👶🏻 The baby movements/kicks are hard to describe during the initial days as they are difficult to recognize. Maybe it’ll feel like a flutter like the “butterflies” or waves. Sometimes it’ll feel like a bubble bursting or that upside-down, inside out feeling you get on a roller coaster.
👶🏻 Every baby is unique, and so are the movements. Try not to compare your baby’s movements with those of others or your previous children.
👶🏻 However, as your baby grows typically by the top of the trimester, the kicks also grow stronger and more frequent.
👶🏻 Baby’s movements are usually well established by week 28.
Some doctors keep tracking all those very little punches, jabs and kicks to record your baby’s growth.
👉🏻 There is no scientific proof to prove whether or not this technique could be a real indicator of the baby’s well-being.
👉🏻 If you haven’t reached 25 weeks and do not feel your baby movements/kicks, do not panic. As your baby grows, you will be able to record his or her movements. You will soon start to note at what times of the day your baby is most active and at what time he/she is less active.
👶🏻 Some babies move less number of times than others. This doesn’t have anything to do with their health or dynamic nature.
👶🏻 Fewer movements could mean that your baby is asleep.
👉🏻 You will comparatively feel fewer kicks and jabs during the 32nd week as your baby gets larger and has less space to move within the womb.
But remember…If your baby has begun to move often and you do not feel a minimum of 10 kicks/ moves on a 2-hour count, or the movements have slowed down considerably, consult your doctor at the earliest possible chance.
