    I was told 10 in 12 hours, but to pick the time scale in which baby is most active..I don't actually do this :oops: Only because baby is constantly moving..midwife also said movements can mean tiny flutters to big rolls.

    As your busy during the day and working you probably wont feel him moving around so much, as long as he moves around and u feel him at his most active time like 2nite then im sure all will be fine! Maybe have a chat with your MW next time you see her?

    When I was last at my mw appt she said you should be feeling 10 movements in 24 hours too. I haven't kept track yet but I am sure I feel this amount.

    I honestly wouldn't worry about it. I find that Flump is active for about 3 days in a row then has a couple of quiet days now. It's as if he exhausts himself and then needs a rest lol.

    It may also be that you;re not feeling so much whilst you're active during the day. If I am out and about I feel Flump but nowhere near as much as I do at night when I'm relaxing and laying down. It also depends what position they're in.

    The beginning of this week I was feeling massive kicks, since yesterday they have been less prominent and lower down again.

    Don't worry Gem, I'm sure everything is fine. He's perhaps having a little rest before Xmas or just in a funny position so you're not feeling him so much!

    Not long til your scan now anyway and you'll see him in all his glory :D

    you will notice movements more next week when you stop work. As long as what you are feeling is normal for you and bubs don't panic :hug:

    Try not to panic. It is a bit confusing as you can feel much more than ten movements in one hour, say at 9 am and then not feel them again for the rest of the day and then you'll be wondering by early evening what their up to!

    My LO is his most active when i go to bed at night and maybe only a teeny flutter or kick randomly during the day,so I tend to watch out carefully for the bed time movements which im so used to. I think babies are just as different in the womb as they are when their born, but if i didnt feel ANYTHING in 24 hours i would definitely go get them to check it out. xx
