  • He should Move SOME but not alot. If you are really concerned call your doctor. Try to eat or drink like Appple Juice or orange juice and something to get him awake and going. Not to scare you but with my daughter she didn't move a whole day and I went to the Birth Center here and she was in fetal stress and she inhaled meconeum (Baby Poop) and they had to revive her three times and she spent the first month of her life in the hospital. But Please call your doc if you are concerned..

  • Call your dr or the labor and delivery dept of your hospital.

    If you have to wait for a response drink some VERY VERY VERY cold water and lay down. That might give your little dude the kick he needs to move.

  • I personally would have been on the phone yesterday with L&D if you went that long without feeling the baby move, that isn't a good thing. You need to call or just go to the ER.
