Baby is running out of room in there. If you're super concerned drink some soda or cold juice, lay on your left side and count kicks for an hour.

As long as baby is moving you should be fine. You are due in a few weeks, there is not a lot of room for baby to go. Just wait until tomorrow and bring it up to the dr. They may monitor you some just to make sure baby is doing good. But really, your baby has no room to move really move anymore. Except to move out. LOL!

Ave you drank cold water and laid on your left side? Or sugary drinks? Also, if your worried call the doc.!

Do your kick counts .... If baby fails then go to the hospital to get checked out

I know it can be very concerning but towards the end the movements can decrease a lot due to the baby running out of room, as long as you are feeling baby move at some point during the day, then you should be fine. If you're really wanting to see if you can get baby moving, drink something cold and lay on your side. For me what worked really well was pushing on my belly to the side (since all three pregnancies my kids decided to be on one side only) so I would push on them like trying to move them to the other side and that would usually get them kicking.
