There was a chart I had some hospitals do for movements, and you mark them down. I think it was based around 4 hr periods? I'd imagine there would be something similar via Dr google.
Do get checked if you feel different. I have an irritable cervix, so felt constant movement. At 37 wks 6 days, movements slowed. Then I felt none for 3 hrs, which for me was too long. Five minutes later I started bleeding heavily, and an ambulance was called. DS was born via emergency c-sec 1 hr later, and was on a respirator for some time.
I'm not trying to scare you (sorry!) but go by your instincts. I reckon that no matter how much we all differ on how much we felt/didn't feel movement, go by what YOU feel. If you don't feel right, your hospital will be more than happy to check you out
Good luck with your upcoming labour!

My baby went still and I went to hospital. On way to hospital I got ale thing to eat. By the time I parked , got to monitoring area spoke to midwife he was kicking up a storm . I hadn't eaten , was doing to much and needed a good feed.
Anytime they are quiet for too long do something to wake them up and if nothing go to hospital.

Spoke to mw today re this. Was told ice cold drink, especially sweet like apple juice, then lay down on left side. Count each movement individually, hopefully 10 in 2 hours.
Still worried? Go in, only takes 15 mins on ctg to make sure bubs is fine!
