    Today's my due date and apart from a couple of well placed kicks, my little boy has gone very quiet...

    Does anyone have any idea if the rumours are true and babies go quiet before they come out to say hello? Or is it all just a little bit of wishful thinking :p

    Can't remember exactly with dd, but I think she was very very active, and just before labour began, went quieter.
    Happy due date-hope you get your baby soon

    They can do, but you should still feel your 10 movements a day or ring the mw. I guess when they drop down low theres less wriggling going on!!!

    I don't rememebr noticing mine go quiet, but then mine only engaged after labour started both times, so maybe thats why!

    I know it's mostly just hope rather than good judgement but a lady can still hope haha

    I don't remember my last two moving much on the day of labour. And this one has quietened down alot apart from the odd wiggle or foot pressing out.

    So fingers crossed it's a sign for both of us!
