    baby is still small enough to be making small movements that you would barely notice. I feel this one in the evening once the kids are in bed and I'm sat down relaxing. I hadn't felt him/her all day on Thursday, but he/she is kicking away right now :D

    You don't need to worry about baby moving until 28 weeks when you need to make sure their kicking 10 times a day.

    At this stage your baby is still quite small and has room to still move about that you won't notice, also they could be awake when your sleeping. Don't worry about it. :)

    Oh your baby is still quite small and wont have an established pattern so i wouldnt worry. You will have quiet days. I think after about 24wks maybe it should be more of an issue. It also depends upon which country you live in..here i was told 10 kicks/movements in 24hrs.

    I don't think you should be concerned, I didn't feel mine move at all until 20 weeks.
