baby not moving as much (40 weeks)

I am 40 weeks and 3 days. I do not feel my baby kick but I do feel rolling movements and lots of pressure. This is my fifth child. I have always had them a week or two early. So I am worried.

I worked in Ob/Gyn for 11 years and have 5 children all under 11 years. When in doubt or questions like this come about GO TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM and have a sonogram done or a NST..... CALL YOUR DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY this is not a game to play. Cant wait to hear what you did:) Good luck and happy delivery!!!

:( If you're still feeling movement I would generally say you're okay, but you've done this before and know the drill. When my first when over 40 weeks he didn't kick much either (he was also huge and there couldn't have been any room in there). If you feel like something is wrong, go with your gut. Have you called your doc or midwife hotline? they should have an on call nurse ready to talk to you over the phone and address your concerns.
