I'm 27 weeks (+1 day) and last week she kept me entertained for hours! I have still been feeling her regularly but nowhere near as much/as hard as last week, which she was at her most active. I'm wondering if it's anything to do with size now... Maybe there's not as much room in there for her now, her kicks just aren't as violent
My baby really slowed down as well. I think as long as you have 10 movements a day then its ok. But you can ring maternity ward if you are worried and the hook you up to some machines to double check all is well. Thats what I did and they scanned me as well.
Im not as far gone as you but ive noticed the same the last few days and id put it down to him having a growth spurt...they do say if youbare concerned about movement from 27 weeks onwards then to let your mw know but im sure your baby is having a growth spurt also..
I know from last time my DS would have quiet days but movements were still very noticable up to the end and my son was 9lb born so not a tiny baby so room would have been tight lol xx
Little madam got a case of hiccups as soon as I posted this... She's found (what feels like) my bowel area again too! Think it's just a tight squeeze now, I'm not worried because she is moving often but I was wondering if it was normal to slow down at this stage. Thanks, ladies!
That's interesting - my midwife wrote on the week 30 page of my NHS book that baby will move pretty much as often, but less violently, just like you said, because he/she has less room, and it's the decrease in frequency that is a possible concern. I bet the 3rd tri ladies have more experience with this sort of thing, maybe cross post there and see if you can get their stories?
