Has anyone noticed that their little has started to slow down some in the last days?

Today he was moving slower than yesterday.

Its NORMAL for movements to be more wiggly and twisting and bigger yet slower movements (at least for me) instead of the fast vigorous kicks and punches and somersaults (although you may still feel kicks and punches from time to time) etc..because there's not much room in there anymore.

I have books and stuff and I ask my Dr all these questions, I was just asking people if they are noticing it too.

I was saying that because you say you're worried alot. Like i said, sit after you eat and see what happens. Yes babies are different from day to day sometimes. Maybe your baby is just tired today and napping lots.

you shouldn't worry!!! :) as the baby gets bigger there's less room to move around as freely so their movements may start to slow down. some babies do and some don't. it's all normal!

Don't worry too much. I have noticed Aaron is getting quieter too. But like PP said, its just the fact that the baby is taking up a lot of room in the uterus. And as long as you still feel the baby move around every once in awhile you will be fine.

I am ever so thankful that the doctors have not pulled out the kickcounts yet.... *smile* I am tempted to ask why but I am afraid that they just forgot and asking might cause them to ask for

That is exactly wht happens with me. I get so wrapped up in wht i am doing i don't notice movements or lack of them.

Then it sends off tht panic feeling.
