Though it can vary from one pregnancy to another, on average others around you can begin to feel the baby move around the end of the second trimester or near the beginning of the third (weeks 28 to 32), especially if they put their hands on your belly at the right moment and in the right spot. Though you’ve been feeling movement for several weeks, your baby may still need to get bigger so that their. If your partner places their hand on your stomach, they may feel the baby move as early as week 20. As your baby becomes bigger and stronger, your partner (or others you allow) will not only feel.

The quickening can occur anytime between 16-22 weeks of pregnancy. If you had a baby before, you may recognize the sensations earlier with subsequent pregnancies. Once.

“Most of the time, if it’s her first baby, it’s around 20 weeks that they’ll feel little flutters,” says certified nurse-midwife Marion McCartney, who practiced for 24 years before becoming. To be more proactive and conservative, you want to feel even more movement than ACOG’s recommendations. “After 28 weeks the baby should have at least 3 active periods of movement in a 24 hour period, in each of those active periods the baby should move at least 6 times in a half hour (or 10 movements in an hour). You should feel your baby’s first movements, called “quickening,” between weeks 16 and 25 of your pregnancy. If this is your first pregnancy, you may not feel your baby move until closer to 25. When you’ll first feel baby move (quickening) Most women feel the first movement of their active little tenant, known as quickening, between weeks 14 and 26, but generally closer to the average of week 18 to week 22 (though variations are common!).

A first-time mother might not feel her baby move until after 18 to 22 weeks, while an experienced mother might notice movement slightly sooner, around 16 to 18 weeks of pregnancy. Your baby is moving from early pregnancy on, though typically the baby is so small that it is difficult to feel. That’ll all change as your pregnancy progresses—but exactly when your partner will be able to feel baby move varies greatly from person to person (and pregnancy to pregnancy). For many, it’ll happen sometime between weeks 24 and 28, Twogood says, but that range can be as wide as 20 to 30 weeks. There are several factors that come into pla.

For a first-time expectant mom, most fetal movements can be felt between 16 and 25 weeks of pregnancy, aka sometime during the second trimester. This.

  • This is my 3rd pregnancy and I’m now 19+ weeks but still can’t feel moving that much. But sometimes I feel something like gas in tummy.. Is it the baby moving? Have my scan after 2 weeks and hopefully everything going well.

  • I’m 17 weeks but I am not sure. I THINK sometimes I feel my baby move but it’s not often and I’m never sure. I hope I start feeling her move soon

  • I felt my first around 16 wks, second by 14 wks, and I’m 16 wks with #3, I think I started feeling movements last week. I’ve never had an anterior placenta. It’s still really hard to feel movements this early. It becomes more noticeable by 20ish wks then quite noticeable by 24 then impossible to ignore by 28, then you’re a punching bag by 35. I never got past 32 with #2, but I remember my first kicked a rib that took my breath away at 35 weeks lol.

  • I am 22 weeks and I can feel the baby move all the time on the inside, but when I try to feel him with my hand on the outside it hardly ever happens. Is that just because he isn’t quite big enough?

  • I recently got steroids shot for my baby and noticed that he hasn’t been moving as much since getting them. I’m gonna go in tomorrow

  • My baby is usually very active. Yesterday she was very quiet for the entire day. I decided to count the kicks and got only 4 in an hour, which is very little to what I’m used to. I was on the way to the hospital and she started kicking (finally!!!) I counted 60 kicks in 7 minutes ��

  • i went to my the hospotal for my induction at 42 weeks when i was in hospital baby stopped move i told the midwives i was told they r bussy after 4 hours someone came and turned to monitor my babys heartbeat and the heartbeat was not found and i was told his tiny heart has stopped beating, i miss him so much i was he was here with me, he should of been 10 months old now and probably started talking

  • Thanq so much for explaining it so nicely.. Ur smile is worth million����.. Waiting for that moment to come and i will surely remember ur words and face on that day… Doing very well..

  • I’m at 35 weeks. I don’t feel her move the same way I did before. I don’t feel as many kicks or jabs or rolls, I mostly feel her stick her butt out. She’s also been hicupping.

  • My mid wife said if the baby is moving a lot more then usual and doesn’t feel right they could be in distress so she’s saying there is such a thing as too much movement

  • yes I felt it at 17 weeks:) My boyfriend the day after week 17 when he pushed my uterus. My placenta is at the back and baby to the front. I can see my uterus bulge:P Im also skinny

  • I’m pregnant with my 3rd baby, my other two kids didn’t move 6 times per hour or follow any rules about how many times they need to move, they aren’t robots! They were born healthy active babies, they’re doing great so I disagree with these requirements, babies are growing and developing in the womb, I think these requirements cause unnecessary stress on mothers

  • I am 13 weeks going into 14 weeks and I feel my baby move my baby is extremely active the person who did my ultrasound had to call another person in to see what we can do to stop it from moving so they could perform a test nothing worked I guess it depends on how active your baby is and I am not delusional I know what I feel

  • I have a lot of skinny fat on my belly… I am not fat anywhere in my body except my belly… Will that stop me from feeling the movements?? I’m 18 weeks

  • I’m 18 weeks pregnant my tummy is already showing up but I can’t feel any movements and it makes me worry since this is my first time having a baby

  • I feel like a butterfly fluttering around at 15 weeks but it’s my first baby so I wasn’t sure but I really do think it is because it feels soft and fluttery and deeper inside not like gas.

  • I barely feel my baby move. I was extremely sick during the beginning and can’t seem to keep food down as well as lots of bleeding but there’s nothing really doctors can do is what i’m told. I had to lay in bed and elevate my lower half now its better but I’m worried about its development at this point. I’m at 6 months.

  • Although I was told i won’t feel much until week 20 because I have anterior placenta, I felt my baby a little bit before week 16. Now I am towards week 18 and I can’t feel the baby move for the past few days….

  • I’m 17 weeks and this is my 3rd. And I haven’t felt much movement yet and I don’t wanna get worried but I know baby is too small like she said plus I’m a big girl so baby may have to get a lil bigger for me to feel something

  • I felt movement at 16 weeks 6 days. This is my 3rd pregnancie and i dont remeber either of my kids consistencly moving 6 times every hour after the 3rd trimester. Im happy i didn’t no that (rule) or id be extremely stressed counting the movements. I think lots od mothers no when its been awhile when not feeling the baby move.
