Less Movement

I am 25w3d and the last 3-4 days my son hasn't been moving as much. He's still moving but just not as much as he usually does. The girl I work with said that he's probably just hitting a growth spirt like infants do so he's sleeping more. Is this true or should I be worried?

My son was that way too. He will start moving around again even more than before. I'm 32 weeks tomorrow and I feeling him moving all the time now. The only time I don't feel him moving is when i'm sleeping and for a few hours during the day when he is probably sleeping.

I don't really feel him during the day maybe 10 times total during the day. But when I get home from work and lay down usually I can watch him move for an hour. Especially when his daddy is home. Idk how he knows but he moves ten times more when my fiance is home. But I just get worried because he used to move so much.

I am almost 26 weeks and today is the first day I haven't really felt him. And it's making me nervous. However usually I am at home most of the day pretty low key laying around with the kids.  But the last couple days I have been up more and doing things I am hoping that's why I haven't really felt him. When I layed down ealier my belly looked a lot smaller. I'm hoping when I lay down for bed he is super active like normal cuz he has made me a nervous wreck. I like to think they are prepairing us to be nervous when they are born.

I usually feel my little girl move more whenim layimg down than any other time but my midwife & dr did say to inform them if I noticed a decreese in movement. Probably more so they can just be aware of it than a real worry but it couldnt hurt to call ur doc

Hey ladies...I wouldn't worry the same exact thigh happened to me when I was around 25 weeks to 26 weeks. He use to move all the time and he stoped moving so much I mean he would move but not as much as he use to so just to he safe I went to the er and they monitored him and put this strap on my stomach and they gave me a huge glass of apple juice and I pressed this button when he would move and they monitored his heartbeat and she said he had a good strong heartbeat and he stared moving a lot after I drank that apple jucie. So he was fine she also said he was sleeping when I came in. So he's probably just having lazy days and there growing and running out of room. But if ur worried drink a huge glass of ice cold water or apple jucie then lay on ur left side and he should start moving if not I'd get checked. But I'm almost 30 weeks now and hes moving a lot more now but even some days he gets lazy and I worry .its just that motherly instinct.hehe. Also the doctor says if u feel a flutter,or him move,or kick that counts as a movement :) so I'm sure he's fine hun
