Baby movement: At 24 weeks it is not unusual to not feel baby move sometimes. Baby is still relatively small as compared to the size of you uterus. Sometimes you really have to concentrate and still may not feel it. If you eat a meal and then lay on you left side you have the best chance of feeling baby move. If you get worried go see your doctor who can listen for the heartbeat to reassure you. ...Read more

24 weeks pregnant, from which week onwards I need to track the baby movement daily?

24 weeks pregnant, from which week onwards I need to track the baby movement daily?

Fetal movement: Starting from 24 weeks on, fetal movement is pretty consistent. You should feel several kicks throughout the day. They do sleep so they may be quiet for a few hours. If you're ever concerned, lay on your side, turn on some music, drink something and track movements for 30 minutes. You should feel the baby move at least 3 times within 30 minutes. If you feel 3 kicks right away, "a-ok". ...Read more

Hello I'm in third trimester of pregnancy but I feel real less movement of my baby but in 2nd trimester I felt a lot movement?

Fetal movement: At 28 weeks your baby is a nice sized fish in a nice sized pond. At 35 weeks your baby is a big fish in a small pond. The number of movements and activity of the baby does not really change. It is the perception by you causing the changes. Rather than all the punches and kicks you now feel more rolling type activity due to the baby's size in the confines of your uterus. ...Read more

Likely: If you stop now and abstain, most urine screening tests would be negative by the expected due date. If you are on a watch list through child protective services, the babies initial stool is usually studied and may contain residual material. Abstaining and avoiding passive exposure to others who are smoking is you the best way to avoid issues. In my state, a positive stool separate you from baby. ...Read more

Is there a decrease in the baby's movement during the 19thweek of pregnancy?

Baby movements: At 19 weeks it would be really hard to tell whether you are having truly decreased baby movements or just not feeling your baby move consistently. At 19 weeks even in women who had previous pregnancies, baby movements are not consistently present. I would not get discouraged but would advise you to talk to your obgyn. He may elect to do an ultrasound to assess your baby's wellbeing. ...Read more
