If you have to ask… you already know the answer. Chances are your doc wouldn’t be in right now, I’d call the nurse, explain what’s going on and he/she will either tell you to come in right away or that you should call your doctor back tomorrow if activity doesn’t pick up. How far along are you?

My daughter did this a lot in 3rd Trimester. I’d go almost all day without feeling her and then feel her just a little bit at night as I was falling asleep. I never grew very big (and even lost weight during pregnancy) so my Dr told me it was probably just that she was running out of room so she moving less often. As long as you’re getting your kick counts I’d say you’re probably okay but if you start feeling anxious about it definitely go get checked for piece of mind.

This happened to me a couple of weeks ago! i was feeling the baby move and getting my kick counts but the movements didnt feel as strong as they usually do. i called L&D and the nurse told me to drink some juice, lay down on my left side, (try) to relax, & do kick counts. she said to come in if i didnt feel 5 movements in the next 30 minutes. If i didn’t get those 5 movements, i was to come in. It didn’t take any time at all to get those 5 kicks, which was so reassuring. I think, like your doctor said, the change was due to the baby repositioning himself. Within a day or two, my baby’s movements went back to normal. They feel even stronger now than they did before.

Never feel bad for calling! (Sometimes I have to remind myself that they are used to worried moms calling in.) You know your body & you know whats normal for your baby.

Im glad you called.  But if you are concerned-go in for the NST.  I went in at 33 weeks bc I wasnt getting my kick counts and they reassured me that reduced movement is absolutely a reason to get checked out.  I noticed a difference about a week ago too and called, but since I was still getting the movements I waited till my next appt (3 days later.)  I noticed I felt the same frequency of movement, but felt them less-like they were more padded.  Turned out I had a huge increase in amniotic fluid.  You know your body and your baby.  If it hasnt gotten better and you are till worried, go in =o)
