Baby doesn't really move

Posted by on Jun. 2, 2012 at 8:44 AM

I'm almost 24 weeks pregnant and I really don't feel my baby move much. I'd feel her sometimes (rarely) a few weeks ago, but only if I got hungry. Now I really don't feel her at all.

Or maybe I just I do but it's so minute that I don't recognize it?

And I never see/feel her moving from outside my belly.

Is this normal??


**Edit: 
After I posted this I decided to just lounge back in bed and watch some TV. I put my phone on my belly right above my belly button and watched it for a little while. She kicked it. =]
And while I was laying in bed (trying to go back to sleep) this morning, I felt her a couple times.

I think she's just a calm baby. I have my 6 month appointment on the 13th so I'll bring it up then.

This is my first. Which leads me to thinking I don't know exactly what I should be feeling so I mistake some movements for gas or disgestion. Idk.

She's always had a strong heartbeat at all of my appointments and she's developed perfectly so far.

Kick counts. If its been more than 24 hrs with no movement you can feel go to your dr. I had this problem around 25-26 wks or so. I went to the hospital because I was traveling. They said everything with baby was fine, but I ended up having a c-section at 36 wks because they said she wasn't growing anymore and wasn't really moving around.

shes still pretty small. i didnt feel my kids a whole lot at that time.

try drinking some really really cold water and see if it makes her move around. my doctors told me to do that with DD#1 when i didnt feel her move a lot.

Drink some Orange Juice, or something sweet. Lay on your left side and count kicks for an hour. I think it's 10 kicks in an hour, or i could be mistaken. If you don't feel any movement for a while go in and see your doctor to check up on baby. Sometimes I wouldn't notice if she was moving if I was moving around a lot during the day. I felt my baby most when I was laying down or sitting still.

i think at 24 weeks they are still small enough you won't feel much yet. there are some people who don't start feeling baby at all until around  this time. it just depends on baby's size and position and also position of the placenta.

if you are truly worried, call your doctor to put your mind at ease.
