I was on a couple of weeks ago rearding my lack of baby movement at 26 weeks anyhow my maternity hosp kept me monitored and i was taken in yesterday for a trace machine to be applied , the babies heart beat is perfect but there concerend why i am not getting regular movement , they also did a scan and we cld see the baby is now head down feet up. The baby was moving somewhat and the nurse was happy enough i am been brought back in on Friday , im hoping its just one of those things, the consultant said they are pleased with heart rate and maybe im just late on feeling proper kicks i am getting some movements but not what the nurse or i expect but as she said once the heart beat is strong and we visual saw movements its prob just a waiting game.
In addition to this , the nurse asked me did i know what i was having i said i didnt want to so she said she wldnt look on scan , but i cld clearly see the legs in air and babies bottom judging by what i seen there was no willy i hope she took on board what i said and was showing me a view from behind as i really wld like to not know until birth ????????

lack of willy doesn't mean it's a girl, could have been hiding it somewhere or could have been between baby's legs so I'd say ur still safe to assume team yellow. Hope baby gets moving soon did they say he/she was measuring right for dates? X

Thanks so much for your reply.
Yep said measuring well did say could padden out a bit more so hopefully he /she does over next few days...
yea LH86 id love a surprise just thinking girl now as didnt see anything between legs but at same time i told the nurse i didnt want to find out so she wld hardly shown me the gender view in full screen ??

U would only see thd bits if you were looking between the legs, either from the front or from underneath like a potty shot. If you've seen from the back or side and babys upside down then theres no way of telling if there's something between the legs so try not to worry. Girls are great though I'm ok baby still breech and showing no signs of budging so back to hospital for me on thurs to discuss next steps :/ x

I had three incidents of reduced movement and for that reason was on growth scans every week for the last 8 weeks of pregnancy. everything was fine and baby was growing great. Midwives said to me that not all women can feel all the movements. When on the trace I could here baby kicking but couldnt feel everything. Was real peace of mind to know that they continued to encourage me to go in if i didnt feel as much one day as the next. Also got to see baby regularly. x

I must add that my babys pattern was to move lots one day and sleep the next! Was always laying on my left side and drinking something cold to get him to have a wriggle x
