Quickening (Definition)

Daily quickening refers to looking for approximately 10-12 kicks over about 10-12 hours. Quickening is when a pregnant woman first notices baby movements or baby kicks.

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 ...Read more

Blood tests negative, feeling baby kick, how can I determine my pregnancy using other blood tests. Fibroids make them not see anything on ultrasound.

Unlikely scenario: Fetal movements are not usually detectable to the mother until at least 16 weeks. By this time, no amount of fibroids should obscure the fetus. In general, even an early gestational sac should be visible by ultrasound in the setting of most fibroids. The blood test used for pregnancy is very sensitive and accurate.

A little early: Typically women start to feel the baby move between 18-22 weeks. The husbands can usually feel it a little later although this will depend on the mothers size. In very skinny women men may feel it earlier than if she is a little larger. If you are uncertain of your exact gestational age your Obgyn needs to know that so a sonogram can be done to verify. ...Read more

I have this uncomfortable feeling in my belly for last 1 day. Passing a lot of non smelly gas (fart). What can I do? any quick remedy? Thank you

Sometimes it can be related to something in our diet that we have trouble digesting. Dairy or difficulty digesting beans are common. Taking simethicone (otc) after meals may help along with probiotics. Try limiting caffeine may help ...Read more
