I'm worried that something is wrong with my son. His diaphragm isn't moving, and his movements decreased.
I haven't felt him kick all day. I'm 37 weeks..

If you are concerned, call your doctor. They are the only ones that can actually help with any advice or medical issues.

At 37 weeks, things are tight and will slow down. As long as he is moving, that's good. What reason to they give for the lack of movement in his diaphragm and was is the plan for delivery?

I've gotten ultrasounds where they monitor his breathing, and his diaphragm wasn't moving. I've felt him kick three times since I posted this.. which is still low for him.

How do you know his diaphragm is not moving? Eat something, drink some water and lay down on your left side. Count every movement for one hour, if you feel at least ten, fine. If not, wait one more hour and if you don't feel movements call your doctor or go to the ER
