    Default Baby movement meaning labour not close

    Hi there,
    My bubs is still moving around heaps, and many people are telling me that this means she is comfy and not coming out anytime soon, cause the movements slow down prior to labour starting.



    Has anyone experienced this? Or is just another old wives tale?

    I know with Chelsea the 2 days prior to her birth she 'stopped' moving...so was monitored and she was actually moving but only small amounts.

    Midwifes told me they slow down in prep for birth and build up their energy....LOL.

    No one is the same at all. Everyone seems to forget this.

    Your baby may just keep dancing on your liver until she pops her head out.

    Wouldn't uniformity be nice?????

    My obs says this is an old wives tale and can be a dangerous one. He's said if I notice a significant decrease in movement I'm to go to the delivery suite that night for monitoring.
