Lazy baby

Hi all
I'm 20+3.
I've been feeling baby move a lot, which is lovely. But since being very active on Saturday, he/she has barely moved at all. I've felt maybe 3 tiny taps/movements since then.
Something to worry about or normal?
Thanks.

I was told not to worry at that stage as baby is still small enough to spin around and kick organs! I also have an anterior placenta so didn't feel regular kicks until 24w

If you are worried then go and see your midwife - honestly, they will not mind - they would much rather you did that then left it and worried.

I'm not feeling anything at 20 weeks so I wouldn't worry

At this stage 3 per day sounds good to me! You can get heartbeat monitors on amazon if you're worried in between appts.

For peace of mind, call your Midwife. A normally active baby who has slowed in terms of movement can be a sign of a problem.
