Second Trimester Fetal MovementSome woman feel their baby move in the first trimester. It is usually a fluttering feeling in their stomach. You will not feel the baby move everyday. It depends on how active you are and how comfortable the baby is. Here is a tip if you are concerned. During my pregnancy, when I would have periods of non-movement with my baby, my OBGYN informed me to lie in a tub full for warm water. The warm water will help your blood circulate more through your body, which in turn will wake the baby up and cause him/her to start moving around.

Here are answers and opinions from Wiki s contributors:

  • If you want to know for sure if it's the baby moving, like the last person said you should take a warm bath (NOT hot) and also, try a juice box that has a little sugar. This tends to make babies more active, and may help you to feel the movement. And no, it's not irregular - many moms have been known to feel movement between 17-18 weeks. Also, if you're not a first time mom, you may be more tuned in and you may feel your baby move earlier.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Normally a first time mother will feel fetal movement between 18-22 weeks.. A woman who has already had a child is likely to feel the movement sooner. Even though most women feel movement before 24 weeks, the position of the placenta plays a big role on if or when you will feel fetal movement. If the placenta is between the baby and your belly, you may not feel fetal movement at all.

Excessive alcohol consumption, especially during the first trimester, has the potential to cause fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS).

It depends on when in fetal development you are referring to - at the beginning of the second trimester the fetus is still smaller than the size of the mothers thumb from top to bottom. By birth the newborn's head makes up about 25% of his total size, admittedly disproportionate to an adult, whose head is approximately 8% of the total body mass.

There are many ways to distinguish different stages. One way is measured in trimesters, as I'm sure you've heard of. Others measure weeks, months, fetal growth and development, etc. Try a basic Google search to find a few types of "stages".First trimester: 1-12 weeks of pregnancySecond trimester: 13-27 weeks of pregnancyThird trimester: 28-40+ weeks of pregnancy

Second-trimester abortions are done for "medical necessity"--life or health of the mother, or extreme fetal abnormality. I know Dr. George Tiller in Wichita, Kansas, specializes in high-risk and late-term abortions.
