When do you call the dr?

I'm 28+5 and am just wondering when you call the dr regarding little to no movement? I don't want to call prematurely so I'm just not sure?

I'd call right away. But I have no shame and could care less if I was overreacting about something like little to no movement

I'd call if it is less than normal. Around 38 weeks I had hardly felt anything all day. Called and they told me to go to the hospital to be monitored. On the way there she started moving like crazy! But it was reassuring to know everything wax fine. I was also surprised that it didn't cost us anything-it was included in the delivery fee. I don't know if this is true everywhere, but it was an added surprise.

I would call. Chances are it's nothing....BUT there is that small possibility that it is something.

I would say that if you are concerned than you should definitely call without any regard to it being too premature. I went to L&D twice when everything turned out to be okay. When I apologized to the staff for taking up their time they reassured me that that is what they are there for and not to apologize. Better to get some piece of mind than to sit and worry.

The rule of thumb, according to my doctor, as if you drank a large glass of water and laid on your back in a quiet room and felt nothing for two hours, then definitely definitely call!

Yeah that!

Children have quiet days sometimes. Normally it means nothing. But BOY did I learn my lesson when I said this to my OB once! She made me do the non-stress test right then and there!

This.

I called all the time I went to the hospital a couple times for no movement. Of course he started crazy once there. I wanted to be safe though and had no issue calling and going in to check.
