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.

Is an occasional fluttering feeling in chest during exercise common in otherwise healthy population?

Is an occasional fluttering feeling in chest during exercise common in otherwise healthy population?

Maybe: If you mean you can feel your heart beat fast after exercise, you may just be out of shape like me and that may be normal. If you really mean fluttering, ie an irregular heart beat you may have atrial flutter or atrial fibrillation, which requires treatment. You should see a doctor. He may want to put a monitor on you to see what your heart beat looks like on an EKG when you have the symptom. ...Read more

Random bowl changes: sometimes diarrhea, sometimes constipation. Gurgling noises from stomach, and random, slight nausea episodes. ?

IBS ?: If your diet is the problem, this could all get better with just a change in your food selection.

Your GP can suggest food choices if you need help, our Concierge site has GI doctors that can help as well ...Read more

29 weeks pregnant. Occasional severe pain in lower back pulsing with heartbeat lasting 30-90 seconds. It only happens while sitting.

29 weeks pregnant. Occasional severe pain in lower back pulsing with heartbeat lasting 30-90 seconds. It only happens while sitting.

Strain: Your center of gravity is thrown off by the enlarged uterus. This puts extra strain on the back muscles. Sitting is the position that is hardest on the back. If it gets better when you get up and walk or when you lie down, it isn't labor. Lumbar support can help. Do discuss this with your doctor at your next visit. Best wishes. ...Read more
