Ive gone a few days here and there with out feeling Damian move.. I just think to myself that its because I'm more active on those days and not really paying attention to him in there. Then I have days like today where I haven't done much in there and he must be running a marathon. I have also noticed that if I drink a glass of juice like fruit punch or something it gets him moving.

If you're used to feeling her regularly, and it seems odd to you that you haven't today, then I would drink some orange juice or other cold, sweet drink and lay down on your left side for awhile. You'll probably feel her within an hour.

I agree with the previous post -- Yesterday I was very active and when I finally laid down to relax lastnight I was thinking that I didnt feel her move really at all that day so I waited a bit and still didnt feel her -- so I drank a glass of apple juice and laid down on my left side and then all of the sudden she started moving like crazy -- now today I didnt do anything -- I've had a cold so my hubby gave me the day off -- took care of the munchkin all day -- and I have felt her move soo much today!!!!!

If you drink the juice and lay on your left side and after an hour or so don't feel her I would just call your doctor.

If you normally feel her every day you should continue to feel that. Sometimes they have quieter days but you should still feel some movement. Have you been extra busy or distracted today? Maybe she's been moving but you didn't really notice.

Try drinking something sweet like orange juice and then go lay or sit on the couch and see if she gets moving.

I have days where I feel Josiah barely at all and on other days he's super active.

If I haven't felt him as much as usual I will poke him and drink something sugary & cold and lay down on my left side for awhile. That never fails to get him going.

If you still can't feel her moving after that I would recommend calling your doctor and/or going to the ER, just to be on the safe side.

Please KUP!

When I was pregnant with Adriana, she barely moved.. Even when I had to do non stress tests, the nurse had to zap my belly with a vibrating thingie 3-4 times to get her to move just a little bit.. lol

With this pregnancy, my boy moves ALOT.. It's the total opposite of what Adriana did..

But I think where the placenta is can make a difference too..

If your concerned, I'd contact your doctor and maybe he/she can check on the baby's heart rate.. Just to give you a piece of mind..

you are getting to where you should have pretty regular movement. If you don't notice movement I would call your doc and start doing kick counts too.

At this point baby is pretty active... once you are way into the 3rd trimester baby starts running out of room so movement is different.

I don't wanna worry you, but if you are not feeling movement really do talk to the doc.

I'm glad to hear that everything's fine! My doctor told me that starting at 20 weeks if I don't feel minimum 10 kicks in two hours to go straight to emerg!
