Yep, I definitely would feel less movement when I was busy and moving around. I wondered if it was because the baby was actually moving less, or if I just noticed it less. Probably a little bit of both. And they get to a point where they develop sleep/awake patterns too.
There is such a huge difference between 26 and 28 weeks. I think it's one of the most changing periods of the pregnancy. You should be high-fiving Julia after each day that passes. I also focused on only the immediate goal ahead... it kept me sane. And I had good BP throughout, which was a daily encouragement, because you can't have pre-e with good blood pressure. So it was like, yay, we don't have that battle to deal with today. Then before we knew it, we were full term.
Keep us posted!
