Occasional Quickening (Overview)

Occasional quickening refers to being able to feel a few baby movements a day. 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 half of her pregnancy.
