In brief: Yes

As you pass 30 to 34 weeks it is common to feel that the baby is moving less.
That is probably because the baby is big enough that the motions inside are restricted by the baby's size and the movements are just not as abrupt. If you feel baby moving ten or more times each day then you should not need to worry.
