The last week or so he has been very active and I feel him several times a day. Well, now I haven't felt him move much with the exception of a few little, tiny, thumps in the last day. Is this normal? Did he just move or something or should I be worried? Also, Dh and I DTD last night and you guys know how worried I get when we do, so that is on my mind too.<br>
Can someone give me some insight or advice?

Of course. Don't you have lazy days?<br><br>
I find that the more active I am, the lazier the baby is. The lazier I am, the more active he is. Also, the more active you are, the less likely you are to feel all of the baby's movement.<br><br>
Sounds pretty normal at this stage. Later on, at 28, 30 weeks is when you want to think about your kick counts and all that.<br><br>
Having sex with your dh is not going to make your baby go still <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

I know, you guys all know how easily I get worried though. I really need to learn to relax.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

My baby turns around about once a day or so with her back facing my navel. When she does that, I can hardly feel her move. I wouldn't worry if I were you. We all have our not-so-active days.

I had one down day where I didn't feel my baby move at all, even after eating. I went to get checked out to be safe and everything was fine. The doctor told me it was pretty normal. But I haven't noticed it happen again since then. I'm a worrier too.
