Concerned !! Not feeling movement today !!

I'm a little concerned I'm 24 weeks pregnant and baby boy usually moves a lot throughout the day and especially at night ! Very strong movements ! But today I have not felt him move . I've tried to lay in positions that usually make him kick and squirm a lot but have felt nothing . I'm getting a little worried ! Any advice ?? Anything I can do to get him to move ? Should I call the nurses line and see what they say ?

It's always good to call if you're worried about movement.

Babies don't stop moving as they get bigger.  They move just as frequently, in fact you'll feel them more as they get bigger because they're taking up so much space you feel every tiny twitch and wriggle.

This has happened to me a few times I was also worried, I am 37wks now but when I was about the same as you I didn't feel him move either,he was sleeping. I've noticed if I eat some chocolate he moves around like crazy. Don't stress out he is probably sleeping. I went two days without feeling him and the doctors said everything was fine.
