When I first started feeling Zoe move it was a few times during the day. Now it seems to have decreased. Today, for example, I felt her this morning and I haven't felt her since. Should I go get checked out or should I just relax?

My Lily is doing the same thing. So long as I feel her at least a couple times every day, I don't worry. I suspect she sleeps during the day as evidenced by her behavior during ultrasounds. She is also most active in the morning before i'm even fully awake, but awake enough to feel her move and know it's her. I'm a heavy sleeper, so I'm not surprised she isn't waking me up at night yet.

If your concerned enough, I would try to eat/drink something and lay down and concentrate on her.....but at this stage, they can go for longer periods of time with not feeling them move....but that does not mean she is not moving! She may be kicking your interior more or the placenta as she can still make 360 degree turns!

I agree with Lori. You are still early enough that she can move without you knowing it. Another couple weeks you will feel her all the time . I had a hard time at that stage because of the quiet days. And they have those too. Days where they are just more quiet. Its hard I know. I usually had something with some sugar to get her to move when I got overly anxious.

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my great siggie

Thank you for the advice ladies. She started moving, where I could feel her, again.

They say not to start doing kick counts until 28 weeks for this very reason. Baby is still small enough that you won't be feeling as much of their movement. Actually, I had an NST at 32 weeks and I was really surprised at how many movements I could hear on the doppler that I wasn't feeling, and I thought I felt everything she did!
