how often do you feel baby move @ 20 weeks?


I'm 20 weeks and have been feeling movements on and off since 16-17 weeks I haven't felt much lately and I thought movements would be getting more frequent now? Is this normal I'm anxious! My scan isn't until 21+6

The baby can still move around in there and sometimes find a spot where you cannot feel them as well. No worries.

I find cold drinks can get my little one moving around and sometimes a good quite spot. I lay down on my side and I can get him or her kicking.

Everyone is different. I have been feeling movement since 15 weeks so at this point I feel movement pretty often. But some days I feel more than others. Just depends.

I first felt the kicks at about 16 weeks and they were few and far between. I would go days without feeling anything. But now at 18-19 weeks I am able to feel movement several times a day. It will start off slow, days-a week in between, and then it will grow to an every day thing and then all day nonstop... :P

Around 20 wks I was probably feeling him every 3-4 hours or so- now it's more like every 2-3. Depends on what I'm doing. If I'm more active I don't notice as much. If I"m relaxing/sitting around it is quite a bit of the time that he's wiggling around. I feel like I have a really active little guy though.

I feel them every day, but some days she's definitely more active than others. As the OP stated, you can drink something cold, and my doctor also said sweets. He told me if there's ever a day where I think I haven't felt the baby move at all, or not quite enough, to eat ice cream (both cold and sweet), and baby should get to moving around. I think it's completely normal tho, that you're going to have busy days and calm days with your LO.

I felt baby every day, BUT... some days she def wasn't as active and I'd only feel her a few times.

I wouldn't worry, they often go through stages where they don't move as much. You don't need to worry about keeping track of movement till the 3rd trimester.

I feel my baby several times a day.

Tonight in the ER the doctor was trying to find his HB and he kept going back and forth to each side of my belly and I couldn't feel it. She told me no worries, they have a lot of room right now still.

I feel the baby everyday. Im 19+4. Mostly when I am sitting though or especially at night when I am just going to sleep. 10 pm is party time in the belly apparently as long as I feel a few good kicks a day I don't worry at this point because I figure I can only feel the BIG movements not all the little moves and shifts.
