MOVEMENT DECREASE AT 32 WEEKS?

i AM 32 WEEKS AND HAVE NOTICED THE PAST 2 OR 3 DAYS THAT I AM NOT REALLY FEELING MY BABY MOVE. USUALLY HE IS FLUTTERING LIKE CRAZY AT DIFFERENT TIMES OF THE DAY, BUT HERE RECENTLY I MAY FEEL HIM KICK ONCE OR TWICE DURING THE DAY..... IS HE JUST GETTING TOO BIG IN THERE OR IS IT SOMETHING ELSE?

Let your doctor know because my little boy was the same way.  He wouldn't move all day while I was at work but once I settled down at home he would start moving.  I informed my doctor and now everytime I go to the doctor they hook me up to the fetal monitor to check his movements.  I'll be 36wks tomorrow.  X'zavior likes to move also when I drink something sweet or eat something cold like ice cream.  But please call your doctor to let him know so you don't worry all day about it or worry until your next appt.  Take care.

Hello, I am 33 weeks tomorrow and gets lots of movement, yet you are right to say that we are not to be surprised if movement slows down as the baby is running out of room.
However, last week I had a day where I felt absolutely NOTHING from getting up at 6am until about 2pm. I tried eating, drinking, giving baby a little poke, and nothing until he/she decided it was time to get up! I was petrified and checked it out with my midwife who says a good indicator to use is having at least 10 movements withing a 12 hour period, but not to be concerned if they have long periods of sleep, they can have lazy days.

Take care.

Its always a concern when a baby drastically changes its usual movement patterns, and always needs to be checked out with your health care provider.
