Thanks for the query.

These kind of fetal movements are perfectly normal. The general rule is 10 movements in 10 hrs, not necessary every hour baby will move. Baby sleeps for 16- 20 hrs in womb. Movements are more in night and after meal when you lie down. Try to lie down in left side tilt position; in this position, blood supply to the baby is good. Eat green leafy vegetables, pulses, milk, milk products, and have regular antenatal check-up with your local doctor.

Best wishes
