Welcome to ehealthforum

Congratulations first of all.Babies in the womb have the habit of kicking at night as when the mother keeps on doing some activity the baby assumes it the time to be of rest and when she sleeps or take rest they do not have that motion feeling and they kick.Also while in the daytime you are busy in other activities so do not perceive the movements.
Keep a watch on your baby's movements and if at any time you have a doubt consider visiting a Gynaecologist for evaluation immediately.
All the Best,

Take Care!
