Probably normal: Fetal movements vary. As long as the baby is moving you should be relieved. Please check with OB staff if movement is not detectable for more than a day. ...Read more

Babys movement increaced dramatically today is that normal? 36 weeks 5 days

Babys movement increaced dramatically today is that normal? 36 weeks 5 days

Yes: At first the kicks you notice will be few and far between. In fact, you may feel several movements one day and then none the next. Although your baby is moving and kicking regularly, many of his jerks and jolts aren't yet strong enough for you to feel. But later in the second trimester, those reassuring kicks will become stronger and more regular. ...Read more

Please ask your OB: At 36 wks 4 days all ?S or concerns should be addressed to you ob, your OB can do a monitor strip and an us with a bpp if your OB is worried or u are worried, movement does not have to be hard but must be able to feel movement everyday, and if u were my pt and are worried at the end, i would induce u at 39-40 weeks , baby at that point better off out than in. ...Read more

I'm 36 weeks now. Should i be concerned about too much baby movements? Knowing that a week ago i could barely feel her movements. Please advise me.

Normal: There is nothing wrong with too many fetal movements. There was probably just a change in position that enabled you to feel things more easily. Consider that this is the new "baseline" for you, and any decreases should be reported to your doctor. ...Read more

22-23 weeks baby had really strong movements, now 24 weeks, she's gentle but still active. Wonder if it's normal to have such strong movements.

Less room: You will find that at this point baby is adding on size and becoming more limited by the walls of the womb.Earlier gymnastic events are no longer possible in a tighter space. The fluid to baby ratio peaks at about 12-14 weeks before they are felt and declines to a minimum by birth. Gentle movements later on are the norm. ...Read more

Kick counts count: Eat a bit of food or drink a small amount of juice, then lie on your left side and count how long it takes you to feel your baby move 10 times. You should feel 10 movements within 2 hours. If you don't, call your provider. Often women feel that their baby isn't moving enough because they are too busy, or are distracted by other things going on. Stop and pay attention you'll get a better idea. ...Read more

Is it normal not to feel movement for a couple of hours late in the 3rd trimester?

Is it normal not to feel movement for a couple of hours late in the 3rd trimester?

Yes: You should feel your baby move every day. Babies have sleep cycles and you may not feel them move while you are sleeping. If it has been more than a couple of hours since you felt your baby move, try eating a snack or drinking juice, often this will make babies more active. If you are still not feeling movement you should call your doctor or the hospital to listen to the baby's heartbeat. ...Read more
