I'm at the midwife later so going to ask about this but anyone else finding baby more active at night this late in pregnancy? All the movements are causing Braxton Hicks too so I'm exhausted hmm
Not to mention the flipping hiccups!!

I'm 37+4 today too and have noticed more hiccups, movement and braxton hicks than usual in the last few days (not overnight though to be fair) - but don't think that's unusual at this stage?

Will see what the midwife says. All night wiggles and hiccups are leaving me exhausted!

That's normal... Usually baby is more awake when you go to bed (they don't have night/day likewise when they are newborn) or you notice it more when you're still. It's likely you can feel more as baby is bigger and has less room now. Braxton Hicks are normal too (I get them really early at 16wks) It's nothing to worry about.

If your baby STOPS moving however... then you should contact the midwife if it's concerning.
