Q:

Hi. yesterday I felt very few movements the whole day and went to hospital after dinner for NST. got 6 movements during the 30 min duration. this is the 2nd time in 3 weeks that I have rushed for NST and each time got movements during the test but very few movements before that. Anyone else facing the same issue? any suggestions what I can do or do I have to go for NST each time I have a doubt?

hello...
it is common in late pregnancy as the baby has less room for movement... whenever you have a doubt just have a cup of hot liquid or cold too, and sleep and relax, then count how many movements or kicks you felt... atleast 6 in an hour is normal..

I tried that yesterday and still didn't feel any movement.no movements after dinner as well, so went for NST. still cant understand why movements were felt during NST but not an hour before that or rather the whole day.

what about the position of placenta??

placenta is anterior Dr.Shilpitha Shanthappa

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

yes because of that also you will feel very less movements... dont worry , relax and wait for the big day...
