Reduced movements

I went in for a scan this morning as baby hadn’t moved for a few hours. He’s got a strong heartbeat, he’s absolutely fine just being lazy, but it’s so scary not being how to feel him. Does anyone have any little tips that make will make baby move? Other than sweet things, I tried something sweet and he doesn’t see...

Need to be more active

So I took a picture and it looked like I was pregnant lol I'm 8mo pp and I'm being reasonable with myself but I really need to make some changes. I also breastfeed which can make me hungrier, I need to find a balance and motivation. Any ideas on where and how to get started.

Dull period like pain

Is this the start? I’m 40 + 5 and for the last hour have been experiencing a dull ongoing period like pain while sitting on my ball. Could it just be the position I’m sitting or is this how many of your labours started? I’m really hoping this is the start before I’m induced later this week!

What do kicks feel like?

I'm struggling to know if I'm feeling kicks or not. They get described as flutters, gas bubbles and other stuff but none of it describes what I'm feeling. I'm getting kind of "beats" but hard to explain. Just wondered what everyone else's kicks felt like? I'm a first time mum so I might be too early for kicks yet.

My LB is 6 months this week and he just has no interest even when I try to tempt with toys etc. I’m a FTM and feel like he’s delayed as I see a lot of other babies his age or younger rolling and even sitting up already. :( Has this happened to anyone else and should I spe...
