  • Yeah its normal because he is losing his space and when baby's are cramped they tend to move a lot less I am going through the same thing right now it scares me when he doesnt move every hour.

  • Yes it is perfectly normal. The baby doesn't have very much space to move, after all! I wouldn't worry unless you constantly change positions, eat spicy food or drink a cold drink etc etc and he still doesnt move after a long, long period of time.
