  • i don't, just after i eat i lay down, and i check to make sure my lil one is moving, they say thats when a baby is most active is after a meal. i dont want to stress my self out especially when i am about to sleep, or try to sleep.

  • I am the type who is always freaked out about movement, and my first instinct is to tell you "Don't Worry". My baby has these days where he gets lazy, sleepy, or I just don't feel him as much as usual, and then I start to worry. I have asked my doctor about it a half dozen times and she always tells me that it is very normal to have a very very active baby for a few days, and then it seems like the activity levels drop and I will go hours without feeling him move around. At my last appointment they hooked me up to monitors and all that jazz and baby was doing very very well. She also gave me the information about kick counts. The sheet she gave me says to eat or drink something and then lay down for 2 hours and count for 10 kicks. She said babies sleep for up to an hour at a time, so not to worry if I didn't get anything in an hour, and the sheet also points out to put your hands on your belly, and that really does help me.
