how often does bub move?

I'm the same! I'm 28 weeks and I feel bub move pretty infrequently. If I'm active and moving around i hardly notice it but if I'm laying down i'll feel her move a few times. I have an anterior placenta right at the front of my belly so I'm pretty sure this is why! It acts like a cushion. With my first DD I had a posterior placenta and felt her move all the time. Do you know where your placenta is placed? If you're really worried give your midwife or doctor a call.

I agree about the placement of the placenta too it can make a huge difference in the amount of movements you will be aware of.
And also if you're busy it can be very easy to miss the movements.
In previous pregnancies i noticed i could feel them more when i was laying on my side maybe you could try that?

If you went for an ultrasound right now, you'd see your baby rockin' and rollin' in there! Baby is moving heaps more than you think, you just don't feel it all yet. In a few more weeks when things get really crowded inside, the kicks and wiggles will be much more prominent - even with anterior placenta.

My first bub was a mover and shaker. She wouldnt sit still in utero. She is now 2 and still wont sit still. Bub #2 is due in early May (im 21 weeks this week) and he hardly moves at all. Sometimes i really worry that somethig is wrong but all bubs are different. Here's hoping this one can sit still for more than 3 seconds at the dinner table!!
FACT: Aparently, the uterus dosent have any sensory receptors (no feeling). What we feel when the baby kicks is the uterus knocking against our muscles and organs. And the other girls are right, it will all depend on where your placenta is lying. And, some babies just arent as wriggly as others either.

im 25weeks pregnant and i feel my baby boy kick,move all day long he is very active in the begining not so much but since 18weeks his been in full swing kicking constantly i dont remember with my girls kicking as much as he does,but i agree it can all do wiht the way your placenta is laying and if u did go for an ultrasound you would see buba moving around alot.

My baby was kickung heaps from 19 weeks.. I could have ice water sit and feel baby moving more but theb it got wayyyy less and i freaked!
Had OB appoint a week ago and told him i have the decreased movements and he did ultra soubnd and baby was kicking into my placenta so had moved a bit and thats why wasnt feeling it. Now baby is back to shaking my belly all the time.
I know how scary it is though! Nezt doc appoint see if they can check where baby/placenta is
