Is it normal to not feel movement every day?

I am 24 weeks and have been abe to feel my baby move since the 20th week. SOme days he is crazy and kickin around and others I barely feel him move at all...its just really inconsistent and am wondering if I should be concerned...I only felt him once today and it was really quick.

  • His movements may just not be as noticable or he may be moving while you are asleep. Which is very common because when you walk,talk, and move it soothes him so he sleeps. As long as you feel him it is ok. Doesnt need to be consistent. He just doesnt have his little routine worked out.

  • If your ever real worried drink something sugary like OJ, fruit punch or even regular(not diet) soda..then sit should feel some kicks within 20-30 min.
