  • you don't really have to worry about kick counts and consistent movement until 28 weeks. but if you are worried, kick back on the couch with something really cold to drink, or really spicy to eat. wait 30-45 mins and baby should start moving around. a lot of the time you just can't feel baby moving because she is kicking back toward your spine or you are moving around.

  • I didn't start to keep track until a bit further along.   Are you worried?

  • she moves most at night .. Like 4 or 5 in the morning... but not that much during the day

  • She might have an opposite sleep schedule than you~ it happens.
    And it is also possible that you are more distracted and your body is moving through the day to detect subtle fetal movements.
    I don't know that it's anything to worry about~ but call you doctor/midwife if you feel concerned.
    Good luck! :-)

  • I agree with Rhianna1708, you don't have to count kicks until you are at 28 weeks. If she hadn't moved in awhile, I would sometimes just push on my stomach lightly until I got a push back. Or drink a carbonated beverage.
