    Default 39 weeks and baby not moving much?

    I am 39+3 today anf i have noticed for the past week that theres less fetal movement. Is that normal? She used to move a LOT! But now she hardly moves or her movements are very small not like before huge moves. I am going to give my doctor a call tomorrow but just wondering if anyone else experience the same?
    Thanks

    Call the hospital now and go in for a CTG and get everything checked out ASAP. Tomorrow could be too late.....

    At this stage your baby is in birth position, so they say when the head is engaged in the pelvis the baby is more restricted meaning it will be moving less, and of course it has a lot less room. I'd bring it up with your dr for piece of mind, but I think it's fairly normal.
    My DD was also lazy towards the end, DSwas still quite active though.

    There is no reduction in the frequency of fetal movements in the late third trimester. I would recommend getting it checked out tonight rather than waiting especially as its been going on for a week.

    Any time you experience reduced fetal movements you should always get it checked out ASAP by your doctor/midwife.
