I'm just about 26 weeks and the past 3-4 days I have felt barely any movement. He's usually crazy at night before bed and now I will wait patiently for hours and not feel anything, even after eating/drinking. 

I had an appointment Tuesday and I brought up to the doctor he was moving less and she said that it was fine, that kick counts don't start until 28 weeks. But should his movement really be this little? I mean he has been super active since I was 17 weeks, now I feel maybe one tiny flutter a day. He's getting bigger so shouldn't I be feeling more movement? I mean you used to see my whole belly moving from the outside, but not anymore :(

I don't know about normal or not but since 24 ish weeks my baby seems to have a really lazy day or 2 and then a crazy active day. Then it'll be normal for a few days before going back to lazy then crazy again. It worries me everytime but less so now I can see a pattern to it.
