Quite a scare last night!

So, at 7:30PM yesterday, I was taking my shower. I thought how funny it was that Baby wasn't moving, since it always moves when I'm in the shower. So I started thinking back: it hadn't moved after dinner and it hadn't moved when I was lying down for my nap, 2 things that usually makes it move a LOT! Then, I realized I couldn't remember the last time it had moved, since the day before!So I tried everything: lied on my side, ate ice cream (the cold makes Baby move, usually), put a flashlight to my belly... Nothing!I called the hospital, and when they heard I had tried everything, they had me come in, just to make sure.Thank God, as soon as they put the device on my belly, we heard the heartbeat, so all was good! Ouf, scary!I stayed there about an hour, so they could monitor the HB and some contractions. The nurse kept saying, Wow, you have a lot of contractions! They don't hurt?? And I'm like, No, I've been having contractions like this for months now, doesn't mean anything, trust me!!! Anyway, Baby started moving again about 15 minutes before we left the hospital. I realize Baby has less and less room to move, but it was weird how one day I could feel it all the time, and the next, nothing...
