    Default 37 weeks and bub's movement...

    Wondering what your bub's movement was like from 36 weeks onwards?
    Im 37 weeks and have noticed a drop in movement.
    I realise he's prob out of room. I can count 10 movemnts in a day (by just going about my normal activities) but when i lay down and actually focus on his movement and try the 10 movements in 10mins (along with drinking juice, wiggling my belly ect), it seems to take ages and then i only get a couple jabs or i see a limb poke out.

    I dont have a midwife appt till late next week. Id really like some reassurance though...
    Is it normal for this less movement late in pregnancy?

    Yes thats normal. I'm 36+3 and his movements have slowed down a lot. I still get a few very active periods during the day but overall he's much quieter.

    Movement slowed down for me to but if you are worried get it checked out or ring your midwife. They won't mind.

    I see a specialist ob, and discussed with him the fact that babys movements seem to have decreased in number while increasing in intensity - he said that is normal, and checked the babys heartbeat. Good strong and healthy heartbeat, and right after that an even stronger kick!!
    I noticed with prior pregnancies as well that its a matter of where the placenta sits in relation to where the baby likes to jab and kick.

    I'm 36+3 and have found the same thing. Her movements have more than halfed... I had my 36week appt at hosp on fri n told dr my concern, they have organised an ultrasound for this coming week. Apparently if u are concerned and tell them they like to do a scan to make u feel at ease and just check everything out, this is at gold coast hosp. I was completely shocked! And it's bulk billed.

    Default 37 weeks and bub's movement...

    I am 37+3 with twins - so we haven't had room to move for a while! My two are still relatively active in the evening, but not in the morning. Have you noticed a change in pattern?

    I have also been having ctg monitoring a couple of times per week - where they trace bubbas heartbeat ad movements. To get them wiggling, the midwife recommended drinking something ice cold and sugary, chewing ice, lying on my left side and eating a big meal.

    If in doubt, give them a call - better to be safe than sorry.

    If you are worried get checked.

    My dd sometimes only seemed to move a couple of times a day andit turned out we had issues with placenta function and reduced fluid so had to be induced early.

    Always worth checking good luck

    My ob & midwife said to ring and go for a check anytime, they would rather do that than have worried mummy.
