So my baby shower was wonderful. Everyone I invited showed up, we played games and it was just so much fun, it was great to see my family and friends and have them all together haveing a blast. I have such a silly family, and it was great. I got tons and tons of cloths, and so much stuff we really needed. Its amazing how people give so much to babies! We are really set now..need a swing and thats really all. So whew. Oh and diapers for some reason I did not get many of these. I will post pic soon! It was way better than I expected!

Now my question is...When you are further along you dont feel the baby move as often, Im a big girl and know that I havent felt Nathan move as much as smaller woman would, but latley he has slowed down alot. Im sure he is fine they just did a bio-physical last week and he was great. So I was telling people about the slow down of movement, and they said it happens a week or so before he will come. Does that happen before he is born because normally they are fullterm and due, and big and out of room? Or is it because they have postioned themselves low and ready? I can feel Nathan like he is gonna fall out when I am up...So I think he has dropped even though it still looks like he is high.

I want to keep him in as long as he wants to be there, I am anxious and ready, but only if he can come right how with me.

Did the movement of your baby slow down a few days before s/he came?
Thanks Nami for my beautiful siggy!

It's something you should let your doctor know about. I know they move less but should still give some hefty kicks and punches. I think you're supposed to feel them at least 10 times a day, but I can't remember. I have heard that if you haven't felt them to eat something sweet and then lay on your left side.

I would still phone your doc though and ask just to be on the safe side. With my last baby I felt a huge decrease in movement and my doctor ended up inducing me a week later without really checking to see what was going on. My baby was fine and had a non complicated delivery.

Erin slowed down several weeks before delivery, and she was induced 2 weeks early (for my emotional health, nothing to do with her).


That's a really good page. Mainly it says
There are numerous ways to count your baby’s movements and numerous opinions on how many movements you are looking for within a certain amount of time. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends that you time how long it takes you to feel 10 kicks, flutters, swishes, or rolls. Ideally, you want to feel at least 10 movements within 2 hours. You will likely feel 10 movements in much less time.[/b]
And it gives guidelines of when to call the Dr.
Thanks to babydoll213 for the siggy! My kids' blog Cora's blog

I honestly can't remember w/ my ds, so I'm sorry I don't have any info for you. But it looks like the other gals did. I just wanted to say that I'm so glad you had a wonderful shower, and a great time! You've been through a lot with your little man, and you're almost to the finish line! It's so exciting!!!
