  • As you get further along, baby has less and less room to move around. Have you noticed that when she slows down on her movements, that you are more active? Normally, when we are more active, we 'rock' baby to sleep so they move less.

  • It is normal for her to slow, however, I would call your doctor to make sure that you are not having contractions. I have 2 boys, both born premature. I thought they were pushing out against my stomach with their butts or backs and it was contractions. When comes to pregnancy it is always better to be safe!!
