Does the baby keep moving right up until you have it?

I have a question. My bump is in overdrive alot. Will bump stop moving just before labour or will it just keep on going right up until the end. I know that this has sort of been asked before but I would like to know how other peoples bumps have performed. Ta.

Mine slowed right down towards the end, I can't honestly remember how many movements I felt but it wasn't many - for about the last 2 weeks I think.

m i think mine eased off towards the end, probably a bit cramped in there

Mine kept thrashing round and hasn't stopped since. But he was born 2 weeks early by c-section.

Mine was born 3 days early - but the night before she was born (well the night before I went into labour) was the the MOST active that she ever was. She mut have been fighting to get out! (how appropriate for a little ninja )

In my experience yes.

Unfortunately not!!! I've bought myself a fresh pineapple and intend to eat nothing but pineapple and gaviscom tomorrow!!

All 3 of mine slowed down but at different times. DS1 about 1 -2 weeks before, DS2 about 4-5 days before and DS3 only2-3 days before. Fingers crossed Bunny. Go for a jog round the block (well waddle at least), have a hot curry , hot bath or sex. It worked for my mate and she was overdue 10 days. She did do all 4 tho

Beccaroll · 30/08/2003 10:04

I did the long walk, pineapple and curry last night but no joy!
