  • That's totally normal. Babies in the womb sleep too.

  • My Dd loved to sleep while I was cleaning house during the day, then at night, she'd wake me up with all her kicking!

  • Very normal. sometimes they run out of room to move and stay still.

  • It's normal, it's probably when your son is napping. But if you just want to make sure depending how far along you are, you can do the kick count.

  • its normal... kind of relief when my little one is still and sleeping... she wiggles so much :P
    if it makes you feel better you can always poke and push to wake him up haha
    but really, if you still feel him at some point during the day then its fine... you could always go buy one of those doppler heart rate things at Target if you can't stop obsessing about it (i don't think they cost that much...)

  • How far along are you? Once they start running out of room to move they sleep a lot more.
