Baby Movement Near End

Hi there, I am just on 37 weeks and wondered what kind of movements everyone else is feeling. Mine are like little thuds and light pushing or poking. No big kicks or anything. What about you?

39 weeks here and while the little one occasionally gets in a good thump, typically her movements can be likened to someone moving/changing position underneath a blanket - kind of a shifting, stretching feeling. It always feels strange when she decides to stretch out those legs of hers; eep - feels like she's going to poke right through some days! And she's feeling weightier, so it seems that even after I've gone to the bathroom I still feel like I have to go! (I won't miss that after she's born, believe me!) But yes, these movements are nothing like the standard kicks I was getting back in the second trimester.

Ditto to what Erica says. Exactly the same for me. However, sometimes I do get the occasional heavy punch or kick but they are now far and few in between...but there is still TONS of movement for me and I'm now 41.5 weeks, being induced tomorrow.

Thanks, after reading your descriptions I feel a bit better. I am probably being induced too, as he is very big. Haven't decided yet, we have a few days left to decide. Good luck Jenny!
