Not feeling my baby move very often at 26 weeks.

I am 26 almost 27 weeks and most people I know are saying their babies move like crazy. I am worried about it but feel like an idiot when I ask questions at the doctors office. It's not that my doctor is mean or anything but I just feel dumb or underinformed for a first time mom. Should I be worried? Should I ask my doctor about it?

I don't feel this one move a lot but I didn't feel DS1 A LOT until about 31 weeks when he was bigger and well..very strong. I don't think first time moms feel a lot until they're further along liek when their spouse can visibly see or physically feel the baby move or yourself when you lay your hand on your belly.


You're paying the doctors to answer your questions and DAMNIT CALL THEM AND ASK THEM!

Don't be afraid to ask you doctor. That's how you learn and quite frankly it helps your doctor catch if something is wrong.

With my second he rarely moved, complete opposite from my first who moved almost not stop until the end when he'd scare me sometimes but I'd get the 10 kicks in 2 hours. The only time I really felt him is when he'd sit on my sciatic nerve and when he dropped because of the pressure. Talk to your doctor and see what they say. Better safe than sorry.

Thank you all for your wisdom and advice. Yes this is our very first child, and I am a worry wart for sure. I will call my doctors office first thing in the morning. Thank you all again
