BTDT moms..did you experience this before going into labor??

Did your baby get siginificantly quieter before labor? I have only felt extremely slight movement today and I feel different, kind of less "packed in there."

Did anyone else experience this before going into labor? TIA

Not necessarily right before labor but the last few weeks I think there was less movement just b/c there is less room for the baby to move.

drink something with sugar in it, lie down and try to feel movement. you should be able to feel the baby move at least 6 times in one hour. if not call the doctor, sometimes at the end the fluid gets low... ect... and it's time for the baby to come out!

I did not. My DD was super crazy on the inside right to the very end and still at 11 mos. old. I have heard that it's common though.

I experienced this weeks before I gave birth. For that reason they had me going three times a week for stress tests which was stressing me out more. They also said Roman was measuring very small meanwhile he was 7lb 15oz. DoctorsChat Icon

Excellent advice.

Not as much movement as the month prior, but the kick test was still an indicator that things were going well.
