  • Usually at that stage, they are still sporadic in movement. But if you are genuinely concerned about the movement, call the doc and see how often they like the baby to move and do counts.

  • phone your doctor immediately of your concerns. If there is something wrong, you can catch it in the early stages. Looking forward to hearing a good report soon.

  • its ok for short periods of time, like 15 min, even 30 min. but baby should always move, my doctor told me to drink some orange juice, when baby wasnt moving "to wake him up" it always worked for me,

  • I haven't felt mine move for days at a time. Then some days all he does is move. Doc says everything is fine.
