Debating whether or not to call my Dr's office on this. Baby was moving non stop up until yesterday. He is still moving, just not as strong and not as frequently. I have read that they can slow down before labor so hopefully that's the case. Has this happened to any of you ladies either in this pregnancy or previous pregnancies?
Mine has been pretty active some days and other days very very calm. I think it's pretty normal for this stage as thy are growing so much and one grows in their sleep. It's hard not to worry though and I often nudge the baby to get a reaction so I know things are ok.
I have noticed just the opposite. She was so active last night I thought for sure she flipped on me. Luckily she didn't, but there were a couple of times I thought I was going to throw up from all the movement. Glad Baby's moving around for you now.
I would just check to confirm you are getting 10 kicks within 2 hours. My doc wants a call if at anytime she does not cooperate. I know we can feel like a fool for calling. My perinatologist (who I have received a discharge from) always says "we are open here at the hospital 24/7 365. We are here for you and your baby" If you ever don't get 10 in 2 hours I would definitely call.
I have noticed a significant amount of decreased movement, I can clearly tell she has completely run out of room and my Dr confirm it, she told me that she could tell as well that babygirl is pretty much out of room. I only feel small nudges here and there, I still feel enough nudges for me not to worry. I feel so bad that she's crammed in there lol I can't wait for her to come out so she can have all the room in the world...
Yep Zack was very active until a week and a half ago and then he got very quiet. OB said it could be from low fluid and the fact that their space is running out so they can't move as much. She said as long as I'm getting 8-10 movements (even if just a flutter) in an hour then I am ok.
Mine has chilled out a lot. I still feel regular movements but no more of the crazy spazz-out sessions. All I feel now are just big general movements, like she is rolling from side to side or readjusting herself. She has completely run out of room.
