Dr. Rania Mousa General Medicine
Every baby has a different pattern of waking and sleeping,If she hasn't concentrated on feeling these sensations,she may have missed them,
To help to focus and count your baby's movements,let your wife drink a full glass of cold water lie on her side with support under her bump, let Stay still for a couple of hours, during which time you should feel at least ten separate movements.
If you'd like some reassurance, here are some quick ways to encourage your baby to move:
-let her Put her feet up, have a snack, and relax. Babies are sometimes rocked to sleep while you are moving around, and he may wake up when you stop and have something to eat.
-let her have a really cold drink. Your baby may feel the change in temperature and try to move away from it.
-Make some noise. Play loud music or slam a door to see if he responds
Contact your doctor if:
-she doen't feel ten or more separate movements while lying on your side for two hours.(when moving baby stay calm ,when lying he shoud move|)
-Your baby doesn't start to move in response to noise or some other stimulus.
-There's a big decrease in your baby's movements, or a gradual decrease over several days.
