    Im 37 and a half weeks and have noticed bubs movements are not as frequent or as strong anymore. I'm still getting at least 10 over a day. I know bubs will have less space to move around. Is this normal?xx

    mine tends to wriggle and twist more just now rather the kicks I had before - but i was kinda assuming that as LO gets bigger even this will stop as much - simply because there's not the same amount of room as before.

    Also if your at 37 weeks, could your LO be settling into a positition ready for birth - so that would reduce the movements as well. Just a thought.

    I noticed today I got a lot less movements to the point I had coffee and cake to get her to move - I am sure it is normal but it does getting worrying at times :)
