I was wondering if the amount of activity you feel from your baby changes from time to time. I was feeling baby kick quite a bit (~5-10 times/day or more) last week and now it seems that for the last 3 days there is not much movement. I feel maybe 2-3 kicks/day and only if I lay on my back for a while and pay close attention. We had our scan on Friday and all looked good, baby's heart was beating away and he/she was sleeping but moving a little here and there. But I can't help but feel a little worried. I liked it way better when I felt lots of movement. Do you go through phases where baby is more active than others?
My baby's movement definitely changes a lot. Atnthe beginning of this week she was so sleepy and only moved a few times a day. The week before she moved all the time so I was worried. Then yesterday she kicked almost ALL day. It made me feel so much better to feel her moving a lot. The What to Expect book says that at this stage it still varies greatly. But like you, I like it a lot better when baby is more active!!
Mine doesn't seem to change, but I am more aware of it as I'm not only a month ahead of you but this is my fourth baby, so I know exactly what to look for. I wouldn't worry too much about it. Baby still has plenty of room to move around in there, so I doubt his movement has slowed as much as maybe you just don't feel it every time he does move. Don't worry, I'm sure everything's just fine!

Thanks Ladies, wouldn't you know it today baby was way more active again - at least I noticed more movement. I know I have an anterior placenta so maybe it depends on the position of baby. It could totally be that on busy days when I am distracted I just don't notice as much.
I have felt her here and there not not consistently at all. In fact, I feel like I get the doppler out way more often with this pg because her inactivity. I know she is fine but I just like that reassurance. On our U/S she wouldn't move at all unless I rolled over to my side or the tech prodded at her, so I assume she is just a calm, relaxed baby. Praying she stays that way through the newborn phase
