleep a lot in the womb and she may be sleeping. Poke and prod at your tummy, move your hands all around your tummy in a circle movement with a little bit of pushing while doing it (not hard) and keep doing that until you feel movement. That always worked for me when i was freaking out cause my babys didnt move for a while. Now if you still dont get any movement say by 5-6pm then i would call your doctor. But try not to freak out, until you try what i suggested. And try to stay away from caffeine it really isnt good at all for a growing fetus. Good luck and leep us posted on the movements !
