Most first time moms will feel movements between week 18-24. At times movements are not felt if
mom is very mentally occupied or stressed
if placenta is anterior
if amniotic fluid is less or more.
If worried please check with the doctor to reassure yourself.
hi saranya, drink something cold and sweet and lie on your side for sometime with a hand on your tummy and try to feel... first time moms dont feel movements until later because they dont know what to look for... it may feel like gas, like bubbles popping or butterfly fluttering... if you still dont feel anything, consult your gynec.. if you feel, do let me know... 😊
hey saranya - breathe dear. have u followed what sheeba suggested? am tagging Dr Charmi Thakker Deshmukh Dr.Shilpitha Shanthappa Dr. Payal M for advice. pls hang in there. sometimes babies have slow days. hugs.
hv u done 5th mnth anomaly scan ....in Dat u wl CM to know abt baby health
Dr. Payal M
the movements initially r not strong but feel like flicks or bubbles. r u feeling these? u will only feel the kicks tht everyone talks abt much later.
if u really feel nothing in next few days or r very uncomfortable abt this just visit ur doc n she can check fr a fetal heartbeat or ask fr a scan.
Dr Charmi Thakker Deshmukh
everyone is different and feels the movements at different weeks of gestation. you should be able to feel some movements usually by 18 to 22weeks. but sometimes you might not be able to feel the movements due to thick abdominal wall or anterior placenta or distraction or sometimes just because you just don't know what to look for. if you are worried you will have to visit your Gynecologist and so that she can make you hear the fetal heart beats so that you are reassured
