I am 34 weeks pregnant and have felt a difference in my baby's movements - they are definitely a lot weaker and few and far between - my stomach also seems to feel softer - feels more like a fat tummy than a pregnant one. I had a stillborn baby last year so my doctor is monitoring me quite closely... I see him twice a week where he checks her for growth, amniotic fluid, umbilical cord flow, the flow in her brain and whether she is making any breathing movements - I also go for a nst three times a week - he always seems quite happy with these as they are reactive... I would like to know whether I can rely on these tests and stop stressing about her actual movements (I also have an anterior placenta which obviously does buffer the movement to a certain extent)... I'm petrified ....

The movements do change later in pregnancy as there is less space to move. The tests should tell if there is a problem.
