Could be nothing--baby could just be sleepy--but if you're worried I would say go and get checked ASAP. You could try lying down for an hour or so (on your right side), drinking something sugary, shining a flashlight on your belly or playing loud music nearby to see if that wakes him/her up. But there's no harm having the mw listen for a heartbeat and make sure everything's ok.

I agree.. How far are you? Is it still early?

I'm 30 weeks & my baby has days where she doesn't move much. Then days where she doesn't stop. I usually drink juice and lay on my side when I'm nervous. I also find that on days when I'm really busy, I don't notice as much movement.

Are you able to feel 10 movements within 2 hours? That is the "standard" when doing fetal kick counts. I really only notice my baby when I am totally at rest(sitting down at work or on the couch, or laying in bed at night).

I don't think kick counts should be done at 25 weeks because the baby is still pretty small... it's likely he/she could be turned in towards your body or something to that effect and that's why you aren't feel as much movement.

yeah i guess he/she could be turned. i just have had pretty regular baby workouts and the last day or so it has been pretty quiet. i try juice, etc and lay on my side and just get a kick or two. i still feel them once in a while but they are not as active or strong as they normally are. i dont know that i feel that something is wrong, but it has caught my attention.<br><br>
thank you everyone.

Even at 39wks I have days when the baby doesn't move as much as usual. Those days almost always follow a day of constant movement, so I just think that the baby is tired from the day before. As long as the baby is moving some I don't worry about it.<br><br>

I'll be 26wks this saturday and my little one doesn't move much....here and there..every now and then she'll go on a spree around 11pm but not much..<br><br>
Her big sister was the same way and it worried the crap out of me (she was my first) so my MW gave me that kick count info at 28wks instead of their normal 32/34wks and I NEVER once got the "norm" of 10 kicks in an hour, drink some juice and try again kicks....ever never ever.....She was just a lazy little one and a super mellow baby but perfectly healthy.....<br><br>
This time I am using a doppler my friend bought....just here and there to check for heartbeat bc I am still paranoid about not moving bc ppl have made such a big deal about it and all my friends seemed to have babies that moved ALL THE TIME....but I stopped using it last week. I am going every 2wks to the MW anyways for other reasons so.....I know all is good in there....<br><br>
I am sure things are ok. My MW said the main things they look for are a very different pattern of movement...going from moving all the time to not at all etc.....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">s<br><br>
Oh, and when she did start moving and grovin more than here and there I wished her to stop....my back hurt...turned the wrong way.....but it was at the very end...LOL
