Does anyone's elses little one have days where it wriggles and kicks loads then the day after its quieter and not as giddy? i know at this stage baby has its own pattern for movements but the quiet days freek me out, a couple of times iv nearly called labour ward to get checked out.

I know movement slows down towards the end due to baby running out of room, but if your ever worried then just call them. I think all babies are different so it seems fair that they may have quieter days and busier days x

While pg with dd I had a day where I didnt feel her move for 12 hours straight, I cant remember exactly how far along I was but I know I was past 30 weeks. I went to the hospital and they confimed everything was fine, she was just having a sleepy day! Sure enough the moment I went to bed she woke up and started prodding and poking me with her elbows and kicking dh in the back. Im sure everythings fine honey but if you're EVER worried, please do go abd get yourself checked out as thats what they're there for and its best to put your mind at ease xx

during my first pg i actually went to the hospital once (around 29 weeks) because i had also not felt the baby all day. the scan confirmed all was fine and the sonographer there told me that as long as you feel the baby move, not to be too concerned about exactly how often or strong the kicks are. babies have quieter days and quite often when youre having a busy day, youll pay less attention to the movement there is. im 29 weeks today with number 2 and in general this baby is less active than my son was and i have days where i dont consciously feel anything until evening as im busy with my toddler all day. other times its doing a jive in there and is actually uncomfortable with all the kicking and wriggling.
having said that, i agree with the others, if you are truly concerned always get checked out x

ps often the position of the baby will also make movements more or less noticeable.

Yes, absolutely. I have days when baba is kicking like he's about to break free and other days I have to sit very still and wait to feel a tiny movement to show he's ok. It's the worst feeling when you think "I've not felt a wriggle all day...!"
Defo get anything checked that you're worried about tho x
