I have always heard that babies can have lazy days too, so it may just be a lazy day for your little one...do your movement counts and if its still concerning you in a little bit, it never hurts to call...always better to be safe then sorry!

I think at this point it can be normal for movement to slow down. They have a lot less room to move around now. I've also heard that sometimes their movement slows down right before labor (that's not always true though). If you're concerned give your Dr a call though.

quite normal, but you should still feel 4 movements after eating a full meal and laying down for 30 minutes. this one has days where i barely feel him at all unless i really concentrate and other days when he's in a good position and i swear i can see him practice breathing. it's freaky.

I'm 40w 2d and definitely have felt less movement in the past couple weeks as the little guy got big for his space. Have been on the baby monitor two times, both eventuall showing (once after juice) that he was moving the normal amount - but it was tougher for me to tell, less jutting-foot-in-side movements, plus it helped to have the constriction of the monitor belts, and just be focused on nothing but his movement. My husband and I also used a flashlight and lying on my right side (which the baby doesn't like) to get him to move.

Never hurts to call your doctor -- I went in for a last-minute appt at 36w after feeling a lot less movement and a high amount of pressure, and was just so comforted to hear the strong heartbeat and know everything was fine.

In the last few days before I went into labor I was concerned that I was feeling less movement. I still felt her just not as much... probably because she was engaged real low and was storing up energy for her grand entrance. If you're really worried though I would call your doctor, better to be safe than sorry. Couldn't hurt to check things out, but I'm sure everything is fine *hugs*

Josiah slowed down the last few days too. I would have to poke him and do a lot to get him to move.

Glad your little one started moving for you. Sounds like he's getting ready to be born soon.

When I had pre-term at 32 weeks, the whole day before I went into L&D I wasn't feeling Cole move much either...my midwife told me that the lack of movement can be a response to something going on as far as labor is concerned....so maybe you will have him very soon!

Baby may still be moving, but being they are running out of room you may not notice the movements as much. If you are really concerned though call your doc.
