When should I be concerned about fetal movement?
If you haven’t felt any movement from your baby by 24 weeks, see your doctor or midwife. If you think your baby’s movements have decreased in strength or number, contact your midwife or doctor immediately. Do not wait until the next day.
Should I be worried if baby isn’t moving as much?
If your physician or midwife has already instructed you to monitor your baby’s movement with kick counts explain that your baby kicked less than usual today.

Do babies have quiet days in the womb?
Most women will be aware of baby’s movements by about 20 weeks, although this may occur earlier with a second or subsequent baby. You may still have quiet days up until about 26 weeks of pregnancy.
Is it normal to feel baby move some days and not others?
A: After about 20 weeks, you should feel your baby should move every day, but there’s a wide range of how much activity is considered normal. On some days, your baby may seem like the Energizer bunny, while other times you may be less likely to notice every little kick and wriggle.
Why is my baby so active at night in the womb?
Pregnant women often observe more movements during the night time. One of the common reasons that could explain this pattern is that baby becomes more alert when he/ she is not feeling any activity. While would-be-mothers are more active during the day, baby goes into the sleeping mode.
