so i just wanted to know if everyones baby was moving alot less closing in to the last weeks of their pregnancy...
my little baby sephen would move alot just not too long ago.. and all of a sudden these past 2 weks hes moving less and less
i was getting concerned and googled it(yes i'm one of the few ladies that uses google)and it said it was because of how big hes getting he has less space to move...
but its too weird he wont move that much at all..
just wanted to know if anyone else noticed this.

He's probably running out of room in there.

Same thing happened to me but if it becomes to low on moverment you will need to get a NST so they can make sure baby is ok . It is normal since there is not as much room but just keep watch mama. Good Luck :)

mine does...my mom asked me if he wasnt moving as much and i said yes he's moving as much as he always did, just not strong kicks...but the next day and ever since then he hasnt moved nearly as much. she said they slow down the closer you get to going into labor, and yes they do start to run out of room too, but my dr. said you should still get 10 kicks an hour and if you don't go get monitored. the only reason why i havent been monitored is because i know he's still moving, my next appt is just a couple days away, and i HATE L&D, so i'm only going back when i know i have to. and i don't feel like its a necessity.

I am not trying to scare you at all mama but because I went thru itI know wut your thinking. My son was not moving as much so every Thur. I had to go to the ER to get a NST & US to make sure he passes, well I had to deliver him at 36wks, not my choice at all it was the dr.'s orders. We all thought because I was getting closer that he was just tierd & relaxed but as she told me they didn't wanna take any chances, so of course I let them induce me. Mylil Pnutweighed in at 4pds 15.4 oz 18 3/4 in. & was healthy as can be is sill growing great he is now 5pds. 11oz 20in. :)
