Count the kicks: Hi Julia,

Usually at 37 4/7 wks the baby seems to "slow" down. They get larger and their movements are larger. The whole body moves as compared to the numerous kicks felt around 30 weeks when he was smaller and had more fluid around him.

I'm 26w pregnant today. My baby's movement patterns are different during the weekend than when I'm at work. She doesn't move as much. Concern?

I'm 26w pregnant today. My baby's movement patterns are different during the weekend than when I'm at work. She doesn't move as much. Concern?

Fetal movement: Probably not. At that gestation, movements are not as forceful ; you are not expected to feel all of them. When you are distracted by work, telephone calls, other children, etc, you are less likely to feel the majority of movements. If you note that you haven't felt the baby moving, take a few minutes, or an hour ; concentrate just on movement ; most likely you will feel it. If not call your dr. ...Read more

I am 19 weeks pregnant and haven't felt any movement yet. Should I be concerned?

No: If this is your first pregnancy, I don't expect you to feel bonafide fetal movements until the 22nd or 23rd week of pregnancy. Women who have been pregnant before have "corporate knowledge" and can tell the difference between fetal movements and background movements like bowel activity at a younger gestational age. I wouldn't fret just yet. ...Read more
