Decreased fetal movement after getting the DTaP?

I wanted to know if other moms had this too. I am 34 weeks, and got the DTaP on the 31st of July. Since then I have noticed a decrease in fetal movement. I did see my OB yesterday, and we did monitor her, which led to having an ultrasound because her heart rate was flat at 131.

We did the ultrasound and the tech said she was fine. Fetal breathing was really good, her size was good, and she did a few good punches, so she gave me an 8 out of 8 for the test score. But she still isn't moving much and it worries me.

Has any one else ever experienced this? Should I just make note and tell my OB on Friday that she still isn't moving as much? This is my first, and I am just worried...

I wouldn't wait until Friday. I would call again now.  I would be worried as well.

I would maybe call again if you are really worried. Good luck, I hope everything is okay.
