Hi everyone I'm 20 weeks and I've been feeling baby properly kicking for about two weeks now and actually start to see her move and kick from the outside now however today I've not felt her as much and have only seen her move from the outside a couple of time....should I be worried? Or is this normal at this stage?

To be on the safe side, I would give your midwife a call. Your baby has probably just moved to a different position or is having a quiet day, but it is always best to check. I hope everything is ok.

My midwife told me the other day it was totally normal cause babies still so small and has loads of room to move when I get a sugary drink and some gig to eat she I can feel her move again and I have my scan tomorrow

In that case, if you have already spoken to your midwife about the exact same situation and she has told you not to worry, try not to do so.

If you're worried, give your maternity unit a call. That's what they're there for smile

Check out kicks count. They have lots of advice but the general one is if your not happy or baby isn't moving as usual contact your midwife

At this stage of pregnancy it's more common/usual for your baby to suddenly not be moving as much - very different to the 3rd trimester when any change in usual movements must be taken very seriously and checked out thoroughly.

However "Count The Kicks" will give you all the information you need regarding what to do at this stage of pregnancy regarding reduced movements.

Thank you ladies just had a wee nap and woke up and babies going mental now getting some really strong kicks!!!

This used to make me so anxious! But I don't think at this stage there is a pattern to the number and frequency of kicks.

If in doubt at any point, you must call the midwife or the delivery suite. They are there to help and can do so so much better than anyone here can.
Glad baby is feeling better now though
