  • its very normal. try drinking juice or caffine, and then lay down. dont move. if you still dont feel baby to move then call your dr. but if you call now, they are just doing to tell you the same thing

  • ive had that happen twice, but only when i was doing my kick counts. you know your baby better than anyone else, and if your worried then go, thats what the nurses always told me. its better to get there and have nothing wrong, than to not go and have to deliver a stillborn. but like ashcoyle said, drink some juice and lay on your side.

  • Drink some apple juice and lay down for a little while. If that doesn't get her going within an hour, then I'd call your doc just to be safe. Remember, babies have sleep/wake cycles just like the rest of us! If you've been ultra-busy lately, your baby is probably wiggling around less because s/he's being comforted by your movements. :)

  • i know that its cold out side but take a cold shower that always works for me point the water at your belly and let it run until you feel like it if it starts to make you siver then turn more hot on the change in temp always woke my daughter up if that dont work try laying down you may be doing too much and then again like katie crandall said the baby has times when it is going to sleep and not move very much hope everything goes fine
