Low kicks(between belly button and hairline) will b 24wks preg in 4days. Is this normal kick in area. Is baby laying horizontally with feet dangling?

This sounds: fine. Having been pregnant in the past - I sometimes found it confusing to try to figure out what part of the baby was bumping me in different areas. It isn't just their feet that be banging and bumping. (: Congratulations. ...Read more

Quickening (Definition)

Daily quickening refers to looking for approximately 10-12 kicks over about 10-12 hours. Quickening is when a pregnant woman first notices baby movements or baby kicks. First movements are felt during the second trimester, with first-time pregnant women feeling quickening later in the trimester, and the experienced women being able to feel quickening early in the trimester. A woman's doctor can tell her how many kicks per hour or per day she should feel from the baby (and when to call the doctor), at each stage of the latter ...Read more

Why am I feeling baby movements very low as in my pelvic region during 26th week of pregnancy? Anterior lying placenta. First pregnancy.

Why am I feeling baby movements very low as in my pelvic region during 26th week of pregnancy? Anterior lying placenta. First pregnancy.

Baby location: At 26 weeks gestation the very top of the uterus (fundal height) should be about 6 cm above your belly button. That means the baby will be laying pretty low down since you are only in the 2nd trimester. You can have your doctor verify for you at your next visit. ...Read more

Dr at what time we need to start baby kicks count in pregnancy?im 24 weeks right now feeling baby almost all time near right side of belly button?

This is pass/fail: Baby kick counting is a pass/fail measure to alert you ONLY when there is a diminishment or absence to then notify your OB MD. Otherwise, you will need a computer to monitor ALL of the movements which is just not practical and you would have little time to engage in that thing called "life". ...Read more

22 weeks pregnant and feeling baby movements sometimes at the pelvic region and cervix/vagina area. Not low lying placenta. Is it ok to feel so?

Its fine: Most of your baby's movements should be down near the pubic area since the top of the uterus is just above your belly button. Early, the baby is often times breech and you will feel love kicks. ...Read more

27weeks carrying low baby is breech and extremely uncomfortable .Baby is below my belly button . Should I be worried?

27weeks carrying low baby is breech and extremely uncomfortable .Baby is below my belly button . Should I be worried?

No, likely will flip: Among breech babies, >50% switch to cephalic at 32wks, and it even happens at 38wks spontaneously. OBGYNs can perform a VERSION to flip baby at term, but DON'T TRY @ HOME. All breech babies should be delivered via C-Section b/c the risk of vaginal delivery is too great (head entrapment and fetal death due to cord compression). Only in RARE situations are vaginal deliveries performed. ...Read more

Im 28 weeks pregnant, belly has dropped very low, baby moves a lot down my belly botton, no pain or blood, belly tigh 1 or 2 per day, please help!

Normal: What do you need help for? This is normal. This is common and there is nothing here to be of concern. What does your prenatal guide book say? I believe your OB would have recommended at least one book on being pregnant to read during this exciting time. That book would also have the common and normal things to expect during pregnancy. ...Read more

Dr.. Where we will feel baby first movement(around 18-19 weeks)?? Im having bubbling sensation very lower abdomen just above pubic bone.. Plz advise

That's probably it!: The time period you mention is very typical for first feeling fetal movement. It usually occurs between 16 and 22 weeks. Mothers with experience in previous pregnancies are often able to appreciate the movement earlier than first timers! These first subtle kicks are known as "quickening." The sensation is described as being like popcorn popping, goldfish swimming or butterflies fluttering! Enjoy! ...Read more

32 weeks, second pregnancy, I am feeling baby move very low down and feeling sharp pains with the movements. Is this normal?

32 weeks, second pregnancy, I am feeling baby move very low down and feeling sharp pains with the movements. Is this normal?

Possibly: Pregnancy can cause all these symptoms. However I would suggest a urine test to rule out a simple urinary tract infection. I would recommend calling your OB for a visit or going to the emergency room to check you and your baby before anything else is done! Good luck. ...Read more

30 weeks preg. Feel alot of pressure n sharp pains in pelvic area lots of tighting of stomach. Felt baby drop.is this preterm labor?

Possible: That should be ruled out--either with a trip to your hospital, or to your doctor's office ASAP. Usually preterm labor is associated with painful uterine contractions coming every 5-10 minutes, or bleeding, or leakage of fluids from the vagina. ...Read more

Feeling tight and cramps just below the belly button, nausea. Low fever of 99.7. Sometimes feel heavy in lower ab. Not pregnant. ?

Feeling tight and cramps just below the belly button, nausea. Low fever of 99.7. Sometimes feel heavy in lower ab. Not pregnant. ?

Negative preg test : If you had a negative pregnancy test, my best guess would be that you are suffering from a mild GI infection/irritation, which is not terribly uncommon. It coukd even be a reaction to something you ate. Try to take it easy with what you eat if you feel like eating, sticking with blander foods like toast, oatmeal, soup, crackers. If it gets worse or nausea/vomiting/bad diarrhea- see your doctor. ...Read more

I'm 25 weeks pregnant and today i'm feeling the baby moving down in my pelvis?Is it normal cause i always feel it up in my abdomen?

I'm 25 weeks pregnant and today i'm feeling the baby moving down in my pelvis?Is it normal cause i always feel it up in my abdomen?

Yes: Rarely - it could be an indicator of trouble, preterm labor or something else. But it is common for the discomforts of the baby's movements to radiate into the pelvis or vagina. The round ligaments insert into the labia of the vagina, and so round legament pains can refer into the vagina/pelvis as well. ...Read more

I'm 25 week pregnant. I feel breathlessness sometimes when baby moves in one side.but normally when baby kicks, I don't feel any problem at all.

25 weeks pregnant: At "25 weeks", the size of the uterus is usually enough to reduce the motion of the diaphragm muscle, which prevents full expansion of lungs. Depending on the extent of activity, not the baby's position, some shortness of breath will occur until delivery. ...Read more

I am 29 weeks pregnant. Baby is lying very low, transverse, and low lying placenta. She moves very erratically, seizure like. Is this normal?

Yes: It all sounds normal. The fetus is often in a transverse positions, and actually may change positions frequently this early in pregnancy. Erratic fetal movements are common.

Relax, drink plenty of fluids, take your prenatal vitamins, and keep all your prenatal visits. ...Read more

Is a pulse like feeling in your abdomen normal? Im skinny and can feel it lying down.

Yes: It is the abdominal aorta. In fact, if you had someone place their ear on your abdomen they would hear the "whoosing" sound of the blood flow in the abdominal aorta. It may also feel "enlarged, " but if you are thin, it is not a problem. ...Read more

Im due in 3 weeks and my baby don't move and kick as much why?

Im due in 3 weeks and my baby don't move and kick as much why?

Monitor: It is very important to make sure the baby moves every hour. You don't need to set your alarm clock to monitor the activity during the night; i just mean during your awake times. If you really feel the baby is moving less, you need to call the OB and be seen. They will hook you up to a monitor and check the baby's heartbeat. ...Read more

18 weeks pregnant and feeling light twitches on my lower left abdomen. Are these fetus kicks?

18 weeks  pregnant and feeling light twitches on my lower left abdomen. Are these fetus kicks?

Baby kicks!: Only time would tell you if that is the baby kicking. The fetus usually starts to kick around week 18, so there's a good chance that this is what you are experiencing. It may not happen daily for a while until your baby gets bigger but it should come and go randomly for a while. Good luck & congrats. ...Read more
