Drink orange juice with extra sugar in it, make sure you are hydrated. Babies do have 30-45 minute sleep cycles, but they shouldn't go a whole day without much movement. Drink the juice, lay down in a quiet room, and drink several tall glasses of water. 

How far along are you?

Since I just saw your other post, it may just take longer to feel the baby more often. I'm sure the baby moves a lot you just may not notice it. :)
As PP said juice and cold drinks usually help, but babe is still fairly small and is building muscle up. Don't worry in the next few weeks it will become much more obvious.

Try drinking some OJ and laying down for a bit.

Lay on your left side and eat or drink something cold. My DD went crazy for red grapes. OJ gave me the worst heartburn, I still can't drink it!
