my baby seems to have more quiet times now. They dont have as much space to move around at this stage.

My midwife says that you should be feeling at least 10 movements a day. (one kick being one movement)

Try having a cold drink and maybe something sugary and laying on your side for a while - sometimes that gives baby a burst of energy. But if your still worried call the labour ward and they will pop a monitor on for you and check bubs is ok xxxxx

my baby is not really a kicker, she normally just makes ripples in my belly! how many movements is that? what about the pain in my groin, is that normal? im thinking its just beacause im carrying a big baby, at my last scan she was 6.14lbs that was a week ago so shes probably bigger now! is it also normal for my pelvis to ache and have slight period pains?

Always best to get checked out with any reduction of movement.. however, I had to go in for monitoring due to lack of movement on all 4 of my babies... all was fine, and they were born a day or 2 later! Could be the same for you, if you're having period pains too! As for your pelvis, thats completely normal, theres a lot of weight and pressure on it towards the end as baby gets lower and lower!
