As long as you can feel the baby move every day you should be fine. Some days they are more active than others.

Once your baby begins its first movements, you should feel it move everyday. After the 5th month, if you have begun feeling movemements and the baby does not move for more that a 34 hour period, you cshould contact your doctor immediately. However some days, the movement might be minimal while other days you feel like the baby is dancing around inside of you. Just be aware of the movements and you should be fine.

You should start to feel your baby move from 16-24 weeks ! You are more likely to feel the baby move when you are relaxing. The baby will move ALOT when you are sitting and relaxing. The more walking you do, the longer they sleep. They may move when your eating and drinking anything with sugar in it.

You start to feel the movement of your baby by twenty weeks. This is called as quickening. In the first pregnancy you may not feel the movement very often. In next pregnancy, you are experienced and can feel them more often.

You should be able to feel your baby move between 16-20weeks. if this isn't your first pregnancy then you will be able to distinguish 'baby' movement even earlier
