The baby has not been moving much since last night. ? And I have not felt IT move at all today! I am getting a little nervous as to if my baby is okay?

How far along are you? Depending on where your at in your pregnancy has a lot to do with how much fetal activity you'll actual feel. Previous to 28 weeks or so you may not feel the baby constantly just because they are still so small and have so much room to move. Later in the pregnancy your baby's movements may slow down secondary to lack of space and/or more periods of REM sleep. If you are worried have a glass of orange juice, lay on your left side and concentrate on feeling for any movements. the norm is 10 per hour.  If you don't feel any, don't panic and call your practitioner and let them know. I'm 38 weeks along, and my little guy will go stretches without any movement and he's just fine.   Try to relax, I'm sure everything will be fine!
