  • Try a cold compress on the stomach.. usually gets mine to kicking :) Also make sure to drink lots of water to make sure you are well hydrated! You can try half a cup of coffee or other caffeinated beverage if nothing else works. If he hasn't moved at all during the night, I would suggest a call to the doc. Good luck!

  • I used to poke at my baby while I was pregnant and he would get mad and beat me up

  • drink some cold water?

    Laying down typically works for me.

    Poking at your belly or just grabbing your belly and kind of shoving it around for a while can help too.

  • lay on your back and take a few deep breaths or cough even my baby always moves when i do that

  • With all of my pregnancies, if I was worried I would lay on my side for a few minutes and then flip to the other side and that normally got some reaction from the baby.

    With this pregnancy any time I poke at my belly I get a kick back.
