5 per hour: Babies live in 45 min sleep/wake cycles. They move less when they are sleeping and then more when they are awake. Most patients can feel at least 5/hr when they concentrate on it. Lying down brings the uterus closer to your abdominal wall making it easier to feel. ...Read more

Will likely flip!: At 25 weeks, babies in utero are moving all over the place. Generally, they line themselves up in the last four weeks or so - into a head-down presentation. I've seen a few situations where babies have actually flipped from head-up to head-down during labor! there are variations in the way a specific uterus is made that will encourage a baby to stay in a transverse lie.
