  • Maybe the baby has turned. Do something active, like vacuuming or go for a short walk... then come home, drink something cold & lie down on the couch for 20 minutes. He should give you a couple of kicks. Another time my baby likes to kick is when I get in the bathtub. You could try that too.

  • drink something kind of sweet and lie down. OJ worked well for mine. You will probably feel more at night. Think of it this way.. when you are up walking around it's kind of like you are rocking him/her to sleep. When you stop moving then it's like hey what happened??

  • The previous 2 answers are right - try to count kicks if you can. See how long it takes you to get to 10 kicks. If it takes more than 2 hours, call your doc just to be safe.
