    When I was 37 weeks DS hadn't changed in his movements and didnt until he was born.. he was a wriggler right up until I went into labour. Many babies movements slow down around this time but then some dont

    I've noticed bubs has slowed down in the last day or two, but she still moves quite a bit. She's also getting hiccups a lot lately!

    The midwives say as long as you get 10 clear movements a day, that's fine. If you think you have less than 10, maybe go and get checked for your piece of mind.

    I'm almost 38 weeks and bub seems to have gotten more wriggly than normal and I can feel her hiccups as I am writing this <3 she gets them around the same time every night

    Each bub is different though, if you are concerned just lay back with a nice icy cold glass of water and see of you notice some movement after you've had a drink. I'm sure you'll fell some wriggling but if you're not sure just let your midwife/OB know.

    I read in one of my pregnancy books, (or was it my pregnancy app?), that some mums notice a decrease in movement right before labour.

    If that's true, I hope you're ready, bags packed and all.
