The most important question that I ask every patient during each prenatal visit is, do you feel your baby move? Fetal movement is always a beautiful thing and reassures you that your baby is alive.How often should you feel your baby move? What should you do if your baby moves less than normal?
I am 17 weeks pregnant and at about 15 weeks I started feeling the baby (fluttering feeling). For the last 4 to 5 days I have not felt anything. Should I contact my provider or is it normal to only feel the baby intermittently this early on?
I am 21 weeks pregnant, and am only 18, so am very cautious and worried about everything. I was told that you are supposed to feel your baby move a lot by now, to the point where it's even little kicks. I haven't felt a thing that I can accept as baby movement. Am I just not perceptive enough? Or is he really not kicking me?
Hello I'm 23 weeks and I'm not feeling my baby move as much as people say I should. I was just wondering if that was normal or if there was some thing wrong? Please write back.
Due to special situations like high blood pressure, premature rupture of membranes, twins or triplets, your provider may decide to order a non-stress test (NST). An NST monitors a baby's health by showing his/her baseline heart rate and also any increases in the heart rate due to movement. It's an easy, painless, non-invasive test that allows your providers to monitor baby's well being in the womb.
Consider staying home for most of your labor, allowing yourself the comfort of your familiar surroundings. You will be able to employ your hypnosis techniques much better in your own, quiet surroundings, and as long as there are no danger signs.
Everyone knows that pregnant women are not supposed to sleep on their backs. So I was watching TV with the volume way up, Sarah asleep next to me. She looked comfortable, but something didn't seem right. After a minute, I figured it out: She was on her back.
