  • When I was pregnant, anytime after 30 weeks I was lucky to get 5-6 movements in an hour. I even went and had non stress tests done because I was worried and everyting was fine. My Dr actually said 10 movements in 3 hours at that far along so I personally would say 5-6 in an hour is great. Plus at almost 39 weeks baby is pretty big in there.

  • It's perfectly normal. Some babies move a whole lot at that gestational period and some are lazy. If you want the baby to move more try eating something with protein in it. Make sure that you are drinking a lot of fluids and eating at least 3 meals with protein and 1 snack.
