  • eat something sweet, drink something cold, lay on ur left side, and wait till ur husband gets home.. try to make her move sumtimes laying things on ur stomach may help. if that doesnt help call ur dr

  • Have you been moving or more active than usual today? The baby could be sleeping or relaxing b/c of all the movement you have been doing. Sometimes when I take my prenatal vitamins I feel a lot of movement. Wait for dad and see if he can stimulat some movement. If not you might want to give your doctor a call. It wouldn't hurt. Congrats to you and DH/SO.

  • I had the same problem one day and called my doctor. They told me if I didn't feel him in a 24 hour period, that I needed to get checked. If you are concerned, call your doctor or go to the E.R. I'm not telling you to freak out but if it will give you peace of mind, by all means, do what you feel is necessary.

  • hardly even feel her move
    or
    do not feel any movement

    two different things all together
    as you get further along, baby can have down time (this worried me too)

    maybe keep a little journal for movement, this may ease some worry, as baby is moving more than you think, just sometimes extrememly active, if your gut says something is wrong- call your doctor

    and congratulations - your worry showss that you already are a mom!

  • Babies have down time just like we do,there are days my boys dont move around as much,but there are also days where it feels like a war down there lol,however when in doubt call your doc if you are concerned.
