Movement in pregnanc: Yes, at 24 weeks you should feel your baby move every day. A good plan: drink lots of fluid, and lie down quietly for about 2 hours. If you still feel no movement, it may be wise to check with your OB doctor. Sometimes at 24 weeks the movements may be small enough you miss feeling it if you are busy doing something else.
