  • As your baby grows it acts more and more like a newborn is how my doctor explained it to me. He said, not only do they run out of room but they also sleep 90% of the time so you will feel decreased movements. As long as you feel any type of movement doing your kick counts then you are good.

  • It could just mean that the baby is running out of room. The baby is smoshing your organs. Just talk to the doc at your next appointment.

  • You're probably getting Braxton-Hicks contractions. They say these are painless, but mine felt like labor, so I raced right in. (I already had a child and knew what labor felt like.)

    If you have ANY doubts or concerns, tell your doctor.
