  • As long as you're going to the doc tomorrow I would relax. Tell them your concerns and they'll check everything out. Sometimes in the later weeks they slow down a bit because there just isn't as much room as there was before.

  • I think that you are ok, but I'm no doctor. The baby starts to slow way down when they are getting ready for their arrival :) And it sounds like you are definitely nesting!! lol.
    What I suggest is mark down everytime you feel him move, and if you are truly worried.. call your OB!! They will tell you if they are worried and such.

  • First and for most your NESTING BIG TIME!! And while you can over do it and over tire yourself it is unlikely to harm your baby.

    HOWEVER, you should lay down on your left side RIGHT NOW and drink some really sweet juice. Count how many times your baby kicks. He should kick 2 times in 2 hours. If this doesn't happen go to labor and delivery ASAP!

  • Your just going through the nesting stage. Your baby is probably running out of room in there to move. mine stopped moving alot when i get real close to delivery. but when he moved it was huge. my whole belly would shift. =) I wouldnt stress about it. Just be honest with your doctor and if he/she feels somethings wrong, they'll let you know. you just need to relax.

  • You can try to kind of tickle him a bit. I used to do that all time when I was worried. You just kind of poke your belly a little (not too hard). Often baby will kick back. But it's probably like the PPs said. He's just running out of space. The other thing you can do is drink something ice cold, and lots of it. That'll often wake a sleepy baby, too.
