Fetal Movement

I'm just over 34 weeks and it seems like the last 3 or 4 days I haven't felt our lil guy move nearly as much as he has been in previous weeks. I know they start to slow down towards the end because it gets cramped in there, but it seems like our first son continued to move a lot until about 36 or 37 weeks. I've felt him wiggle a little here and there, but nothing like I'm used to. Usually in the afternoon he is really active if I sit on the couch for a half hour or so and he hasn't done that the last couple days. Is that normal?

  • If he's moving at all, he's fine. They do this to keep us on our toes and our hearts pumpin' :0) Oddly, I remember my last 3 doing just this. Why?? No idea. If your little fella is moving, albeit not much, he's fine. Betchya.

  • idk if its normal but a nurse suggested to me if you dont feel as much movement than just drink some juice and lie down...if you dont feel movement between 30-45 min. than maybe you should go get a check up just in case. hope this helps!
