Hi ladies... I'm looking for tips on how to make sure movements are happening... sounds strange I know, but I've not felt anything for about 24 hours now, been up most of the night drinking ice cold water, then had chocolate afterwards, just had an ice-lly, been doing a fair bit of lying down flat on my back.... and I'm not feeling anything?? I've tried calling HS 4 times this morning and it's engaged... should I just go straight in????? Just concerned....

Drink some lucozade, coke or ice cold orange juice. If still nothing then head straight in. Babs tend to go very quite just before labour starts so maybe have your bags with you! O:o)

If you are worried at all hon I would just head straight in. Try the fizzy drink, you could also try blasting some music against bump and see if that will wake baby up :zzzz:

Just had a bottle of lucozade and felt one small roll, but thats it.... I think i'm going to head in just in case? I don't want to seen like a crazy lady and heading in if all is ok, does that make sense?? This has been my first fizzy drink all pregnancy, so I was expecting the baby to go nuts to be honest !! Thanks for all your replies..... really appreaciated !
