  • Depends on the baby. My first I felt maybe once a day, currently I am pregnant with my second and I swear he never stops moving. If you do not feel the baby at all for many days, I would talk to your doctor.

  • Yep to the above. Also depends on the mama. Some women feel it more than others, skinny-minnie-mama's tend to feel it the most.

  • I wasn't feeling either of my two regularly at that point. Some days I'd feel them constantly, some days hardly at all. My second I would go days without feeling movement, and it turned out that she was just turned so her back was to my front and all her moving parts were facing inside where I couldn't feel them as much. As the baby grows, you'll feel it more often. But if at any point you get seriously concerned, go ahead and call your doctor; they should at least be able to get you in for a little reassurance, if nothing more than listening to the heartbeat on the Doppler device.

  • Nothing is constant till around 27 weeks, then you will feel your baby all the time. My friend rarely felt her son move and the daddy never once felt the baby on the outside and he tried. Now my daughter, was a bundle of energy BEFORE she was even born and I felt her all the time at about 25 weeks on. She still is a ball of energy.
