I know the rule of thumb is 10+ moves from baby during a 10-12 hour period. The best advice is to contact the midwife or triage unit.
But... before I make any calls I thought I'd ask those that have had babies before if a slightly reduced sensation of movement os likely due to lack of space and baby getting a bit cramped. I'm 37.5 weeks and although Squiggly does indeed give me quite the hoofing something feels different. Less frequent for sure but my gut says she is fine but my over cautious over thinking head is curious about the subtle changes. Do babies movements decrease with their ever shrinking space. I always feel so overjoyed by her somewhat painful movements when she decides to go on one but she does spend quite a lot of time having long periods of snoozing. Whenever I've contacted triage and been monitored Squiggly has a very strong heartbeat and suddenly decides to move around heaps!
I'm also feeling odd sensations really low down in my pubic area, like a great pressure and get period pains, not intermittent but lasting anywhere from 20 mins to a few hours. What is that? My tummy is tight and hard most of the time so I don't think it's braxton hicks, is it Squiggly just positioning herself? I'm seeing the midwife tomorrow so I'll ask these questions then but in the meantime would love the more experienced woman's view!
Hope you're all well and enjoying your bank holiday weekend.
