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.

Yep completely normal. For me right now it all depends on how she is laying, if she's kicking more internally or externally.

Same here, but I know there is definitely less room in there!

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

Totally normal! Usually, as long as you are feeling some movement every day, then it's no cause for concern.

Also say it's normal.

And yes, if your placenta is in the front (anterior) you will notice when he might be behind it more. The movements won't be as strong.

I'm new to this but Desmond will be a wiggle worm one day then really still the next. I'm almost 28 weeks. I feel more punches than anything.

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.

*Thank you AlexKatieAidenMommy for my awesome siggie*

Yes, Olivia was so active a few days ago, and then i had about 2 days of very slight movement. She has been more active again today.
