Is it normal for movement to slow down sometimes? Cody is moving but not as much as he was couple of days ago. I am still feeling him move but not as strong as I did. I think he moved up some because I don't feel him or the movement as low as I did. I have been using the Doppler everyday so I know he is OK. I don't know if my placenta being in front is playing a part if he moved up. I was just wondering if this is normal. I am 27 weeks today.
Its normal for it to cycle, and for it to slow down in the 3rd trimester. He is running out of room for acrobatics!! You could always drink some soda/orange juice and speed him up a bit if you need to though.
I'm no pro... but I know it is normal for movement to slow down a bit as the baby gets more crowded. They also may not be making as many jerking powerful movements because they don't have as much room. It may start to feel more like rubbing and rolling instead of punching and kicking.
Absolutely. As they grow bigger & get more cramped they can't jerk as easily I would imagine. Also, they develop more normal sleep patterns so that will effect the times of day they move & how frequent. They are still changing positions a bit so he could be tucked in more.
Completely normal. My little guy has his days where he can't sit still and then other days where he is just lazy. But the bigger he gets the less room he'll have to move so the movements will slow down.
Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy
i agree with everyone else. My little girl is doing the same thing. ON days where she isn't moving much, i just pull out my doppler for a few seconds for reassurance. Usually I can make her move by either playing the piano, drinking a really cold glass of water, or if I cough or sneeze, she usually will respond with some sort of movement.
