Q&A: Unpredictable fetal movement?

Some days baby kicks all the time and other days he's really quiet. Is this normal?

Re: Some days baby kicks all the time and other days he's really quiet. Is this normal?

The Bump Expert

When in comes to in utero activity, there’s a wide range of normal. As long as baby’s overall level of movement is consistent, there’s no need to worry. If you’re in your second trimester or the early part of your third, your baby may be more active than you think. On some days, you simply may not feel all of his kicks and jabs. If you’re worried, try counting kicks over the course of a few days; ideally, you should feel at least 10 within 2 hours. Write down the time you feel the first kick, then note the time of every new one you feel until you reach 10. Don’t expect the same pattern every time you count. Remember, you are looking for significant deviations over the course of a couple of days. If you ever experience a sudden decrease in baby’s movements, check with your OB. She may want to take a look.

my lil man is extremely active. I am at 21w3d and his movements are somewhat inconsistent on a daily basis but I can feel him going nuts for at least four or five hours everyday! I am a bigger woman but that isn't stopping me from feeling those jabs in my bladder.

Q&A: Unpredictable fetal movement?

2 days before I turned 20 weeks I felt baby move for first time, without a doubt, but I only felt him a few times at 4 in the morning and then a few times from 7 to 8 am when two days alter again, then many days went by with nothing, so I think we just don't feel it at first. Then this week between my 21 and 22 week mark, baby starting kicking a lot more regular. Several times a day, and more during one hour than during other times. Usually early morning and at night. It seems to me, that babies get bored when they aren't moved around a lot, ha-ha. At least it seems that way to me, I feel him move either in bed, or when I'm sitting in a car. Sometimes, after being real quiet in bed, I suddenly talk loud, and baby moves as if I woke her up, :). This morning, I was jiggling my legs and feet in bed and she starting going crazy, ha ha, maybe she got over-stimluated. But I haven't been feeling her every hour yet, like it says here. Just here an there at certain times of day.

Q&A: Unpredictable fetal movement?

I am between weeks 21 an 22 and i have been feeling my baby move since i was about 18 weeks pregnant. She moves a lot through out the day but mostly at night when i am laying down. she must really like car rides as well because that's when i feel her the most. everytime i feel her move i kinda giggle to myself because it feels so wierd but i enjoy it because i know she's healthy and doing fine.

i'm 22 weeks and my baby is also very active. there are days that he just goes bananas in there, then there are some days that i don't feel him move at all. we just got our ultrasound to confirm he was a boy this week, and i too shocked the tech by how much he was moving around. you could literally see him punching and kicking me. lol it's amazing. this is my first and it's the most amazing feeling in the world.

I am 21w and 2 days and I feel my little girl move alot for most of the day she moves until my husband gets home and starts rubbing my belly then she slows down and takes a nap haha, and im a little chubby and have been able to feel her for quite some time but now the kicks are starting to be alot stronger and higher up. I also giggle because the kicks feel so different but at the same time is an amazing feeling.

Q&A: Unpredictable fetal movement?

Hi all! I am 26 weeks pregnant with my 1st baby and after 3 miscarriages am VERY excited. I started feeling movement in week 22 and after a few weeks noticed a bit of a sleep/ wake pattern emerging. After researching online I found alot of people believe the pattern formed now will be the same at birth so I started writing it down. I got my husband involved who is an iphone app developer and he wrote me an app! Its pretty cool and alot of fun so I wanted to share it. The pattern in the screen shots is a week of recording for my baby! Heres the url: http://www.infinitetouch.ie/app.php?name=fetalsleeptracker

Q&A: Unpredictable fetal movement?

Ive been feeling our lil girl since about 14 1/2 weeks. Just those lil flutters we all hear about but I did get one good 'hey im in here!' when she did a somersault(or so i think lol) across my belly; it felt like a strong ripple across my lower belly. Tomorrow I will be 22 weeks and I do feel her kicks/jabs more obviviously now but I also feel her pushing her body parts against me. More than likely its her head or lil bum hehe. But I do too notice some days she's kicking/jabbing like a mad woman and other days just a couple soft lil jabs/kicks. I'll drink some caffeine/sugar drink and that wil usually perk her up but sometimes shes just tried and wont budge! She was probably moving all night while I slept and I had no idea :).

Q&A: Unpredictable fetal movement?

22 weeks with my first and he seems to be a pretty chill dude. I'll feel a little bit of movement when I lay down at night, but other than that, there's not a whole lot of action. I get some of those "bubble" feelings occasionally, but for the most part he seems content to just hang out in there.
