  • Lay on your left side and have some orange juice. Baby is still pretty small and may just not be kicking as hard where you can feel it. You will notice more movement if you aren't moving that's why I said lay down. Laying on your left increases blood flow to the baby and the oJ will wake him up. However if you are still concerned call your doctor. That's what they are there for. They may call you in for a nonstress test .

  • They dont usually have you do the lay down and drink soemthing thing til you are doing kick counts at 30 weeks
    The baby is still pretty small and you wont feel all the kicks
    If you are worried tho go get checked better safe then sory I always say

  • Im around your same gestation and the kicking fluctuates from day to day. You have to remember the baby is moving around a lot and may have changed position. If your feeling twitches it may be that the kicking is deeper now than it was before. I wouldn't worry too much.
    Good luck.
