How much should you feel the baby move at 21 weeks?

I was just wondering how much you should feel the baby move at 21 weeks...consistently?  I haven't felt movment for about 2 days.  I normally was feeling it every single day and at least twice a day.  Should I be worried?  I even tried eating sugary and oj..still nothing??

Not feeling anything at all???  If yes, then call your dr.  I've felt movement every single day since I was at least 20 weeks.  Now I'm 24 and am constantly monitoring movement.  Please let me know!!!

my dr told me that between week 21 and 25 you can feel less because there is more fluid than baby during that time so they have more room to move without bumping you... drink some orange juice lay on your left side and put your hands on your belly... see if you feel something in an hour...  sometimes you have to concentrate...

I started feeling movement at about 18 and a bit weeks, mainly right after dinner (a lot), and then it started in the morning, so it was twice a day, but for the WHOLE day before my 19 week scan I felt absolutely NOTHING. I ate really sweet foods and drank heaps of soft drink (I even made a really sugary butterscotch sauce and poured it over ice cream), but still nothing. I went to bed thinking that tomorrow morning I'll have the scan and they will tell me something is wrong, but the next day before I even got out of bed I felt heaps of movement! Even when the u/s tech was trying to get measurements she couldnt because he was moving around so much...and you know what?..... Out of all the moving we saw him do on the screen I only felt I little movement - so your babe is probobly moving around heaps but they are just not strong enough to feel!

I do not much about all this because I only have been pregnant all the way through once with  my  11 month old little boy1 But I can tell you that even unborn children have their own temperament. My sister and I were pregnant at the same time. At 14 weeks I could feel my little one kick. My sister said she never felt anything till she was at least 24 weeks. I know...sounds strange. But after both babies were born, a lot more made sense.

I had a very active 7 pound little boy and my sister delivered a 11 pound 12 OZ...yes....it is true BIG BOY! So, the doctors told her the reason why she never felt much of his moves was because his size was taking most of her belly.

He is a normal baby, a lot of people asked if he had diabetes. Nothing at all. My sister and I only ganied 25 pounds total with them. We ate very healthy.

What i am trying to say is...maybe your baby is a little calmer these days! Sometimes you have to pay attention to their quiet moves!
Good luck!

I just wanted to let everyone know that the day I posted this I went home w/ the doppler and found a heart beat of 144.  Still no movement but I was relieved to find the hb.  I went to bed that night and doesn't the lil bugger decide to start dancing!!  He was crazy.  I was never so happy in my whole life.  Now it is back to consistent feelings in the am and afternoon and pm.  I just get worried when it doesnt happen for a day or two.  When do things become consistent and when do you start counting?

Oh, I'm sooo glad!!  I don't know the "exact" time you would start counting kicks but I monitor movement EVERYDAY.... just to make sure I'm feeling something. I'm so paranoid!
