    My LO has never really been much of a kicker, more of a puncher or wriggler. Now he is bigger my movements are much less but the midwife has always said that this is nothing to worry about. Some babies just dont move as much/in the same way.

    My LO has always kicked quite a lot, but by the third tri they have a lot less room to move around so you're less likely to feel kicks as they don't have the room to stretch out. Now I get movements, and see my tummy moving but they aren't huge kicks anymore.

    yes! I had exactly the same concerns. Baby just gets either too big to actually kick anymore or maybe is facing inwards so you can't feel them at the moment. As long as theres at least 10 movements a day its all fine. x

    My baba hasnt 'kicked' since about 25weeks more wriggles due to running out of room. Now he hardly even wriggles just wiggles his legs or arms etc as there aint no more room in there :) XxX

    If you're feeling the baby move I wouldn't worry. The kicks could be going in a direction where you are less sensitive because of the baby's position.

    yeah she mostly just wiggles around and drives me nuts :rofl:

    When she does kick, it always startles me and I'm like "oh my god!" outloud. She's guaranteed to kick though if I rest my arm on my bump

    Yep, i am finding the same recently. Almost like she is wriggling around and only n occasional kick / punch!

    Aslong as there's movement, i think we are ok!

    Same with me....I dont get many full-on kicks now, just that weird turning round feeling that makes me feel a bit sick! Oh, and hiccups galore....

    Anyone else feel like baby is blowing bubbles in there sometimes too?
