I actually believed this myth with my 1st baby and didnt report reduced movement, which when monitored ended up being concerning and led to delivery.

Any change in movement patterns should be reported girls, always

Hope youv'e all got happy wriggly babies xxxxx
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!

You have made my day with this post!! My heart sinks everytime i see someone say that a babys movements slow or stop before labour because is is not true!!

I wish all MWs were like you.

THANK YOU

I've had a few people ask me 'is he still moving?' and when I've replies that he is they've said 'oh, he'll be a while yet then'. I asked my mw and she said the same as My bump above that if there was any decrease that I should call the hospital right away x
