  • I'm 5 months too and when I'm doing something then no I do not feel the baby move but if I'm looking at T.V. or just sitting down (not doing to much) I feel the baby move all the time.

  • It is b/c the baby is getting to the stage where there is not as much room to move around. So you dont feel them move as much b/c they cant. so its normal.

    Try laying on your left side and eat chocolate. Lay still for a while. The chocolate should stimulate the baby and laying on your left side is best for the baby's blood flow through the cord.

    It really works. I use to check my baby all the time like this when I was worried. Good Luck ;)

  • I'm 6 months and my baby is like the first post. If I'm busy she is sleeping, if I'm sitting and relaxing then she seems to move a lot more.

  • When you're moving its like rocking a baby to sleep. Thats why you dont feel them. I didnt feel my son till I was 6 month.

  • That and a lot of times when your busy people dont realize that their baby is kicking. Ya'll are still kinda early in the pregnancy, so the kicks wont be as strong. Not only that, my doctor told me that by 5/6 months your baby should beable to hear things out side of your tummy. If your around a lot of noise it might make your baby be still cause of the comotion scaring them. good luck guys.
