Yesterday and today little girl has been very quiet. I have felt very occasional wiggles but nothing like the regular jabs and rolls I've had the last few weeks. I've read this can be a result of a growth spurt making baby sleep more, but it's stressing me out big time! I just downed a huge glass of OJ and nothing. She did kick me twice this morning, so I know she's in there, but do I need to worry? Has anyone had this happen? Reassure me, ladies!

I have days like that and then days like today (he hasn't stopped squirming and kicking since I got up). Also the bigger baby gets, the less room they have to move around. Plus they can get themselves into strange positions that could possibly inhibit your ability to feel them move.

Yep, this has been happening this week to me. And I'm only about a week behind you in duedate so I really like that you said growth spurt bc I was starting to wonder.

This morning I was thinking "Geez, I wish I didn't have 15weeks+ to go bc I can't stand this worrying!"

I've noticed this some too. He usually still goes crazy in the mornings so I feel like he's okay, but he has calmed down. I still feel him a lot during the day, just not as much as before. I've read that it can be normal around this time.

Yes, I have days where she's crazy and other days she's more mellow.

I can't stop worrying. I even drank a cup of coffee to get her moving and all I felt was the tiniest of flutters. Come on, baby, kick me!

I've had this as well and just when I'm about to call the doctor, baby decides it's time to wake up. I hadn't heard about the growth spurts, but glad to know now. It makes sense that a growth spurt would make the baby sleep more and the baby has less room and can't move quite as much. I'd say not to worry as long as you can feel her, even if it's not as strong. I also figured that when it was just flutters, it may have been because she had shifted to a position where she'd be kicking in the back and I'd not be able to feel it much.

She just gave me two distinct little taps (not super strong, but there) so I'm less worried. I just wish she'd really nail me a few times so I knew she was doing okay! And since we are still unpacking I can't find my doppler to listen in to her heartbeat.

Once they have you do kick counts it is only 10 kicks in 2 hours. This is during an active time. My EDD is later than yours. Currently, she kicks 10 times in 2 minutes. However, I know this will slow down. It is hard when it does though Hope she gives you a wallup and you feel reassured.

Babies are supposed to be sleeping 14-16 hours a day or something in there.

I think my little princess didn't get the note, because I wish she would calm down at night so *I* could get to sleep.

Update - baby is kicking away! I think I may have been a bit dehydrated so I chugged water all day and she's back to beating me up from the inside.

She actually just kicked so hard my whole laptop (perched on my belly) jerked and almost fell! Hurray!
