  • All I can tell you is to call your Dr. Hon.

  • If you are that worried call your doctor's office . . . either way the stress you are feeling isn't good for you or the baby. Talk to someone there and see about going in and checking on the baby. That way you can take a deep breath and relax.

  • If you're worried about it call and get in asap. What kind of things do you eat?? My Doc always said if you aren't feeling baby then drink some juice or something with carbs to get the baby active and lay on your side and just wait. In my opinion your baby should be MORE active now and LESS active later on.

  • I would call the doc to make sure, but I hardly ever felt my baby move she would maybe give me a good kick once during the day then I think she moved at night while I was sleeping

  • Doctors will NEVER laugh or think you are a hypochondriac for calling or going in to check on the baby. If you are worried, then call your doctor. They would much rather it be nothing, than something serious that you didn't come in for. If nothing else, you will be less stressed, as TessLouise said.

  • I remember when i was pregnant, that my darling lil baby would wait until i was sitting down, or sleeping, then she would start kicking. The fact that your baby is still moving is a good sign. they are not ALWAYS throwin there legs around in there. I found that when i was pregnent, baby would move around more when i was sleeping, or relaxing. I think the movement makes them fall asleep in there.

  • Yea, call the doc, and go in to the office to get checked out. When I was pregnant my son would move a lot at night. He wanted to keep me up.

  • I wouldn't be overly concerned, my son didn't kick during the day when i worked. He went crazy every night usually while i was having my ice cream fix. but if you cant stop stressing thats no good either, so if you feel you need your docs thumbs up then call.

  • I'm almost 22 weeks pregnant and there's days when I feel the baby move practically all day and days when he or she doesn't until I lay down. I think it's normal since their little bones are not as strong, you may not feel the movement while you are busy throughout the day.  I think when you get further along you should feel your baby move  a lot more and actually see your tummy move.  With my first I didn't actually feel movement until I was 26 weeks or so.  Relax and call your doctor just to keep you from stressing.
