  • Yes it happens to me a lot. I am 35 weeks now and my little boy is sometimes SUPER active for a day or two and then seems really sluggish the other days. My doc said its normal. As long as you are feeling her move I wouldn't worry. She'll probably get a burst of energy again soon.

  • the rule is that you should feel atleast ten movements in two hours. Start feeling concern once the movements have completely stopped. But it's always nice to ask your doctor anyways=)

  • this happened to me, daughter now 2. It is scary and normal to feel scared. This scared feeling shows that you are already a great mom. great moms worry a lot! It is normal for baby to have more active days. Try to totally enjoy the days when baby is active. and the days when baby is less active, try to think of it as baby so relaxed and comfortable inside you that he/she is too happy to move around and smile at this idea. I loved that feeling, wish I could feel that again, remembering it is not the same. But talk to your doctor and maybe keep a log, you may be comforted to hear doctor say that all is quite normal
