Fetal movements: Absolutely you should be concerned if the fetal movement decreases or there is no movement at all. Moms usually start to feel fetal movement at about 20-22 weeks. There are different ways to monitor fetal movement- some use the criteria of 10 movements in 2 hrs, others may use 4 movements in 1 hr. If you feel that your baby is moving less or not moving at all, contact your health care provider.
