  • I'm not pregnant now but I remember when I was pregnant she would have days where she didn't move as much.

  • Yes! As a matter of fact mine's having a chill day today, whereas he was doing gymnastics or something yesterday. It definitely varies day to day. Seems like the more active I am, the less he is.

  • Yes, babies have there days when they are more active and you have your days when you are more active and you don't notice how active the baby is. I am 4.5 months now and feeling the baby moves varies by the clothes i ware, how i sit, and how active I am on whether I noticed the movements or not. The further along you get the baby will slow down on movement bc the space is getting tight. As long as you feel movement through out the day, or I have even laid down and move the baby around to see it I could wake it up and get it to move, the baby is ok.
    I bought a fetal doppler so that i could listen to the heart beat if I ever worried about the movement of my baby, it was also good for dh so he could hear the heart beat since he did not attend dr apt.

  • Yep mine does that a lot. One day he is bouncing off the walls and the next i feel him maybe once or twice in the morning and then maybe once or twice at night. He has his lazy days i guess haha.

  • Yes, during my 7 & 8th month he moved constantly, 9th month he was getting bigger, had less space so he slowed a little bit. The whole time I was in labor he was perfectly still, like he was napping and getting ready for his big show. I relly began to enjoy the days of less movlement becsaue he was less likey to get a foot jammed into my ribs.

  • My first used to move constantly especially at night and with my second he didn't move near as much. Its funny because my first ended up being a more active baby after birth and my second is a calmer baby.
