Get in!: Hello, and congratulations on making this far in your pregnancy! Fetal movement is an important sign of how the baby is doing.

Is it possible to feel fetal movement at 11 weeks? This is my first pregnancy and I keep feeling fluttering and its not gas.

Is it possible to feel fetal movement at 11 weeks? This is my first pregnancy and I keep feeling fluttering and its not gas.

Unlikely to happen: Most women who have had prior pregnancies say they notice movement about 16 weeks. First timers often note this as 20 wks. Babies are active at that point but whether you can feel it is hard to say absolutely. It may just be gas.

Ua, us, bloodwork neg but clear fetal movement felt/skin tags, extremely tired and linea grava appeared...Whats the probabilty pregnancy?

Ua, us, bloodwork neg but clear fetal movement felt/skin tags, extremely tired and linea grava appeared...Whats the probabilty pregnancy?

I'm not an OB/Gyn: But urinalysis and blood tests for pregnancy are the best ways to determine pregnancy. Even "fetal movement" can be other things like gas or bowel function. The other "signs" of pregnancy you list are very subjective. Go with the facts; get another blood test if you really think the first one was bogus/false!

I have decrease in fetal movement or no movement at all, should I be concerned?

I have decrease in fetal movement or no movement at all, should I be concerned?

Fetal movements: Absolutely you should be concerned if the fetal movement decreases or there is no movement at all. Moms usually start to feel fetal movement at about 20-22 weeks. There are different ways to monitor fetal movement- some use the criteria of 10 movements in 2 hrs, others may use 4 movements in 1 hr. If you feel that your baby is moving less or not moving at all, contact your health care provider.

Can you tell me how monitoring fetal movement prevent stillbirth?

Can you tell me how monitoring fetal movement prevent stillbirth?

Kick Counting: Fetal movement is reassuring. Babies that are in trouble stop moving, usually awhile before they are at risk of stillbirth. Monitoring fetal movement is a way to make sure that baby is doing well without hooking you up to a fetal monitor. If your monitoring indicates that baby isn't moving enough, you can go to the hospital for electronic fetal monitoring. Best wishes!

Hi, I had light bleeding at 13+weeks. U/s showed baby is ok. I'm 19 weeks 2days now but still cant feel fetal movement. I've anterior placenta. What'll be the best time for u/s again?

Hi, I had light bleeding at 13+weeks. U/s showed baby is ok. I'm 19 weeks 2days now but still cant feel fetal movement. I've anterior placenta. What'll be the best time for u/s again?

Between 28 and 32 wk: A follow up sonogram or a "fetal growth scan" could be useful between 28 and 32 weeks. If your anterior placenta is not "low lying" or "previa" at that time, and fetal growth is good, there may be little cause for alarm. Be a patient; you will "feel fetal movements" soon.

Unpredictable fetal movement?

Unpredictable fetal movement?

10 kicks/hour: 10 kicks/hour is a universal count, but its dependent on what is your normal and more importantly how far along you are. If you are 25 weeks, you may not have predictable fetal movement the way you may when you are 35 weeks. Check with your doctor.
