low kick count, but strong heartbeat? *update

I can't get little one to move for me :-/ He wiggled a little bit when I was having my morning coffee, which is his normal. (dunno if caffeine can get to them that quickly, or if it was the warmth of it) I poked, I've prodded, I've drank juice... nothing. Booger. BUT, I have an at home doppler, and I got his heart beat no problem. I checked twice and came up with a HB of 140, which I know is completely normal. So probably a stupid question, should I go in to be checked out if I can't get my kick counts in... even though I've heard his heart beat? Or because I listened to his heart beat, and it sounded good, I don't need to worry about the kick counts? I'm 29 weeks, 5 days today. I'll be 30 weeks on Saturday. Baby has PLENTY of room to move around because he has IUGR.


update: He decided to "wake up" and give me all he got! lol. I got my ten kick counts in 5 minutes and he's still going strong. Thanks ladies :)

 I wouldn't worry, is it always that way? It's quite possible he's moving and you just aren't feeling him.

He's actually normally quite the kicker, to the point where it hurts. Right now it's all been very faint. All low, as he's sitting breech. I do have an anterior placenta, but now that I'm further along, it's quite high on the top of my uterus. But since he's sitting breech, all his movements are down low. I can still feel his head on my right side, so I know he hasn't flipped on me.

I have anterior placenta also, and sometimes I get so freake out because I don't feel her a lot. But I drink something sugary or eat a cookie and I get a few moves. I just think sometimes they are so comfy they don't want to move. And I read somewhere they sleep like 90-95% of the day.
But you can always call your doc and double check.

It's not fun that for sure. He has his own little pattern. if I haven't gone in before his usual time, bed time for me, then I will be going in then. He usually has his spurt of energy at around 930-10pm.

Ive never once counted kicks and am sure he's never kicked ten times at once. As long as he moves I don't worry.
