Im 28 weeks and 2 days. Less movement .

About a week and a half ago the baby stopped moving as much. I went to the doctor and they checked her heart beat and she sounded great! But she still has not been moving as much! I am worried! She does still move! Its just smaller movements and less of them! What do you guys think?

  • Its ok to be worried but everything is just fine! This happens in most pregnancies around this time b/c the baby has less room to move. As long as you are getting 4 movements in 20 minutes or less then the baby is fine. Count everything u feel nomatter how small the movement - it counts. If u don't get 4 in 20 - eat or drink something sugary and count again. If u still don't get 4 in 20 go to the ER immediately!! But what u are experiencing now is completely normal! Try and relax she's doing great and will be here soon and then ur real worrying can begin...LOL

  • Not only does your baby have less room to move around now but newborn babies sleep about 18-20 hours a day. And being so far along, your baby is tiring itself out with growing SO MUCH and so fast that he/she is going to sleep more. So don't worry about the slight movements, it's normal :)
    So relax and enjoy the ride (if you can)
