Feeling baby move...she isnt?

I'm 25 weeks and I haven't felt the baby move all day. I was really active today, with laundry and cleaning. Is this normal?

  • I am 23 weeks and the more busy I am....the less I notice my little one moving.

    Try getting a drink and maybe a piece of chocolate...caffeine to get her active.

    Eat the chocolate and lay on your left side very should feel movement eventually.

  • The more you move, the more it 'rocks' baby to sleep. Sit down for awhile and see if she starts moving. Mine was non-existant during the day but the minute I would lay down to sleep, she would be doing summersaults.

  • yes thats normal but if you lay on your left side after drinking some sugary or caffienated beverages or eating some candy and she still doesnt move then call your doc...they would rather you call them!! if you go in for a check up and mention this happened and you never called they will prob chew u out : ) better safe than sorry...usually all i had to do was sit quietly and think about my bay and its like she could read my mind and she would kick or get the hiccups or something...

  • im pretty quiet all day so me doing alot of housework all in one day is unusual. I hope she moves soon, I get so worried about her. Wish me luck!

  • Its totaly normal. I know that the more I moved around it seemed to lul him and had a rocking effect on him. On lazier days he was far more active. Later on in my pregnancy it really didnt matter what I did I couldnt get him to stop moving/ kicking a whole through me lol.

  • Totally normal. When I was pregnant and didn't feel her move a lot, I drank orange juice. For some reason, orange juice really gets them moving! Also, placing something cold directly on your belly helps them move, too.
