  • Don't sit and worry, as mom2kaydence09 said, go and get checked.

  • Have you had a chance to lie down in a quiet room? After drinking orange juice, you can lie down for 30 minutes with no TV or noise. You'll be able to focus and pay close attention. You can try it to see what happens.

  • If you do a kick count with no movements, go straight to L&D. To do a kick count, drink a cold drink of something with a NATURAL sweetener (like juice, not soda - my doctor said it seems to work a little better if it's naturally sweetened) & then lay on your left side. Count each movement within the hour (that includes all movements, not just kicks). If you get at least ten movements, you have nothing to worry about. If you get at least 3 or more movements, but not more than ten, within that hour try tapping your belly & drink another glass of juice & count again for another hour. If you get no movement the first time (or again less than ten the second time) you should go to L&D.
