Baby movement question

Is it normal to feel baby move on some days and not feel anything for several days if your 23 weeks? It's been worrying me, I felt her a couple nights ago but haven't felt her since.

  • its still early for major movements it could be your just not feeling her cuz shes not tht big yet or her postion if your truly worried drink some ice cold water or some orange juice and lay on your left side baby should move i think like 15 kicks in a hour or something like that iv never had to do kick counts as my children are always very active. If you are still worried after that contact your OB

  • Yes it is. I wouldn't get worried at all. Just depends on your positioning and the baby's positioning. Once you hit your 3rd trimester it'll become much more frequent and noticeable.

  • Perfectly normal, you're still very early on. You'll feel it more stronger and more often later on in your pregnancy.

  • Everything is probably fine. But if it were me, I would try drinking some juice or ice cold water to see if I could feel some movement.

  • Yes it is normal. I know exactly what you mean. I would worry constantly when I wouldn't feel her for a bit. I wouldn't feel truly calm until I had a Dr appt and got to see an ultrasound or listen to a heartbeat, something to let me know that all was still well in there. Good luck!!!
