Girls When i was at my GP app this afternoon she said she thought the babys heartbeat was a bit slow, but then it picked up when she gave it a nudge she said. Im at home now and havent felt the baby move in an hour. Am getting a bit stressed here. Im a private patient and have my consultants mobile number but i dont want to be bothering him (i know that sounds stupid) can i just have your advise on what i should do. Thanks

Give your consultant a call if only to put your mind at ease. There's no point in stressing yourself out. Did the GP say everything was fine?

Ring him - or ring the hospital and talk to a Midwife. Honestly they are brilliant - I had several "scare" like that during the last few weeks and each time they brought me in and checked me and i was reasure then. Please ring them now - there is so much they can do

Thanks babymad, yea she said my BP was low and the head was down but not engaged. I dont know why i dont ask questions when i go into the doctor but i always seem to go blank. O:| Its only now when im home im freaking out a tad. Maybe ill call the consultant just to be sure. Thanks

You do that pet, don't have yourself stressing over the weekend. I'm sure everything is fine, baby's probably having a lazy day. Best of luck :wv

Perhaps go in anyway and just get checked to truly put your mind at ease - sure there is no harm in it. Take care
