  • It's still early in the day. I'd give it untill after dinner, and if still no movement then I'd call the doctor.
    There are somedays my baby doesn't move all day untill I lie down to goto bed and then she goes nuts.

  • I would suggest trying to lay down for a while, or even just sit. A lot of times I do not notice my baby moving until I sit down to relax at night because my movement during the day rocks him/her to sleep. Try not to worry too much, and if after you sit for an extended period of time you still do not feel movement, then you should call your doctor.
    Best of luck!

  • Also remember that you are only 24 weeks along, and just because you don't feel baby doesn't mean that he isn't moving. At that age they are still really small.

  • I have been sitting since i got up 2 hours ago and nothing i've tried laying water, food, something sweet nothing. im not allowed to move around much i do though iwas on bed rest for 3 weeks because of low amniotic fluid, and i have more movement abilities but now i don't feel him move. Also my BF is alittle over protected he don't want me moving around at all hardly because he don't want the baby to get hurt. Which is a big change for me because he has never been like this maybe he is getting over himself.


    My doctor said i should feel him everyday a few times atleast because since of the low fluid and all they have to monitor me more. I have two appointments a week to make sure im doing okay and te baby is to.

  • you know what i didn't post this for someone who don't want to be known to critize me and for one its not a doctors appoinment its an ultrasound and they won't tell me anything anways even if i do ask. So instead of bashing on me for trying to get answers that i don't get at my hospital don't post one here then. JUST PASS BY OR SOMETHING I DON'T NEED YOUR BASHING
