I'm 24 weeks and I'm feeling movement fully now.. but how much is normal? My child seems very calm and doesn't really kick much.. With my first she was very active (and still is 😩!!) so I don't know if I should be worried at all any advice would be appreciated x

All babies are different so I don't think there is an answer to this as everyone is different and all pregnancies different smile as long as you know what is normal for you and you are feeling movement then I'm sure baby is fine. And I think movement will continue to increase for the next few weeks too as they say there should a pattern by around 28 weeks.

I'm 34 weeks with dc2 and all through this baby has been quiet, totally different to dc1. I think midwives talk about considering the baby's pattern rather than counting kicks so that's what I've been doing - I know this is a quiet baby so as long as I feel him fairly regularly then I feel ok. With dc1 I was counting kicks every hour but that wouldn't work this time.

Yeah that's the same, my first had hiccups pretty much all the time and was constantly moving about.. this time round she's very very quiet but always has been (until last night!) so I haven't worried to much but then I worried that o should be worried! Who said it was easier second time around!!? X
