baby movement

Ok so im 38 weeks and my mom is telling me that the day I go into labor I won't feel the baby move that day. I am just wondering if that just happened to her or if anyone else says the same thing. I have noticed a decrease in movement, sometimes she won't move all day until late at night and that is only for a few minutes. Should I be worried?

I felt my son move during labor, but don't worry too much about it since they will be monitoring the baby until the baby is delivered. Some people don't feel the baby move because they are just concerened about the contractions. Also most babies wont move that much during their last few weeks left in the womb because they don't have much space, but as long as you can feel her, you'll be fine.

some women say they don't feel the bay move just before labour begins ! i didn't feel my son that day they say they are resting and getting ready for the birthing process ! but EmsMom07 is right don't be concerned they will be montiorring u and the baby durring labour. i am gonna suggest something though instead of having those bands around ur belly to listen for the baby because they are restricting and uncomfortable ask them to use a scalp clip on the baby its an internal monitor that clips on to alittle piece of skin on the babies scalp and they listen to the heart rate that way . i had it with my son and i will be asking for it when i have my daughter! it is so much better and it does not leave a mark or hurt the baby in anyway , i couldn't even tell were it had been on my son! good luck

i felt my daughter only occasionally during labor, but the day i went into labor she was very active.
anytime there is a decrease in movement, especially at this point during your pregnancy, it is very important that you let your doctor know. your baby could be in distress. not to scare you, but that is why most doctors suggest regular kick counts. she should also be asking you about your baby's movement at every appointment. my doctor / a nurse did from about 24 / 26 weeks on almost if not everytime i think.
inform your doctor, just to be safe. :) your baby does run out of room, but you should still feel 10 movements in 2 hours. i'll pray for you!!
