    Is it just me or has anyone else experienced this?

    Baby doesnt seem to "kick" so much anymore, its more like squiggling & vibrating (does that make any sence?) I had my midwife appointment yesturday and told her my concern and she said it was perfectly normal, im assuming its because baby doesnt have as much room anymore?

    At times I will see my WHOLE belly move but its not accompanied by a kick, just a squiggle/squirming.

    if you think your curled up in a big bag, its gonna be quite difficult to give a good kick isnt it??

    Yeah, I have been reading about this as was worried about lack of kicks. I feel very small ones now and then but most of the time it's bigger movements now which make me go "ooooooooooooh" lol

    Wish I had this... Most of the time little miss just wriggles (a lot :roll:) but then she had a mad rush and will eject one of her feet out the side of my belly or up into my lung with the force of a small tactical nuclear strike. :x It weely weely hurts :cry:

    I think my baby is getting quite big - when the baby moves now it can really be quite painfull depending on which way she/he is lying

    Just your baby running out of room. As long as you feel some movements each day, even small ones it's fine.

    Yup, mine is head down, so I get the odd flutter in my pelvis (Hand?) and the odd kick in my ribs, but the weirdest happened the other night..I grabbed her leg and actually moved it :shock: I assume it was her leg cause it was under my ribs.. :think: I can never make it out..

    Mine has started doing the same. I just assumed that she was changing position because I'm in my last few weeks and I would agree theres less room in there... it is funny my belly will suddenly move, I can't stop thinking about the film Alien! :twisted:
