Thanks for that, my mil tried telling me the other day that baby wasn't ready to come yet because I was still feeling kicks/wriggles, I thought it was a strange thing to say as baby should always be active shouldn't it!? X
I was told their movements do slow down, so when I woke on my due date and didn't feel any movement for about 4 hours, I thought it was a 'good sign'.
I was in labour, but my baby wasn't happy. As soon as I got to hospital and mentioned the lack of movement to my midwife, they were all a bit worried. I was strapped up to every monitor they had, I had lots of very awful tests done on me and my unborn baby. I then had to have an emergency c section. My daughter was in distress and very nearly died.
I thought she was fine because I was so far along, it was my due date etc. This isn't always the case!
I'd strongly recommend getting in touch with your midwife if you're ever worried about movement, whether you're 30 weeks or 42 weeks. Babies movements will feel 'different' as the baby runs out of room, but you should feel baby less/not at all.
Thanks for all the comments Ladies,
As someone else commented, I was only asking as have been told that babys movements slow down and he will have a "quiet period" as hes getting ready.
He is still very wriggly tho and still get a foot poking out!!
