Presumably okay for the baby to move more some days than others?

Am only nearly 22 weeks and just checking that it os okay for movements to vary? Some days the baby seems to move a lot, other days hardly at all. I presume I shouldn't worry about this at this stage yet as some people have not even felt kicking by this point?

mine's movements vary. The official advice I got from my midwife was that if you think you have felt less movement than you would expect, or no movement, eat or drink something sugary, lie on your left side and wait for an hour. If you don't feel ten movements in the hour then call the midwife for more advice.

I was told the same thing as prosecco. Also, if concerned, I was told to jostle my tummy around and wake it up/ make it move!

I am 26 weeks and mine is definitely more active on some days. He does move on the quieter days but on other days it's kickboxing and somersaults.

I read somewhere that, like grownups, they have days where they don't feel like doing much. But if you have any concerns speak to your midwife.
