  • THEY COULD BE RUNNING OUT OF ROOM TO MOVE. BUT KEEP UP WITH IT, IF IT KEEPS UP I'D CALL THE DR. JUST TO BE SURE. THEY DO EVENTUALLY START MORE OF A ROLL THAN A KICK THOUGH.

  • I'm 27 wks pregnant, and I've noticed there are days where the baby just doesn't seem to move. I don't think it is abnormal, because they are trying to develop a sleeping pattern just like anyone else, so sometimes they will be awake for hours on end, and sometimes they will be asleep for hours on end. If you are concerned about it, call your doctor, but he probably won't tell you it's anything to worry about. When you are around 28-30 weeks, your doctor should have you begin kick counting.

  • Remember, the baby is getting larger and his/her apartment is getting smaller. But, still be very aware if the baby doesn't move, tap and move your belly to make sure the baby is ok. If youre concerned go to the dr. asap.
