Yes when you become further it's more cramped and the baby will sleep more. But if it's only a couple times a day i would definitely call your doctor. Baby could be distressed
My doctor told me its not ok if the baby moves less
I'm 35 weeks. My girl seemed like she was having less movements, but after doing the kick counts I realized she is just not hitting me as hard. I can still feel her moving just not hitting as much. It is true that babies have less room but they should be moving just as much as we go along.
Get any reduced movements checked out. Chances are all is well but it is also a really good indication that something could be wrong.
They are a charity based in the UK trying to reduce the number of stillborns by re educating women on normal fetal movement, how to count kicks, why you shouldn't rely on 10 kicks etc.
Definitely get it checked out. Whenever in doubt call your doctor.
I actually went to the hospital last night because I hadn't felt my baby move since 10pm the night before. Thank God everything turned out okay but the nurse and Dr's said he should be moving and it is important to make sure the umbilical cord wasn't around his neck, that his heartbeat and blood pressure are stable. Which it was actually my BP that wad really high! It was really scary but hearing his heart and knowing he was okay was a great ease of mind. They did remind me that the movements won't be as hard but that it may feel more like flutters again but that he should still be active. I definitely believe to follow your instincts and if something doesn't feel right go get checked. Better to be safe with our little miracle than to risk anything!! Best of luck with everything!
