  • aslong as you feel the baby moving you are fine they become lessactive at the end simply for the fact they are running out of room so dont worry as long as he is movng you are fine when you dont feel any movement at all is when you should worry

  • As long as your baby is still moving all is probably fine. The movements slow towards the end because your baby doesn't have as much room to move around. If drinking juice and sitting still doesn't get the baby to move at all then you need to call your dr. But if the baby is moving, but it's just slowed down a lot, then that's normal.

  • I'm 38 weeks as well. My girl doesn't move as much as she used to, but I still feel her a lot. Only you know what's normal vs what's not. If you're worried- go in. If you want to know that it's normal for movements to slow a bit, it is.

  • Call them and they will give you instructions on how to do your own kick counts.

  • At 38 weeks it's getting pretty cramped in there and the baby may kick less. Whenever I got concerned I ate a piece of chocolate. That usually got the baby moving. But call your Doctor. It never hurts to call.
