Just wondering ??

Hi all , does anyone know if its normal for baby to sort of slow down with regards to movemment , at some stages of pregnancy .I am 24 weeks 3 days , i started to feel my little one at around 21 weeks , there would be little bursts of kicking all throughout the day when i myself slowed down . (if im moving around and busy i generally dont feel anything ) ,but in the last 3 days or so , the movement has decreased quite a bit , ive probably felt him/her about 6 or 7 single times today . Although the actual kicks themselves do feel a lot stronger when they happen , i can actually feel my bladder being kicked or pushed on !!! I did read somewhere that as they get bigger , they can't tumble and somersault as much , could this be why i dont feel as much , or is this completely normal ?? I could call my midwife tomorrow but i do like to hear personal experiences first , just in case im being totally paranoid !!!! thanks xx

i posted about this a few days ago. I'm 23wks and feel less movement in the past couple days then I did a wk or two ago. Everyone says it's fine and not to worry. Movement doesn't become regular till 28wks and at that time they say do kick counts. Unless you completely go a day or so without movement I wouldn't worry, even though I know it's hard.

They still have quite a bit of room at that point. I'm 30 weeks (on Sunday) and I am feeling LOTS of strong movement and rolling and punching all over. But there are times when he will go a few days or so without much movement and I think it's when they're going through a growth spurt. If you're still feeling movement then I wouldn't worry. These little ones already give us so much worry!!
