Did I calm my baby down w/ what I was rubbing into my skin?!?!?!?

Ever since Sunday I have had decreased movement and it has scared me...

I was talking to my mom and she was asking what I might be doing different and I told her nothing but then it dawned on me I started rubbing some stuff into my tummy on Saturday..It has herbs and things in it and I checked them all out in the herb book and it said they were okay.. It did say that chamomile taken INTERNALLY can calm you down but can applying it EXTERNALLY affect the baby?

I know the baby IS alive as it does wiggle but NOTHING like before.. Seriously before it was quite hyper now it is just a slow bump or roll every once in awhile


For a sure-fire humdinger of a thread start one on:The Duggars,Government Assistance, Politics, Crickets,
Religion,Circumcision, Infant Ear Piercing,Spanking,Breast Milk vs Formula,Feeding kids Fast Food
/ Beans & Rice, Sniffing Butt, or Vaccinating.

I dont have an answer for you, but i would love to know too. With my son, I wished there was something I could do to make him chill out, just for an hour or two so I could actually sleep at night Not if it hurts the baby of course...

I am due about the same time as you and this kiddo has slow days/phases and then crazy hyper phases.. more crazy hyper than slow .. i would stop using the lotion, personally, and see if it makes a difference .. but do that knowing that the baby could just start acting crazy tomorrow either way..
