  • They run out of room and can not move as much. Are you feeling movement at all?

  • Im 34 weeks and he doesn't move as much, I just feel more pressure, the doctor said that's the baby moving- when I feel the pressure. but you have to remember, baby has less and less room, so his days of moving ALL over your belly is over. slight movements are good- My doctor told me, four movements at night within 2 hours is perfect for 34 weeks and up-

  • You kinda get use to the movements. There has been several times that I have freaked b/c I didn't remember feeing the baby move, only to realize that it's because I was so use to it that I just didn't notice.

    There has been several times when I see my stomach shifting and I don't feel it at all. It's weird. Other times I feel him, but can't see him moving. He's 7 1/2 lbs and I'm 38 weeks, so it's not like he's small.

    Chances are your baby is getting too cramped, you've just gotten too use to the movements to notice, or you're just not feeling it when he moves. The top part of my stomach is kinda numb. It happens to a lot of women.
