Is it normal not to feel my baby move by the 19th week?

Is it normal not to feel my baby move by the 19th week?

Yes: 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 more

If these symptoms continue, please see a cardiologist. ...Read more

It is good to ask your doctor questions about your pregnancy and to be informed as to what to expect. ...Read more

Is it normal for a newborn baby to breathe at an irregualr rhythm and is it normal for their belly to move up and down drastically when they do?

Setting the system: After birth, babies system must decide how often and deep to breathe, with variation needed for changes in activity.This process produces noticeable irregularity in early breathing from fast and shallow to deep or not at all. Belly breathing is part of this transition.After the babies system sorts out the issue their breathing pattern becomes more consistent. It takes many weeks of trial and error ...Read more

Is it normal to feel your heartbeat in your chest all the time?? It doesn't hurt but it's always there and distracting.

Yes and no.: Heart beat in the chest is a good thing. Most people are not distracted by it. Awareness of heartbeat is generally more an anxiety issue than physiologic. Might want to have someone listen to it to make sure there is not something else going on. You should worry when it stops. ...Read more

How can you tell if the fetus is tingled up in the umbilical cord? My baby is doing way less movement than usual, and he's only on one side.

How can you tell if the fetus is tingled up in the umbilical cord? My baby is doing way less movement than usual, and he's only on one side.

Common issue: Babies that are tangled in their cord will generally start to show evidence of distress after labor starts if the tangling begins to decrease blood flow through the cord. It is unusual for that tangling to produce any changes during the stable pre-labor period.Diminished movement late in pregnancy can reflect lack of room as kicks turn more into shuffles. ...Read more

20 weeks pregnant and baby is still in transverse position facing spine. Is this an issue? My other kids were always head down. If so how to move??

20 weeks pregnant and baby is still in transverse position facing spine. Is this an issue? My other kids were always head down. If so how to move??

Posterior Position: Pl see attached for further info. Dont worry, most babies change position before Delivery. Try to tilt your pelvis forward, rather than back, when you're sitting. Check that your knees are always lower than your hips. This is called optimal fetal positioning (OFP) and it encourages your baby into an anterior position. It changes your posture, particularly when u are sitting down. Good Luck:). ...Read more
