Now 20 weeks, I felt baby move @17th week. And daily feeling baby only once or twice strong (few days light) when I take rest, is it normal at this stage?

Probably: At this stage the baby is still very small and you might not feel many of the movements. There is still plenty of room inside the uterus so movements are not felt as strongly. As the baby gets larger and there is less room the movements are felt more. If you ever have a concern your provider can easily confirm the heartbeat is adequate. You may be able to stimulate by playing music. ...Read more

Babies: Babies typically start moving around between 16-24 weeks. If your baby was moving, then it is crucial you let your doctor know if there is a decrease in baby movement activity. It is better to be safe than sorry. Also, going forward, keep a log of baby kicks per day and document them. This is a great way to note any changes in activity. ...Read more

This is the 11th, so you can wait but, hey, if you are really concerned called and see if they can schedule you earlier. Can't hurt to try and if they can't, your (or any) doc could see you for two minutes and just listen for the baby's heartbeat ...Read more
