If you feel 3 kicks right away, "a-ok". ...Read more

No worries: Fetal movement is important. It is difficult to determine what is "excessive", but more is always better than less. If you are concerned, then check with your obstetrician. Congratulations, and good luck! ...Read more

Sounds okay: Not everyone notices vigorous movement at 24 weeks. This evening try resting in a quiet place. You'll usually feel movement within 30 to 40 minutes. ...Read more
