Does your baby go quiet before labor starts?

    I always here people saying how 24 hours or so before labor begins people notice that baby goes quiet..

    Is this true? Does it happen always?

    Good question, I everyone is different. You always here if movements stop call the midwife straight away. I have been having contractions etc for week and the midwife always asked if I can still feel the baby move and they seemed relieved when I say yes so I don't think reduced movement is a sign of labour.

    My lil man has been quiet, was at hospital Tuesday and they monitered him, he is perfectly fine but even on the monitor he was quiet.
    I've felt movement obviously but he's not as active as he usually is xx

    So lets hope there is some truth in it xx

    Mine has been quiet since last monday, was in for monitoring as i was worried and getting braxton hicks alot and terrible back pain. Shes all fine and healthy, still quiet so i dont personally think there is any truth in it, my cervix is also completely closed so i cant see her coming before next thursday when i'm being induced.
