I understand that movement slows down a bit around 37 weeks since there is not a lot of room for the baby to move...
I am 36.4 weeks pregnant... am I just being a worry wart? Usually my baby is very very active all throughout the day. Yesterday, I only felt her a few times, def not as much as usual. Now today, I have been up since 8am and it is now 1030 am and I have felt one very slight movement around 945, and that's it. I ate around 930- fruit loops and had a cold glass of milk... she usually is very active after I eat.
The last 2-3 days I have been a little crampy, no unusual braxton hicks contractions... I think the cramps might be from a UTI?
I am very concerned since this is not normal for my baby at all! Am I just worrying too much?

I wouldn't worry - it's normal for movements to slow down near the end of the pregnancy. If you do get concerned, call your OB and see if they can bring you in for some fetal monitoring.
