  • well the further you get in your pregnancy the baby will move less do to less room in ur long as you have set aside one hour a day to count how many times your baby kicks if it kicks at leat 10 times in one hour they are fine....if you want do it after you east breakfast and dinner....dont worry its not good for you or the baby......btw congrats

  • When to go to the hospital: If your baby moves less than 4 times in an hour... Watch the belly and observe the moves as well, because he may be moving, but you arent feeling it. :) I'm 36weeks and 5 days, and my baby has been freaking my out too.. but you just have to pay attention :)

  • the more relaxed u r the easier u will b able to feel the baby. try yr best not to obsess over it as the stress is not good for u or the baby. good luck and congrats

  • I delivered my son in 2008 and he was stillborn. This happened due to being under alot of stress after losing my dad. I am now 7 weeks and 4 days pregnant so I understand completely what you mean. But the way I look at is everything happends for a reason. God has a plan for all of us. So I continue to stay positive for myself and the baby and it has done good so far. So think of the positive and not the negative. GL to ya momma!!!
