If you are 28 weeks or later and feel less than 10 movements in an hour, it's not enough.
if you are 28-30 weeks then you need to be doing kick counts which should be 10 movements in an hour...if you don't feel that you need to call
movement is movement no matter how strong, or weak! You just want to be sure your feeling some kind of movement throughout the day after 25 wks or so.
I am having the same problem. 34 weeks, and he is barely moving around. Usually after breakfast he is break dancing up a storm, and now there is barely a blip on the radar. I dont do kick counts- my doc just wants to know if I feel movement throughout the day. Today however, and last night, I didnt feel nowhere near as much as I usually do. I dont know if it is from there being less room in there or not.
Clarifying that "10 movements in an hour" isn't 10 movements EVERY hour. You can just lay down for an hour a day and count.
I am 30 weeks and some days I barely feel anything. Other days, it's like he is doing cart wheels in there. lol.

I think it's important to just pay attention to what is normal for your baby. Maybe you really only feel baby certain times of the day, and it is normal to go several hours where you feel nothing. Your dr may give you a bunch of numbers about how many kicks you should feel in how many minutes, but nothing beats just paying attention to what you feel everyday, so that you will notice if something is different one day.
