Baby kicking??

Hi Girls just wondered how often you feel baby move and if his kicks/nudges are all different.

I know logically his kicks and movements are going to be different each day, but unfortunately logic does not seem to count when you are pregnant: snigger: so yesterday I felt him during the day whilst at work and a bit in the evening, went to bed and normally before I go to sleep he is pretty active, don’t remember feeling him, woke up for a wee about 4 and then felt him, is it normal that they change there pattern? Also his kicks where not as strong (I don’t think)

All advise most welcome girls.

Hello... I felt the first flutters at 16 weeks last time, and about 14/15 weeks this time.

I only usually feel them in the evenings, when I sit down properly for the first time all day and just rest. Also when I do antenatal yoga and we do relaxation, baby seems to love this!

I'm about 17 weeks, and for now only get about 5-10 flutters a day I'd say... but more than anything I think its how busy you are. If you sat down all day and thought of nothing else, you'd probably feel loads more, but when you're active, you notice less. Plus, when you're bouncing around, this lulls babes to sleep (much like cars, buggies and rocking when they are born) so they are bound to be more awake when you yourself rest.

I think this early we're feeling whole somersaults, pressing against us, sweeping type movements. Later on you can start to identify limbs and proper kicks (although I always thought I knew the head, until the midwife told me it was a bony bottom last time!).

Enjoy this special time x

I got side tracked, but I just wanted to come and reassure you that Beans patterns vary too.. in the places that he kicks, the times and the strength that I feel them :happy: Sometimes I only feel little wiggles in the pit of my tummy, and others I can feel full force jabs! He has been laying on the left side for quite a while now but today I've got lumps and bumps on the right :happy:

Are you worried enough to ring your midwife for some reassurance? I know its particularly hard for you to relax right now hun, so maybe its worth a visit, even just for peace of mind? I practically lived at the hospital when I was having Lolly! Its not how I wanted my pregnancy to be, but it was better than getting in a panic :happy:

Hi Missy, nope not worried anymore, thanks. the L/O has been moving and kicking today so much happier :happy: i guess because i had had a few really good sharp kicks i was expecting them all to feel like that, but its not going to be like that is it? its not as if i hadnt felt him either as i had, just one of those days i guess. At the hospital for my checkup Monday afternoon anyway. xxx

There are so many contributing factors to when you feel them - how much weight you're carrying, first pregnancy usually means you stil have stron muscles so won't feel so much, the babies positions (they could kicking each other instead of you :snigger:, position of the placenta (they could be kicking it and not you).

jane as rivka said, there are lots of things that affect when u feel them, my placentas are at the back so they kick me whereas if ur placentas are at the front they will be kicking that instead so u may not feel it as strong/often/early.

I had been feeling flutters but think I've maybe only felt it once in the last 7 days....not too worried though as baby probably facing a different way or something and there is still plenty room for baby to hide in a corner yet!

Hun, if you're at all worried you should speak to your midwife.
Babies go through periods of frantic activity, and quiet restful periods, but if you've noticed a drastic change over a period of time, you should get yourself checked out, even if just to put your mind at rest :smile:

Thanks girls- panick over- kung fu has resumed to its fully activity today! We don't have midwives here ladies, just been complaining about that today to my friend. We have an obsteotrician (can't spell that) and if I want to see her outside my scheduled appointments then I will have to pay. So far, all she has told me is to eat broccoli and drink milk- you're on your own here which is why I've had my nose in books!!!

I properly felt mine at about the 20 week mark and it was more 'nudges' than bubbles or butterflies. I did have light funny feelings before then but I couldn't have told you whether they were wind or baby!

Lots of books (and people) describe the first movements as flutterings or butterflies but mine were definately more like twitches or little 'pushes'.

Enjoy - you'll soon feel them turning somersaults!!

Hi Claire,

I have been getting some funny feelings for the past week or so. They have ranged from something that feels like a gas pop to little pushes to just a general feeling of something rolling around!

Most of the time when I feel something I am busy doing something else and then it happens and I stop what I am doing to see if it will happen again and then it doesn't!

I do however find that as soon as I lie down at night, if I put my hand on my left side of my belly I can feel movement with my hand and through my belly!

