You need to call your doctor and make sure the baby is growing and the placenta is functioning.
You may not be noticing some of the movements. Kick counting is recommended for everyone past 27 weeks, but you can do it now too:
There are numerous ways to count your baby’s movements and numerous opinions on how many movements you are looking for within a certain amount of time. The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends that you time how long it takes you to feel 10 kicks, flutters, swishes, or rolls. Ideally, you want to feel at least 10 movements within 2 hours. You will likely feel 10 movements in less time than that. Start with a snack and lay on your left side, if you are not feeling any movements or very few in the 1-2 hours, you need to call your doctor.
