    Default 22 weeks and less fetal movement?

    as the title states.......im beginning to wonder if it's normal?
    Usually feel a very active fella in there but the last week or so he's calmed down to only the odd sporadic punch here or there. Some nights i cant feel anything whe he's "usually" most active.
    My placenta is positioned at the front so im aware it's cusioning his movement but why did i feel everything a few week back?
    I know i should be concerent about FM untill 28 weeks but im just so used to feeling him move and now i dont feel him as much.

    He's probably moving less because he's running out of room as he gets bigger.

    Don't stress, but if you are worried, call your maternity ward or gp for assurance or a check up

    I had an anterior placenta with my last although more to one side. DS legs happened to be on that side so over time I felt less as I had to wait for him to be big enough to feel him wriggle or squirm or scrape his top elbow a whole lot on the side that didn't have the placenta. I really missed out on a lot for a long and definitely different to those around me who had posterior placenta.

    He is probably just in a different position than before so your placenta is now in the way. As long as you're still feeling some movement I wouldn't worry just yet

    thanks girls, i actually felt a whole heap of movement late last night. Except it felt like he was kicking me in the vajayjay ?!?! All the movement is felt really low and i cant feel anything up top near my belly button. I guess thats where the placenta is?
    Cant feel movemnt on the outside either. Kinda feel like DH is missing out! It's so different from DD's pregnancy - DH and i felt eveything from 16 weeks!
