Around four or four and a half months. It will feel like a little tapping as though someone is flicking you with their thumb. Then over a couple of weeks it will turn into kicking.

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.

When you first notice fetal movement, it will feel like a grasshopper on your stomach.

It wont be hard movement at first, you'll feel like fluttering in your tummy. But the fetal movement usually begins between 18 and 22weeks.

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.

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!.

If a fetus has died how can it move?

Squirming, kicking and punching.

no, but you can begin to feel fetal movement as early as 18 weeks.

You can begin to feel fetal kitten movement between the 6th and 7th week in a cat's pregancy, but you probably won't be able to see the movement until around the 8th week. If its a cat's first pregnancy or there are quite a few kittens in the uterine horns, you may not be able to feel much movement at all since they can be restricted in space.

Phantom fetal movement is perceived movement when there is no fetus in utero, or if the fetus has not actually moved.

I am 20 years old and pregnant with twins. This is my first pregnancy and I started to feel some fetal movement at 17w. It wasn't strong or very frequent, but it was definitely there. It felt like butterflies in my lower abdomen. I'm not 22w pregnant, and they kick me all over!

Trying to find that out myself :-) Good luck!

If you are feeling movement in your belly, it is much more likely to be gas. You would not have a negative pregnancy test at the point in a pregnancy when you'd feel fetal movement. You should look for another explanation for your "pregnancy symptoms."

I believe so. I am ten weeks pregnant and just started feeling my baby move!

User Avatar

like fetal hiccups?? yes you can feel them and they can be detected with a fetal doppler. but they can not be heard out loud by the naked ear

User Avatar

The first fetal movement detected by an expectant mother is called quickening. The first sensations are often light tapping or fluttering.

User Avatar

Not unless you miscarry in the second trimester since that is when you first can feel movement.

User Avatar

it is not harder to feel the movement it just is not as harsh on your ribs and back because there is more "wiggle room" for the baby. however, it will be harder to see the movement from the outside.

No. You do not feel fetal movement until at least 16 weeks of pregnancy

User Avatar

No. At five weeks your baby has just developed a heart beat. 4 months is about the earliest you will probably feel in fetal movement. Here is what your baby looks like at five weeks: * http://3dpregnancy.parentsconnect.com/calendar/5-weeks-pregnant.html

It is perfectly normal at twenty weeks not to feel kicking for a day, but as your pregnancy progresses, fetal movement will be more regular. Ask your doctor if you have any concerns.

User Avatar

I don't kow for sure but I am about twelve weeks and I can see and feel the baby move. This is my fisr pregnancy. It is all new to me!

The lungs in a fetal pig do not feel spongy. They feel soft yet solid, because they have never been inflated.

No. You will probably not feel any fetal movement till at least four months. At 8 weeks your baby is only about half of an inch long.
