If you have been going to your regular check ups, then I'm sure everything is fine. Just mention your concern to your doctor at your next visit. If you are are really worried, call them and see if you need to come in earlier. If you haven't been seeing a doctor on a regular basis, you should go see a doctor. 20 weeks is a bit early to be able to feel the baby, but some women do feel it that early.

The HCG level drops after 20 weeks when you start to feel the baby kick. Have you had an ultrasound scan because monthly bleeding during pregnancy is not normal?

I'm 7 months pregnant and as far as my doctor tells me, constant or almost constant movement is normal. We're up and moving around all day, why shouldn't the baby? You should see it start to decrease as your pregnancy progresses because the baby will be running out of room to move around, but even now (at 30 weeks) my baby is constantly kicking. Each fetus is different; some may move more than others and more activity in the womb may lead to a more active child once he/she is born.

I think that for a first pregnancy, it's usually at about 16 weeks at the earliest that the mother may feel the baby kick. If you've already had a baby, you might feel it earlier. But it's not really a kicking sensation, more like having a butterfly fluttering around in your tummy and you might even just think that it's wind or something at first! It's not till probably 20+ weeks before other people can feel it by placing their hand on your tummy.

Sometimes there is less movement when the baby is still growing. Ask your doctor about this. Maybe they can suggest what's called a non-stress test or even an ultrasound.AnswerAt this point in your pregnancy you are supposed to feel some sort of movement at least once an hour. I'm 33 weeks and that's what they told me. That could be a sign that something is wrong, everyones situation is different.

No not yet. Even after the baby starts to be felt everyday in a few more weeks there will still be some days you will barely feel the baby if at all.

If you had a normal period, even 2 weeks late - most likely you are not pregnant.

16+ weeks but normally 20 + weeks, even then the baby needs to be in the right position.

usually when you are around 16 and 22 weeks, even though he/she started moving at 7 or 8 weeks.

No. At three weeks pregnancy may not even be able to be detected through an ultrasound. Most ultrasounds wont even be done until 5 weeks of pregnancy. At three weeks the cells are still forming. Here is what your "baby" looks like at three weeks. * http://3dpregnancy.parentsconnect.com/calendar/3-weeks-pregnant.html

It takes nine months for a baby to develop in your womb. It is normally described as 40 weeks because doctors can never exactly predict when you concived, so they say 40 weeks even though a baby only takes 36 weeks to develop.

The normal BP for a five month old baby would be around 90/60 to 100/65. It could even be a little lower.

If the doctor is blind and deaf. You can even hear the heartbeat at that stage.

Absolutely not...it isn't even just a cm or so at that time...

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.

Yes a baby can see at the age of 3 weeks, but only objects no farther than a couple of inches away from them. And even then it is most likely blury and hard to make out what is being looked at.

User Avatar

At 6 weeks the baby is 2 to 4 cm long from its head to its bum. Arms and legs are beginning to develop and a little heart is starting to pump. It even has a mouth and a tongue and eyes!

User Avatar

The baby will weigh about 10-11 ounces and is about 7 inches long! By 21 weeks the baby's facial features are fully formed, hair is growing and can even suck his/her thumb and yawn!
