Baby's movements during the day

Hi ladies I'm 28 weeks today and I was just curious as to how active your baby's are during the day as in not first thing or in the evening when your laid/sat down but can you feel movement when your doing things throughout the day?

35 weeks here. I feel a few pokes and kicks randomly throughout the day but the real party starts when I lay down to sleep - that's when she moves the most.

I'm 30 weeks and hardly feel much in the day. The odd 20 mins I'll get a flurry of pokes and then nothing. I mainly feel movements in the evening and in the morning when I wake up. I hardly feel anything through the night either but I'm guessing that's cause I'm sleeping lol

I'm 26 weeks 4 days, and as well as the morning and nighttime movements, I feel her after lunch and snacks (she must like her food!) and then about four separate times over the course of the day.

41 weeks here (!) and much the same. A few kicks after lunch while I sit down for a cuppa but mostly first thing in the morning and last thing at night.

Okay thank you ladies. I was just worried as I'm coming into my last trimester now and just thought I should be feeling him more throughout the day as well as in the mornings and evenings.

Same as other pp's. Wriggly first thing and early evening and he is having a few kicks now but usually quiet throughout the day x

I would feel random movements whenever I would be doing housework but not so much as night time, my little boy LOvEd to move at night, I guess babies have different preferences when they move and don't

I'm 28 weeks, nothing regular during the day bits of movement here and there. She gets a bit more active around 4.30/5.00 pm towards the end of the working day.

On days when I've not been able to do much and spent more of the day sat/lay quietly she is more active /I notice her movements more. My partner jokes it's because I've confused her into thinking it's night time!
