  • the farther along you get the less you will feel the baby move.
    But if you're worried never hurts to go talk to your doctor.

  • Babies tend to slow down their movements later in the pregnancy because there just isn't as much room in there. As long as you are feeling movement, you should be fine. But if you are worried call your doctor. You can also lay down on your side and count each movement you feel. You should feel 10 movements in an hour.

  • call doctor, speak to nurse, she will most likely ask exactly when you feel baby move
    might as well start a little movement journal now

  • If you're feeling your baby at least once an hour, you should be fine. Drink something cold and lie down

  • Lie down on your left side and drink something sweet or cold. Baby doesn't have a lot of room to move anymore so not moving as much is normal. So long as you feel something on occasion. If you are worried go get a stress test done.

  • Your baby is full term and has very cramped quarters to move around in. Don't be worried, there is just no room to kick, turn or anything anymore. You've just run out of room!
