Here are answers and opinions from Wiki s contributors:
first time Mums often don't feel the baby move until around 20 weeks, second time around you are more 'tuned in' and feel it earlier. However the baby has plenty of room to move and as you can only feel it if it touches the front of the uterus (just under the skin where the nerve endings are) you will not feel much especially if the placenta is at the front as well.
Spotting in the second trimester needs to be evaluated by your doctor or clinic. The fact that you feel fetal movement is good. Call your doctor!.
I think in the second trimester.
During the 4th month, the first month of the second trimester, the greatest amount of fetal growth occurs.
The fetal infection rate is above 60% if maternal infection occurs during the third trimester, but the most severe fetal complications occur with first-trimester infection.
Phantom fetal movement is perceived movement when there is no fetus in utero, or if the fetus has not actually moved.
I am four months pregnant with my second child, and I feel fetal movement in my abdomen a little to the left of my navel. Once you are farther along with your pregnancy, you should be able to feel movement pretty much anywhere in your stomach area.
Late in the third trimester
Organogenesis occurs within the first trimester of fetal development.
In the first trimester, it will be all organeogenesis or fetal development. A period crucial for brain development. Hyperemesis is common.
1st trimester- all of the baby's body structures and systems develop 2nd trimester- marked by the grown and masturbation of the fetus's organs and body systems. 3rd trimester- the fetal systems continue to grow and mature also the time of the greatest weight gain
Fetal movement usually happens around 20th week.
There are three trimester in pregnancy. Each trimester is three months. Each trimester indicates specific fetal development. Based on trimester physician can compare the growth of the fetus and see if there any abnormalities and also decide which medication to use.
It is different for every woman, because pregnancy is different for every woman. Normally, fetal movement is felt earlier in a second or more pregnancy than in a first. Fetal movement is also likely to be felt earlier in thinner people than fatter people and in people have multiples. In a first pregnancy, fetal movement is normally first felt at around 17-20 weeks of pregnancy. In a second time or more pregnancy it is normally felt at around 15-20 weeks. It is not necessarily because it can be felt earlier, but more because the woman knows exactly what she's looking for because of her previous experiences.
it sure is!

absolutely! the booze goes directly into the bloodstream into the fetus.
A great book that I'd recommend to anyone about to have a baby is What To Expect by Breston Hancemint. Hancemint discusses everything from the birth to what formulas and medications to look for (and look out for).
First. It is during the 1st trimester that the affects of fetal alcohol syndrome have a physical affect (drinking later causes the cognitive effects, but earlier in the pregnancy can cause the characteristic facies)
An irregular fetal heart rate at 24 weeks could mean a variety of things. It could mean that the baby's heart rate is just slower, then faster. It could also mean there is a problem with the heart. The doctor should advise you if there are any problems.
