Hi Sonam. You may not feel every time.
Dr.Shilpitha Shanthappa can you guide?

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Hello...
There is no set amount of kicks to expect and there's no need to keep a written record or chart of your baby's movements.. If you haven't concentrated on feeling these sensations, you may have missed them. To help you to focus and count baby's movements, lie on your side with support under bump. Stay still and watch for a couple of hours, during which you should feel at least ten separate movements... Put your feet up, have a snack, and relax. Babies are sometimes rocked to sleep while you are moving around, and he may wake up when you stop and have something to eat.. Have a really cold drink. Your baby may feel the change in temperature and try to move away from it...
Contact your doctor if-  You don't feel ten or more separate movements while lying on your side for two hours.
Your baby doesn't start to move in response to noise or some other stimulus.. Or if there is big decrease in baby movements..
