Ok so I have had decrease fetal movement today. Usually he kicks around 7 times an hour, but today its only been about that all day. Im 34 weeks and was already tested for Pre-eclampsia last week and everything was fine. Should I go to L&D just to get him checked out and make sure everything is ok?

He may just be getting to big to have as much  movement as you were used to before...but if you are concerned that something is wrong you should get checked.  I had the same thing in the end of my pregnancy with not feeling him move as much but everything was normal.

I am 36 weeks and i do not feel my LO alot anymore either, it may be because he is running out of room? I would call your DR before i'd rush to L&D.

Have you done the standard

drink a glass of COLD juice. Lay down in a quiet dark room o your left side and count kicks for 1 hour or 10 kicks, whichever is first?

If you don't have your kicks, then call your OB...

...also how did they "test" for Pre-E? There is no single test for Pre-E!!!!!! Not only that, but you do realize that Pre-E can come in within an HOUR... AND that Pre-E has nothing to do with fetal movement? Did your OB leade you to believe you are free of Pre-E? because I would get a new OB.

No they did blood work and it was all fine and a 24 hour urnine sample, it was free of protein. And my blood pressure went down right away. It was wasn't my midwife that told me it was a different one because mine was busy with a c-section at the time. I have done all of that and I am a high risk already for having a miscarriage thats the only reason I am asking for advice.

I'm not alot of help bc this is my first pregnancy and I'm 38 weeks but if you're still feeling your baby move I wouldn't be worried at all. My little boy doesn't move near as much because he's running out of room in there. But he'll move a few times throughout the day and as long as you're feeling some type of movement I wouldn't be worried. Now if you start feeling no movement in the next few days I would definately contact your doctor asap.

Your baby is just probably lacking space to move. He is bigger now and has no room in that tummy to move. If it keeps up I would tell the dr about it and they may do a non stress test on you to make sure all is ok and make sure nothing else is out of the norm or you should go to L&D.
