It is common for pregnant women to start feeling their baby's movements, also known as kicks, between 18-25 weeks of pregnancy. However, every pregnancy is different, and some women may not feel consistent or strong kicks until later in their pregnancy. If you're 25 weeks along and haven't felt any kicks yet, it's important not to panic but rather take some steps to ensure your baby's well-being.

Firstly, try not to compare your experience with others as each pregnancy is unique. Some factors that can affect when you feel the baby move include the position of the placenta (anterior or posterior), your body shape, and even your daily activities.

However, if you are concerned about the lack of movement, it's always best to consult with your healthcare provider. They can perform a fetal kick count test or use ultrasound technology to check on your baby's health and development.

In the meantime, there are a few things you can do at home to encourage movement:

  • Get in a comfortable position: Lie down on your left side or sit in a reclined position with your feet up. This can help create a relaxed environment for both you and the baby.
  • Have a snack or drink something cold: Sometimes babies become more active after eating or drinking something cold like juice or ice water.
  • Play music near your belly: Some babies respond to external stimuli like music or voices by moving around.
  • Gently prod or poke your belly: Lightly pressing on different areas of your abdomen might stimulate movement from the baby.

    Remember that feeling no kicks at 25 weeks is not necessarily a cause for concern, but it's always better to be safe than sorry. Your healthcare provider can provide reassurance and guidance based on your specific situation.

    There are some day's where the baby will not move... In my previous pregnancy I remember my baby didn't move for 3 days and I panicked... But if it goes more then that I will say rather go to the doctor just to make sure baby is fine.
