  • It's pretty normal. BUT....try to drink some juice, lie down and see if you feel anything. If you are concerned enough to ask us, why not call the doctor and ask? Some docs have on-call nurses for questions, or you might try calling the advice line of your health insurance. It's better to ask and stop feeling worried. Although I'm pretty sure that it's completely normal.

  • It is normal, especially that early. When I was pregnant with my youngest I would drink some juice and lay on my left side - I would usually feel him moving around then. I also had a home fetal monitor, I could hear his heartbeat (and him moving around) whenever I wanted to. It saved my sanity. (I had a high risk pregnancy)
