Does your baby move more or less during labor?
I'm thinking less, because baby is moving towards and into the birth canal where there isn't much room. I honestly was in so much pain that I didn't notice if she was moving much, and late into my labor I had a epidural and was so numb I couldn't feel a thing.
In between contractions my son moved. I have also heard about a time from my OBGYN that a baby was facing head down and then turned breach. That is rare. It depends I think on the baby and how your birth goes. Each pregnancy and birth is different. Not all women will have the same experience I had and I might not have the same pregnancy or birth experience the next time.
I had an epidural, so I wouldn't know. But my guess would be that baby moves less, because there isn't much room in there to move.
