Noodles used to be constantly moving. Now, at 37+1 she is hardly moving at all. I'm presuming that this is because there just isn't room, if I drink coke she gets a bit of a wiggle on but generally there isn't much movement going on.
This is normal isn't it ? I am getting tonnes of Braxton Hicks

That's usually the case (although wasn't with C, he never stopped and still doesn't rarely!), but if you're worrying about it then please speak to your MW x

Yep, Zoe didn't stop either but then i have been told this is a big baby so maybe run out of space sooner. I'm not actually worried, but then started worrying that I should be worried.

I would get checked to be sure my mw always banged on about movements. My lo had a pattern so even though the movements felt different they were still there. Im sure all is fine but best to double check x

Right, ice cream and coke both consumed. If that doesn't get her wriggling then I'll ring the hospital.

Yes, best to get checked. Alex did this to me and as soon as I was hooked up to the monitor he started wriggling like a fish!! I felt very silly but the midwives were really kind and said I did the right thing coming in. Hope Noodles starts moving soon x

Best to get checked. altho with my first, he had a definite pattern of lots of movement from early morning to afternoon. one day I had no movements at all. tried hot drink, cold drink, sugar, etc and nothing. went to hospital and as soon as they put the monitor on started kicking me like crazy! hope baby starts moving about again soon xx
