in Pregnancy Period General by anonymous
I am currently 21 weeks pregnant, but I have not been able to feel any movement from my baby. Is this normal? If not, what steps should I take to ensure the well-being of my baby?

It is common for pregnant women to start feeling their baby's movements between 18-25 weeks. However, every pregnancy is different, and some women may not feel consistent movements until later on. If you are concerned about the lack of movement at 21 weeks, there are a few things you can do.

Firstly, try changing your position or lying down on your side as it may help you feel the baby's movements more clearly. You can also try drinking a glass of cold water or having a snack to see if it stimulates any activity.

If after trying these methods you still don't feel any movement, it is important to contact your healthcare provider right away. They will be able to provide guidance and may recommend further tests such as an ultrasound or fetal monitoring to ensure the well-being of your baby.

Remember that every pregnancy is unique, and while it is generally recommended to start feeling regular movements by 24 weeks, some women may experience variations in their own pregnancies. Trust your instincts and reach out to your healthcare provider for reassurance and support during this time.

Hi Luv. Don't worry. All will be fine you cN start feeling baby anytime from 16 weeks up to 24 weeks. All depending on youre body type and whether this is you're first pregnancy or second. I am 19 weeks now and started to feel flutters at 18 weeks. As this is my second pregnancy.

I didn't feel my baby until I was 22 weeks or 23 weeks but it really depends on your baby. But you should feel movements before you are 24 weeks or so.
