Baby movements few weeks before birth

Postby deepa100 » Thu Jul 05, 2007 10:07 pm

Dear parents after treatment,
I am currently 35 weeks. I have a c-section scheduled for 3 wks from now. I am told to watch for baby movements and call the obgyn immediately if I don't feel it for a few hours. I am not sure how much the baby moves as you get closer to the due date. I have read some where that they still move but less then before due to lack of space. Is this correct?
Thanks!

Hi Deepa

Well done for getting so far. You should feel at least 10 movements in a 12 hour period. If you don't, then you need to phone the hospital and go in to be monitored.

Lack of fetal movement was the reason I went in to be checked with Ellie. If I had waited a few more days until my midwife appointment she wouldn't be here today.

Best of luck to you

Jo
