is anyone else feeling way less kicks and more just...movement? it's really strange, but it's almost like she is just constantly rolling around in there or something. I know when you're at the very end of your pregnancy, there are less kicks, but I still have ten and a half weeks to go. should I be concerned? I'm already bigger now than I was at the end of my pregnancy with DS.
I think it's normal, my doc told me to expect that around 30 - 32 weeks, and I'll be 32 weeks tomorrow and definitly feel the same way. I have lots of movement, but not really as many kicks anymore, more like the baby is turning, rolling, etc. She said that the bigger the baby gets, the less room it has in there to bounce and kick around, so the movements are slower and less of a quick kicking feeling, more like stretching out and turning. As long as there is definite movement, I think you're fine, but you could always mention it to your doc.
Aly is a roller too. I only feel rolls. I actually wrote about it yesterday.
Where is your placenta located? My OB assured me that rolls are fine and some women (especially w/placentas located in the front) will not feel kicks and will not feel as much b/c the placenta is in the way. I was really upset b/c I wasn't able to do kickcounts, but she assured me that not every woman is able to do kickcounts.
I would call your OB and tell them that you have always felt kicks, but now you only feel rolls and see what they say. It will make you feel so much better. I waited for days to call mine b/c I guess I was scared, but once I talked to a medical professional I felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders.
xoxo KUP and thinking of you.

Lots and lots of rolls and streching, pushing, and hands/feet moving across my stomach. I do also feel knee jabs or possibily elbows but not nearly as much as I did in the past. I would most certainly like to feel kicks more often, the rolls are really uncomfortable for me.
Me as well! Remember if you are doing kick counts, then any movement counts (so a roll counts, a jab, etc not just the "kicks). I'm at the point where you can see her roll across my belly and stick random body parts out. Lily is getting scared because it probably looks like something crazy is trying to come out of my belly.
