True thing as per doc opinion... M a n 24th week now I too feel very less movement.. There was a time wherein I felt I 18th week after which no movement.. My placenta is anterior and  m obese too... Thn Dr payal n Dr shilpitha suggested the cold drink thing I tried and was able to fell...

In ths week the baby sleeps for more than 18 hours.. Wherein it's difficult to catch the movements.. Possibility that during ur sleep time the baby would be more active and during u r busy the baby would be fast asleep... Don't wry... After few week passes the movements would be more....
All Pregnancy's are different do do not compare the same and be disheartened... Njoi ths phase of life... Here moms are  vry active n would definitely help in situations... Take care dear.. asha Chaudhry Sheeba Vijesh wat say?