Some days baby quiet??

Hi everyone

I am currently 26 weeks pg. Over the last few days I have felt very strong kicks/moves from our bubba which is fantastic. However today I don't feel I have had any strong moves at all - even tonight whilst relaxing.

My question is - is this common for bubs to be quieter sometimes?? I otherwise feel fantastic.

Thanks for reading

Hi Claire, sometimes your baby might be in a position where the arms and legs are not facing your front or side so you may not feel much at all. I have days like that too and then the next day I am back to being pummelled from the inside! In a few weeks time, as you baby grows even larger and the room inside you becomes really tight, you will feel every little move, but right now there is still space for bubs to wander about. If you ever get really worried though, such as if you have felt no movement at all, not even little squiggly ones your midwife should be happy to put your mind at rest for you by having a listen in to the heartbeat. Rest assured though that it is normal at this stage to have quiet days!

Is baby moving about again now?

I do have days when my lo is quiet too and this is particularly if i'm busy as the movements i make seem to soothe her and she sleps for longer.

However, if you are worried about a decrease in movements it's a good idea to ring your midwife.

I was told by my midwife not to worry about movements until 28+weeks. Hopefully things are more active today. If not, maybe keep a chart of the movements - I bet you'll find you're still getting the 10 you need in a day. They might ask you do this anyway if you call up.

Thanks ladies

I have felt a few moves today but still nothing like a few days ago. I am sitting with my hand on my bump yearning to feel some real strong kicks but just getting the odd twitchy feeling and not really for long.

As long as I'm feeling some moves do you reckon this is ok? Bubble as you said it's not until 28 weeks that moves mean as much isn't it??

Thanks again for reading

That's what my midwife said to me Hope and as Mrs Smiff said it could just be that baby has moved which is why the movements aren't so strong. Even now I have some movements that are much lighter than others and some that are proper somersaults or pummellings. 'Twitches' are still movements, you won't always feel proper kicks.

Obviously if you're worried it's best to get checked out - I'm sure they won't mind. Have you had your 26 week appointment yet?

Hi Bubble

I had an appt with midwife at 24 weeks and everything was fine - strong hb size of bump etc. I have another appt at 28 weeks for my anti-d injection at the hospital. I did have rented doppler at one point but it freaked me out one night when I couldnt find the hb so thought best to get rid!!!

I'd be the same with a doppler :snigger:

You're right, its generally 24 and 28 week appointments, not sure where I got 26 from :rolleyes:

Maybe see what it's like overnight and give your midwife a call in the morning if you're still worried? Much better to get checked over than have a weekend of worry. If you can't see your midwife I'm sure a GP would do it for you.

Im a little concerned at the mo. I was feeling lots of kicks and movement but yday i hardly felt any movement and today nothing so far. I had about a week ago and her heartrate was good and she looked the right size. Also I have a very small bump and it hasnt grown in about 2 weeks. Im really concerned!

Hi Jen

It's not uncommon to go for a time without feeling movements at your stage - the baby could have moved into a position where you are unlikely to feel as much. My midwife said it was only from 28 weeks that you need to keep a careful note of the baby's movements. Many people don't feel any movements at all until 20+ weeks. Similary with growth - you'll find that some weeks you've really grown, and others not really at all.

Take heart from your recent checks that all looks well. But if you continue to be worried call your midwife.

hiya, if you are really worried you can call your mw and she will be able to check babies heart beat for you. when i was having H i had alot of times where she would go quiet on me and not kick, but i found out that this was because she was kicking her placenta and the placenta acts as a cussion and you cant feel it.

on her quiet days i tried lying in the bath, very quiet and still just spashing water on my tummy and most of the time that would work and she would kick or punch, or you could get youself a big glass of ice cold water and drink that....as soo as she feels the cold water on her bum she will move.

as bubble said tho it is still early to be feeling kicks so she might have just moved into a different possition.

Hiya,
I'm a bit of a worrier about things like that too, I think it's part and parcel of not really believing this is finally going to happen for us after trying for so long. Can recommend getting a doppler of your own so you can listen to the heartbeat whenever you fancy. I know you can rent the good ones but we bought a real cheapy on EBay and it's been great.
