Hi girls I am finding that bubs is a bit quiet last couple of days but had been really active before. So wondering do you all get quiet days too, mine seem to follow a very active days, also how oftern in the day would you feel the baby move, some days I feel really strong and then other much softer. Also, I find alot of the movement are like rolling or wiggling more than kicks, does this change or is it the same from now on? i can see my tummy move like a wave as baby rolls. Just wondering what the normal kind of pattern is thanks
