Since 16 weeks exactly he's been moving pretty consistantly.
He'd been mostly active in the morning from 6-10 am.
I am now 17 weeks and 4 days.
Yesterday I felt only about 4 movements the entire day.
Today, being up since 8 am & it being 10, I have felt none.
Should I be worried? Or is it too early for him to be consistant?

I think it's still too early to really be worried. The baby is still pretty small and REALLY needs to punch and kick for you to feel. If you want drink some Juice and see if that get em movin.

when i started feeling consistent movement from the baby, i was at like 20weeks i think the baby is still small to be consistently active.
At 20weeks, you feel the baby kick, wiggle, switch positions, punch...and it becomes alot more frequent in the movements.
The baby isn't always going to move as much too, there are days when the baby moves less than others, and then the next day is really hyper.
But wait till around 20weeks, you'll feel alot more.

If you're worried, drink some orange juice and lay on your side. You should be able to feel him after half an hour or so.

Personally I would not be worried... you can mention it to your doctor if youd like... but even with me I felt movement at 14 and 17 weeks then it stopped until mid 20s

im 34 wks and my baby doesnt move consistently every day, some days ill barely feel baby move at all and others he/she doesnt stop! i think also if youre run down it can affect babys movements, but dont quote me on that one.

at 34weeks, the baby does not have very much room to move around seeing that your getting much closer to your due date, which is why he/she isn't moving as much as he/she used to.

I had the same thing, exactly! But when I went to my sono on friday he was moving like crazy but I wasnt feeling it, so I think its just because they are still so small. Don't worrie Smile.
