  • sounds like he is running out of room or sleeping more.

  • Kicks do slow down and become more deliberate as the baby runs out of room to grow. If you're concerned, I would definitely call the Dr.

  • Call your OB. My friend lost her child and had noticed less movement just before. Couldn't hurt to call

  • Just keep in mind:: You are supposed to feel movement everyday. I know that from when my Friend was pregnant with her last baby! They had to do lots of stress tests on her because her baby's movement was very low.

  • If you can lay down and in an hour get a kick count of at least 10 it should be okay. If the first hour doesn't happen try drinking some soda or orange juice, wait a bit and try again. If you still aren't getting anything call your OB.

  • Babies tend to sleep the most when mama is up and moving sort of rocks them. If you go for long periods of time with nothing, do the flashlight trick to see if he wakes up, or do a kick count. Make sure you mention your concerns to your doctor so they can check up on it!
