  • Completely normal. Babies go through periods of super activity and then calm down for a few days. Usually when they are calm, they are growing alot and are just tired. At 22 weeks, your baby still has a lot of room in your uterus to move around. Not until 30 weeks do you need to start being concerned with the amount of movements you feel in a day. As long as you are feeling SOMETHING, you are good.

  • This is totally normal. My baby didn't move regularly until after 24 weeks. Sometimes he wouldnt move for a week, and it would freak me out, but its normal. After 24 weeks you should feel movement on a regular basis and usually after meals, or after you drink cold water and lay on your side. Hope it helps! Congratulations on your new baby!! How exciting!! :)
