When should fetal movement be regular?

I am 25 weeks now. First started feeling baby around 22 weeks. Husband could feel him at 23.5 weeks. I usually feel him throughout the day sporatically, but I haven't felt much of anything for about 2-3 days now.

Just wondering when I should start to worry or if this is still normal at 25 weeks. At what week should movement be consistent and regular?

I have an anterior placenta if that means anything.

    baby is still small but you could try drinking ice cold water and lying on your side you could also try kick counts

    Fetal Kick Counts
    During pregnancy, healthy babies usually are active babies.

    The kick count is an easy, non-invasive test that you can do at home to check your baby's well being. The idea is to be sure he or she is moving around enough.

    There are numerous ways to count your baby's movements and numerous opinions on how many movements you are looking for within a certain amount of time. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends that you time how long it takes you to feel 10 kicks, flutters, swishes or rolls. Ideally, you want to feel at least 10 movements within 2 hours. Most likely you will feel 10 movements in much less time.

    Though strongly recommended for high risk pregnancies, counting fetal movements beginning at 28 weeks may be beneficial for all pregnancies.

    Remember: Your baby will normally have periods when it is asleep, sometimes lasting as long as four hours; however, this period should not exceed four hours.
