Just lurking from Oct but I wanted to tell you that this happened to me every three or four days until I was a bit past 28 weeks. Baby girl would be busy busy and then have a day where she was pretty quiet... it hasn't happened to me in a couple of weeks, but I think it's pretty normal until about 28... now she doesn't ever seem to stop rolling and poking me...HTH a little

Babies definatly have sleepy days. With my first pregnancy I did not feel baby move much for a couple days and got scared. I called the OB and they had me come in for monitoring. It turned out baby had turned and I was not feeling much movement. If you need some piece of mind I would call the OB, but I am sure everything is fine.

Try not to worry, even though I know that is easier said than done. I remember that happening a lot with my oldest. Like others have said, if you continue to worry call the doctor and if you get no response there you can always go into labor and delivery and tell them. They'll usually hook you up to a machine right away. I hope you find peace of mind soon.

I generally feel the babies in the morning and at night when laying in bed, but even then it's not consistent. Agree with the advice already given, and I hope you get some great action soon!

As long as you are feeling some movement I would not be concerned.

I know it's hard not to worry... I am bad at it but also keep in mind as she gets bigger she has less room to wiggle so you will feel more thumps and less wiggeling.

You can also get a heartbeat monitor if it helps put your mind at ease that she is still doign well. I got one and if I start to freak out I listen and hear is heart beating wonderfully :)
