I'm pregnant in 26th weeks and from the beginning my baby not moving a lot until now, my last ultrasound was in 22 w and everything is ok?

Probably: If your ultrasound at 22 weeks was ok, and the baby hasn't had a significant change in activity level (was moving a lot and now not at all) most likely all is well. Some babies are more active than others, and may be more active at certain times of day. If you are really concerned, a quick check-up with your doctor is the right thing to do. ...Read more

First time pregnant and 26weeks 1day today and I haven't felt baby moving in past 24 hours. Should I be worried?

First time pregnant and 26weeks 1day today and I haven't felt baby moving in past 24 hours. Should I be worried?

Fetal movement: At 26 weeks, babies can begin to have sleep and wake cycles. To wake up the baby, I suggest drinking orange juice or apple juice which has a high sugar content and then see if that increases fetal movement. If not, call your doctor and make an appointment to have the fetal heart rate checked. Usually eating and drinking will increase fetal movement. ...Read more

Need MFM evaluation: Although a change in the character or the frequency of your perceived fetal movements and "kick counts" is not unusual, it would be wise to consult a Maternal-Fetal-Medicine specialist and schedule a sonogram, NST (non-stress test), a BPP (biophysical profile) and AFI (amniotic fluid index) to confirm the well being of your 7 months fetus. ...Read more

Hi. I am 19 week pregnant. I has a ultasound and the baby is not moving at all, and around the babyno watters, only hearbeat is still there. Why is that?

Hi. I am 19 week pregnant. I has a ultasound and the baby is not moving at all, and around the babyno watters, only hearbeat is still there. Why is that?

Need HighRisk OB: Many possible causes. Low movement is not worrying at 19 weeks, and the heartbeat is reassuring. I am worried about the low fluid. Was the sono done at your doctors? They may send you to a specialist. Also need to see if low fluid or no fluid. For no fluid, two most common causes are kidney problems in fetus or preterm rupture of membranes, both of which are not good. Low fluid needs following. ...Read more
