Is it normal for baby not to move much at 25 weeks?
A: A baby’s movement in utero prior to about 25 or 26 weeks is very inconsistent. That means that some days you will feel movement, and some days you won’t. This is based on many different variables, including the baby’s position, how often they are sleeping, what you are eating, how active you are, etc.
Is it normal for fetus to have quiet days?

Do baby movements change at 25 weeks?
From 18-24 weeks on you should feel the baby move more and more. After 32 weeks, the movements will stay roughly the same until you give birth.

When should I worry about baby 25 weeks?
When to see a doctor

Should I be worried if my baby is not moving as much?

Fetal movement can be irregular when you’re still in the second trimester, and there’s probably nothing wrong—but if you’re worried, call your doctor or midwife.
Is it normal for baby to be really active one day and not the next?
Fetal movement prior to 25 to 26 weeks, however, can be inconsistent. This means that you may feel a lot of movement one day and very little the next.
