  • Well have you felt him move any? Have you called your Dr. and told him or asked him about it? Some times later in pregnancy babies don't have as much room to move around and get comfortable and stay put, but call your Dr. That's why you pay him big bucks, so call him, that would at least ease your mind and calm you down.

  • Movement does tend to slow down for some women as time goes on and you get further to full term, there is less room for baby to move as freely, if your concerned and havent felt any movement for 24 hrs or so you shoud go to your Dr or the hospital so they can check things out and you can have peace of mind.

  • im 20 weeks and i barely feel mine move either...my doctor told me not to worry about it too much because he looks healthy and it just may be because hes not strong enough to let me feel it

  • maybe he is too big to move the way he use to. as he gets bigger he does not have as much room to move around.

  • yes I would make a sooner apt, explain on the phone your concerned as you havent felt much movement and I am sure they will squeeze you in...........I was the same way when I was pregnant, its only normal to be concerned.

  • DON'T WAIT 24 HOURS! If you can't feel movement in an hour call the doctor and tell them the last known movement you had.
    24 hours could be a completely dead baby, two or three could be dying baby.
    Not to scare you.
    Yeah there isn't as much room, I'm less than 5' and had smaller babies but always felt movement.
    You tried different simulations, try some caffeine, loud music on your belly, dancing, sex, anything that causes massive movement. No movement I would call on the way to the hospital.

  • Call the advice nurse and do a kick test. If you still don't feel anything giro the doctor or hospital. But take in to account they move less when they get cramped.
