  • Yeah its normal for the baby to not move as much after sex. Im almost 22 weeks myself and i asked my doctor that question last week. Except i was just wondering...i hadnt experienced my baby not move for more than 1 day so. My doctor said its normal though. My son is always on the move. He's movin now actually lol. Um...when my son stops moving for a long period of time throughout the day i drink Orange juice or anything cold and the baby moves like crazy. Ice always works for me too. Im sure your baby is just fine. Gl luck hun. If you feel like something is wrong which you will know trust me call your doctor though just so you can sleep alittle better knowing your baby is fine.

  • If you don't feel any movement for awhile, I would check with your doctor. It's normal not to feel movement constantly but if you go a couple days w/o any movement contact your doc. When you get later in your pregnancy, the baby doesn't move quite as much because of the lack of room

  • At 22 weeks, its still normal to go for a day or so without feeling movement, but you can always talk to your doctor
