Parent or mother's happiness during pregnancy is to feel fetal movements in the womb, mothers will feel interaction and relief when they feel fetal movements. Usually the fetal movements will feel good when the gestational age reaches 28 weeks, and this fetal movement can be an independent evaluation for the mother in knowing the growth and development of the fetus. Similarly, when pregnancy is nearing labor or 39 weeks of age more, fetal movements can still be felt every day, even though the fetal movement is not as much as before. In general, fetal movements can be felt in the range of 10 times in 2 hours, and this you can observe and count as a form of evaluation as well. However, at the age of pregnancy or approaching the time of delivery, fetal movement is usually hampered by space in the uterus that is increasingly narrow, so that the movement is not as free as before, but fetal movement can still be felt.
So if you haven't felt fetal movements in these two days, then you should immediately consult this condition with your obstetrician to ensure the condition of your pregnancy. Some things can also trigger decreased fetal movement, such as the uterine space is getting narrower, amniotic fluid is reduced a lot (risky things), blood flow or oxygen supply is not going well to the fetus. Direct consultation with an obstetrician will be able to ensure the condition of your fetus or your pregnancy is going well.
The doctor will conduct an interview related to the emergence of this complaint, the next physical examination and supporting examination will be conducted to determine the fetal heart rate, amniotic fluid, and fetal growth and development in the womb. Blood tests and ultrasound examinations can help doctors evaluate all of this. If danger signs of pregnancy are found, medical measures will be carried out as early as possible, however, if all tests show good fetal growth and normal pregnancy, then observation and evaluation will be carried out until delivery day.
For now, several businesses you can do, such as:
1. Get enough rest
2. Avoiding stress
3. Bed rest until you see a doctor
4. Enough water and additional fluids, such as juice or young coconut water
5. Avoid sleeping late at night
6. Immediately to the ER or your obstetrician
