    Default Baby not moving as much at 40 weeks

    I am 40+1 today and I don't think I have felt the baby move today.
    I have been sitting down for the last hour and have had a cold drink.
    Little worried!

    I've heard they move less close to due date as there is less room in there. Try lying on your side for a while. I feel my baby move a lot more when I'm on my side compared to when I'm sitting. If you still can't feel anything is be calling the hospital
    I'm sure everything is fine though... Maybe baby is just a bit tired today

    My baby has days like that. I'm 37 weeks. I think some days she's just needs more rest. Other days I wish she would stop moving so much! Haha. Just duck up to the hospital if you're worried, they'll only be too happy to reassure you.

    If baby hasn't moved in 2 hrs of you concentrating on it, or even if you haven't had as much movement as is normal, call the hospital and go in for a check.

    If you're worried at it's not babies normal pattern then get checked out. From what I understand from following the count the kicks Facebook page baby slowing down movements towards the end of pregnancy is not considered normal.

    I would call the maternity ward amd talk to the midwifes. They may want to do some monitoring on you, even just for peace of mind.

    Default Baby not moving as much at 40 weeks

    Have something sugary to eat, last summer I couldn't feel my bub at 40 weeks and went in and got monitored. They gave me a warm meal, biscuits and jelly along with a cold drink and that got her almost kicking out of my stomach!

    The heat doesn't help either.

    I would go to hospital. I was told that movements don't slow down. If anything my dd movements increased towards the end
