    Default Movement close to birth

    Have you noticed a decline in movement in the days leading up to labour or has it increased/stayed the same? Just curious??

    That is reassuring - I was due yesterday and baby had been soooo active it's keeping me awake! Glad to hear it doesn't necessarily mean I'll be pregnant for 100more years lol

    Katelyn was a monkey through labour. I felt sometimes like she was fighting against contractions. Seeing as she hated being touched or moved or even me just shifting my weight after she was born and for a few weeks after I'm sure she probably was and found labour really uncomfortable.

    I'm 40+2 and the movement has been consistent for at least a month or so.

    My midwife said I should be able to tell the patterns of the movement now (ie. his awake and sleep time) and look out for at least 10 movements while he's awake, and that movement should continue during labour.

    Movement should not be declining in the later stages of pregnancy. It may feel a bit different, but the number/activity of movements should not decrease. If it's absent/declined, call your doctor/midwife now and get baby checked out
