Since I have gotten pregnant and have been able to feel the baby move, she has not stopped moving! I get the braxton hicks contractions quite often but have been told that it is normal so that isnt much of my worry! I havent felt my little girl move all day! Is there something wrong or is it normal? Does anyone know?

Thank you! It does make me feel better to know that it is normal and that I am not alone with this issue! I will try those things and hopefully something will work! But I do believe that she is fine!

You could also try drinking some orange juice if you need reassurance. When the sugars hit baby, she'll be jumping around everywhere. :)

have you been walking around a lot today ? baby's go to sleep in the womb when we move around, which is why you feel them more when y you go to bed, cause they wake up ! if you don't feel her much tomorrow, then contact your midwife, but i wouldn't worry to much at the moment !

it is normal at this stage, as they now have regular sleeping and waking patterns. she will have moved at some point, just a little tiny wriggle you may have been too busy or concentrating on something to notice. if you havent felt her move since you wrote thise this afternoon, try not to worry [i know its hard] just give her a little prod, or put on some loud music and jump [carefully] around a bit. some people have warm baths to help the baby move, or drink a very very icey cold drink. remember, things are also getting quite cramped in there! im sure you will feel her at some point, but as long as you feel fine and havent had any pains or anything, then chances are shes just being quiet at the moment. try these things, and wait til the morning, then if youre still worried or havent felt her talk to your midwife, but i assure you she will be fine!
