Increased Fetal Movement 36 Weeks
No: Increased Fetal Movement is not a common complaint. It is not a sign of labor. If you just ate a huge carbohydrate meal then maybe you have some increased movement. In pregnancy, I usually follow one rule. If you find something is not usual and normal for you go to Labor and Delivery and get the baby checked with a Non Stress Test. This is the only safe thing to do. ...Read more
Yes: At first the kicks you notice will be few and far between. In fact, you may feel several movements one day and then none the next. Although your baby is moving and kicking regularly, many of his jerks and jolts aren't yet strong enough for you to feel. But later in the second trimester, those reassuring kicks will become stronger and more regular. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Movement fine: It may be an increase in movement, or it may be the baby is getting big to that point where you can really feel every litle thing he/she does. The baby may also be getting into that final position for birth. Too little movement is concerning, but "too much" not a problem. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
Call your doc: If you are feeling decreased movement, you should speak to your doctor today, even if you have an appointment tomorrow. They can go over kick counts with you to help you differentiate normal variation versus a worrisome decrease. ...Read more

34 weeks pregnant no fetal movement 36 hrs cramping in thighs tender tummy and sevre bark like cough ?
Yes…: The normal range for fetal heart rate (FHR) is 120-160, so 127 is considered normal. However, the FHR alone is insufficient in determining the wellbeing of a fetus. In general, a moving baby is a healthy baby. There are other tests to see if the fetus is doing well such as a non-stress test (NST). ...Read more

Less likely: So, the first assumption is that the dating is correct. If you are truly 7+4 weeks, there should be both a fetal pole and a heartbeat. But for various reasons you may be only 5-6 weeks so worth repeating ultrasound to make sure ...Read more
Textbooks, library: There are many, including some very good textbooks. Depends on how detailed you want the discussion. "the developing human" is a good one, though it has been around awhile.

Gestational sac of 9mm with no yolk sac and fetal pole in six weeks with irregular periods means?
6 weeks and 3 days pregnant. US showed gestational sac and fetal pole shown, no heart beat. HCG decreased from 17407 to 10943. Is this a problem?
Yes: I am more concerned with the falling HCG than the lack of Fetal heart at 6 wks. If the dates are wrong, the fetal heart beat may not be visible. This can be checked by repeating the U/S in two weeks. Falling HCG is abnormal at this stage of pregnancy. I recommend you have it rechecked and the U/S repeated. The image is of a 6 wk preg. See how small the fetus is. It is easy to miss a heart beat ...Read more
