im 39 weeks today and the last few days ive noticed less movement...shes still moving, just alot less often and the kicks are not nearly as strong. Ive been having strong BH contractions for months but now havent felt any in a few days at all. im starting to get a little worried is all. we are under a state of emergency due to ice and snow and cant really get anywhere. we dont have a car right now and plus the drs office been closed for a few days (like everything else) and SOs grandma wont come get us (and the roads so bad she probably wouldnt make it here) and the only place she could take me would be to the nearest hospital and i would hate do look crazy showing up in the ER for what could be considered nothing

Call the hospital and speak to the on call doctor.
Try drinking ice cold water or juice and lay on your side.
At this stage baby is getting a bit cramped up.

If you have to call for an ambulance and go.

Have you been doing kick counts? You say she is still moving, just not as much. It's normal for them to move less or for their movements to change as they run out of room. I would drink something and lay down and see if you feel 6-10 movements in an hour, and if not call and see if you should be seen in L&D!

Call L&D and find out how many kicks you are supposed to count in an hour... then see if you get to that number. If not, I would find a way to get in and be seen. I'd rather the be the crazy person showing up being told baby is fine, then the person not worried and having something be wrong.

I was always told 10 kicks in an hour. If you don't get 10, drink juice or something very cold then keep counting for another hour and see if you get to the 10 kicks. If not you will need to go in.

its not 6 to 10 every hour but its also day time. she has ALWAYS been less active during the day and amps up about 1am for a good few hours. the intensity of the kicks has just changed so drastically. its gone from swift had jabs to more soft pressing that you wouldnt really consider uncomfortable

 i know that after you eat a meal lay on your side and count kicks and if you dont get 10 in hr drink glass of water/juice and do it again. if you dont get 10 in hr call your dr or L&D

I'd you go into labor how are you going to get there? Sometimes the baby slow down as they get ready for labor.
