Fetal movement at 39 weeks? Mommyof2B 2 kids; Torrance, California 2771 posts
21st Jul

Did it decreased a lot? When I hit my 39 weeks my baby's movement had die down so much it almost had me worry. If he does move or punch it's faint. He's pretty quiet this past 3 days. My next appointment is not till Friday.

No I don't because it usually doesn't work.

Doesn't work? 10 kicks within an hour? How does that not work???

When I used to do them he only have like 5 counts in an hour and was always active. I never been over my 39 weeks before so I don't know how much of a decreased movement they would have.

my ob said that your baby should always make at least 10 movements in two hours during their active time. if not, then to get checked.

I'm 39 weeks and some change and Gabby has not stopped moving. She isn't moving in the same way as she was a couple weeks ago, more wiggles now but she is still moving.

You need to be checked asap and yes take your three year old along. They will watch him or her. Why dont you have anyone who could help you or go along? I hope you have a good support network and they are all just pre-occupied at the moment. Good luck to you!
