Decreased fetal movement third trimester

I'm almost 8 months pregnant and my little bun has been slowing down, she will do more stretches and rolls more than anything but they aren't as strong, it's starting to scare me, I went to l&d on tues for same thing and she passed the test within the first five minutes. I've also been a little constipated the past couple days idk if that has anything to do with it.

Anyone else like this?, I plan to go to the dr. tomorrow to check on things.

Go in. If you think something is wrong, go to labor and delivery NOW!! Do not wait, go back in. Even if you've just been, go back in, even if they send you right back home, better safe than sorry. I did have decreased fetal movement when I was pregnant the last time. Please go in.

I think it is pretty normal for them to slow down on the moving as they kind of start to run out of room. I have 3 kids and it seems like the last few weeks they all slowed down a little.

Babies run out of room and can't move around quite as much as they get bigger

It's normal to feel less movement since they're growing and don't have the space to move as before

Baby just doesn't have as much room to do acrobatics. :) As long as she's still moving and responding, you're fine.

It is pretty normal for movement to decrease in the 3rd trimester. There is less room in your uterus, so he/she is not doing as many flips and jumping jacks. So long as there is some movement it is usually fine. If you are concerned though, definitely call your ob
