Greetings,

As you are already 36 weeks pregnant with some symptoms of high blood pressure, protein in the urine, weight gain, now with decrease fetal movement you should consult your midwife or obstetrician urgently.

Any query, please feel free to ask.
It will be my privilege to assist you.

is the weight gain part of it aswell as i forgot to tell my mw yesterday, how many movements should i feel in an hour
Expert:  Dr. Su S replied 5 years ago.
After 36 weeks there can be slowing of movement. But when you feel a sudden slowing, this needs to be checked. Weight gain usually occurs at the rate of 1-2 ibs per week. 8 lbs gain is a bit higher.
