  • no it doesnt. Babies tend to not move as much when you are that far along. The space is getting smaller for them since they are much bigger now... its normal. and it may be weeks and weeks before that baby comes out

  • even if my belly looks and feel the same? i haven't seen any change in size, in fact she was moving a lot in the last four days, it's been 3 days and she still moves, but it seems like she is sleeping a lot more, and only wakes up when she is hungry or gets the hiccups!

  • yeah even if your belly doesnt seem bigger to you.......you tend to not notice sometimes when your belly is bigger anyway because you see it every day :)

    im just wondering how you know when a baby inside of your stomach is hungry...

  • lol i've noticed that she is hungry , cause everytime i take a long time to eat, she just presses on my ribs really bad until i eat something. i guess i'm not crazy cause it happens every time.

  • well she may stop pressing on your ribs after you eat because your stomach is filling and the room in there is getting tighter too....

    and she doesnt literally eat your food.

  • 38 weeks means 40 to 42 weeks max isn't that much longer to wait, maybe less t=but two to 4 weeks more isn't that much longer. hang in there, she han't got that much room anymore.
