  • Depends on how far along you are.......if you feel kicking thats great the baby grows their is less room for him/her to move so you will not feel as much movement

  • Also baby may be developing a sleep pattern. Some babys wont be active at all for about an hour because they are sleeping off and on through the day and night. It also depends how far along you are too. If your really worried or dont feel movements at all call your doctor.

  • I have been told that babies tend to sleep during the day when you are active because your movements rocks the baby to sleep. Your baby tends to be more active when you are not. Like the middle of the night. If you are concerned do kick counts. You should eat or drink something sugary and then lay on your left side and count how many movements you feel. I believe that you are suppose to feel at least four kicks in an hour. If you are still worried call your doctor.

  • If your worried about it start doing kick counts. You need to get 10 movements in 2 hours. Pick the time of day that the baby is most active. Babies sleep at different times, if you were busy you might not have noticed the baby moving. Lie on your left side drink some oj and the baby should start moving.
