ok im just over 23 weeks preg and also due in feb (cant wait) but anyways dont stress!! ok u firstly gotta bear in mind that the baby takes 20min sleep cycles, i dont know how often, but trust me it takes those cycles quite a few times!
also girls are less active in the womb then boys...
anyway jus remember all pregnancy are not the same... sometimes i dont feel the baby for a long while then before u know it \"kick\" \"kick\" \"punch\" \"punch\"
my advice to you, and this my doctor gave me, dont time ur baby u only put it under stress coz u gonna be tense, just relax if ur finding it difficult to relax drink a glass of water, lift ur feet up and listen to something that calms u... and if u really are that worried then lie down and cough on purpose a few times and try turning to the side and u should feel ur baby move...
but honestly dont stress its for urs and ur babys own good
i hoped ive helped in some way if u eva need anything... feel free to chat...
xx take care

Just try to think positive for yourself and try not to let what happened to the other girls get in your way. There was times when i didnt feel the baby kick all day but started during the night, they are all different. You will know deep down if there is something wrong. Its just your instinct to know.

Wow I had the same problem around the same time as you..You're almost six months right? I had it during my 5th and 6th month and it was horrible, a lot of unneeded stress that's for sure. I actually ended up going to the doctor one day because of how worried I was and here's what he said.
If you're really anxious lie down in a quiet place where you can relax, for one hour time each little kick and flutter you feel no matter how slight...I think it's 10 kicks at least you should feel in an hour. Chances are girl, the more you stress out about him not moving the more you probably won't feel him when he does. Don't worry about it, this will pass. Wait till you start worrying about stillbirth and SIDS! Woops SORRY! Don't go there, just relax and enjoy your pregnancy, it'll be over wayy too quickly!

Im 22 weeks pregnant. On my other message board (women due in feb.) two women lost their babies in the past two weeks. When they went into the doctors the dr could no longer find a heartbeat and at an u/s they confirmed the babies had died. They were a few weeks behind me but still pretty far along. Now if the baby doesnt move for more then like 2 hrs I get really worked up and anxious. Its even worse on days I have dr's appointments. I know its not good to stress out like this but Im having a hard time relaxing any tips?
