I am 28 weeks pregnant and over the last week his movements have signifigantly decreased. I have my next Dr. app on Wednesday. I called this morning and they said he's just running out of room and 26-34 weeks is generally when they sleep a LOT. 

I'm wondering if any other moms had this issues? I'm getting scared for my precious little boy >.<

I would not take that as an acceptable answer and insist on being seen today for an ultrasound. That may be the reason for decreased movement, but it's not definite. And honestly 28 Wks seems a bit early to me for the movement to decrease that noticeably.

they are correct, the movements will decrease in the final weeks. 

you need to do movement counts, lay on your left side iwth your hands on your belly, and drink some ice cold water. 

if you still don't feel comfortable then you need to call the doctor and ask if you can go up to your l&d unit.

It is how my kids were.

 It is normal for them to slow down but if you feel like something isn't right, make sure you get in to be seen.
