Is it normal to not feel the baby move after the fifth month?

The moving of your baby is usually very reassuring. It isn't unusual for a baby to have quiet times when there is not a lot of activity. It may help to lay on your side to notice if the baby is moving or if it is still. If you feel the baby is not as active as what seems normal, discuss it with your doctor. You can always visit your doctor to hear the baby's heartbeat, but in most instances, there is nothing to worry about. Good Luck, Stacey I am in my 5th month of pregnancy also,And it helps to lay on my back,or to lay on my side and just leave my hand on my stomach to catch its quick moves. While it may be normal in some cases I would just like to add that I was pregnant at four months my doc told me the baby was under weight and would be ok. At five months I hardley ever felt him move. At six month I had lost all my fluid and had him he only weighed one pound and almost did not make it he is healthy now. Just be very careful and make sure if you think something is not right go strait to your doctor.
