im 24+4 weeks pregnant, and had no movement for 4 days normally have movement morning and night, iv phoned up all the numbers the midwive gave me at the first appointment but no one seems to be bothered, just keep being told to ring a different number. managed to get a doctors appointment today and my dr also rang the numbers and the same happened to him was just told to ring a different number, and one near enough told him to **** off. He decided to try find the heartbeat and found it after about 20 mins. He said the heartbeat sounds normal but he said it was 240!?!
Should i be worried about the movement ?

You should go to your local early pregnancy unit

Don't take no for an answer. Or maybe pay for a private scan, although you shouldn't have to.
Do you have an actual named midwife? If so keep pressing her aswell

Iv had about 5 scans due to bleeding and other problems, my dr rang the early pregnacy unit and they was the ones who told him they cant do nothing so he rang the midwife office number and they also just said they wont do nothing, i have a midwife who is very helpful but i cant seem to get hold of her at all. I was trying friday untill sunday to get someone to help or tell me somthing and i got nowhere what so ever. my dr was discussed by the way they have treated me but also him.

Might be worth presenting yourself at A&e //. ER. You need them to do a scan really

Can you just walk in to a&e and say it? i had a misscaige last year at 12 weeks and i went to a&e with pain and bleeding and was sat their for 5 hours and actully ended up having the misscariage at the hospital that night. They told me they dont like people coming in with pregnancy problems?

If it was me I would do whatever I needed to if I was worried, you've left it 4 days and tried to get help the civil way. Have you tried researching tips of how to get baby to move?

I'm 24+2 I had this a few days ago I had only not felt movement for about 12 hours I called maternity unit and was seen straight away (at 5am in the morning) they were so helpful and reassuring! i was told to try a warm bath drinking some fizzy juice and eating something sweet then lying on left hand side for an hour to see if any movemnt happened! I would try these but also defo go get checked xx
