I was worried by how little the baby moved at the scan but I’ve been hearing its quite normal. She or he moved a little bit but sat quite still for most of it. A few big kicks and a couple of bum wiggles, and turned over at one point.
Lots of people say their baby was doing summersaults and all sorts but mine wasn’t :/ also a bit worried it may be because I take heavily sedative medication that is known to cross placenta but not known to cause defects. Could it be sedating my baby?
I’d ask your doctor just in case you’re concerned that the medicine is affecting your babe.
However, my little guy was never very active, either. Even at nearly 33 weeks I see all these gifs/photos of babies kicking to the point their feet are sticking out and my little guy just nudges me to let me know he’s there.
I told my husband that I hope he’s this calm outside the womb as he is inside. Haha.
Some people just have really active babies and others dont. But definitely bring it up on your next visit just to be sure. (:
For those of you who have had your babies, what was your total gain?
I gained 40 (145-185).
30 pounds the first time…
I gained 50lbs with both pregnancies
Nearly 33 weeks and gained 15lbs.
Don’t ask me how it’s voodoo
