Less Movement...

I'm 36 weeks & 3 days and I've noticed that my little guy is pushing and stretching less often. The most movement and activity is at night when I lay down to go to sleep, and even then it's less than before and his active periods don't last as long. I've heard that they slow down on the movement towards the end, but it's hard to justify what's 'enough movement' and what's 'too little.' I'm probably just freaking myself out, but I thought I'd share and see if anyone has experience the same thing :o)

 Don't worry mama, it's just getting cramped in there and too snug. As long as your feeling some movement at least 3 times a day all is probably well.

By the way I'm on my 7th baby. lol

I'm 37 weeks and am experiencing less movement too.

I saw my OB yesterday and she said that I should still be feeling movement but different movement than before.  The baby is much bigger and has less room to move so I'll be feeling more stretching and poking now.  She did say if there is a decrease to call her though because I should be feeling movement never the less.

It scares me a little because this is my first baby and it seems so subjective intead of objective to determine what is and what isnt normal.  How do I know???  This is my first time!

Ugh!
