    I'd be heading in to be checked also. A friend had an awful outcome because she believed it 'normal' for babies to slow before labour. Always better to be safe than sorry

    Definitely go in or call pregnancy assessment for monitoring if bub's movements aren't the same as usual. I reported lack of movement to my OB at 37 weeks and ended up having a c-section the next day. You would never forgive yourself if you didn't get checked out and something went wrong. If for no other reason, go and get some reassurance.

    Hope all is well. Let us know how you go!

    Definitely this. I was told that's a myth and that if I was ever worried then to pop in for a check.

    This was me at 37+6. Bub was emergency csec the next morning and spent 5 days in NICU cause she had almost bled out in utero.

    Default Baby not moving as much at 40 weeks

    This.

    So many times I was told that bubs slow down and don't kick as much at the end of pregnancies so I didn't worry that my sons movements had slowed. He passed away at 39wks due to inter uterine growth restriction and we didn't even know he had it. He was getting weaker and weaker and I had no idea. 😢

    Please don't tell mums that movements slow down if they are noticing a change then tell them to get checked out.

    I am so sorry for your loss
    The midwives said he's all good and there's nothing to worry about. But thank you for sharing your story!
