I am almost 7 months pregnant about 30 weeks and I am not feeling much fetal movement. I feel fetal movement?

everyday about 5 times but i don’t think that is enough according to the rule that ive heard the baby is supposed to move 10 times within two hours.also I have asked my doctor and he told me that i am very overweight and that this is my first and that is why I’m not feeling much fetal movement.Do you have another opinion based on your research,past experiences,or knowledge????? I’m worried!

    Go and see your doctor or midwife, but I suspect it’s just because as the baby is growing bigger there is less space for him/her to move. And yes, being overweight can mean that you don’t feel as much fetal movement
