  • Her activity is going to slow down a bit as she is bigger and doesn't have much room to go. I remember going through that with my daughter..what always helped me was drinking some soda with caffeine and then lay down..you should feel her move. If not call the doctors.

  • She is just getting bigger and running out of room. In the last 6-8 weeks of pregnancy, she grows very rapidly. If there is a long absence of kicks, I'd recommend doing some kick counts. That is probably the first thing your doc would tell you too.
