I have decrease in fetal movement or no movement at all, should I be concerned?

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.

Some mothers of infants with ds say they felt less fetal movement than from their non-ds fetuses; others say their fetus with ds was a good " kicker." there is a range of hypotonia in infants with ds, just as there is a range of cognitive ability.

Is it normal for fetal movement to be more mellow after days of extreme fetal movement? I'm 27 week and 4 days.

Is it normal for fetal movement to be more mellow after days of extreme fetal movement? I'm 27 week and 4 days.

Yes and no: Your fetus's activity pattern will vary hour to hour and day to day - much like anyone's activity. Of course, the absence of fetal movement is very worrisome. A decrease in usual fetal activity day after day can indicate that your baby is having some significant problems. This should be evaluated by your caregiver immediately. In general, if your baby moves more than ten times/hr it is doing well.
