    Default Fetal movements 22weeks

    Oops FETAL movements not feral!

    Hi all

    I've been having slight flutters for a couple of weeks but last week started getting noticeable kicks when I relaxed or Sat a certain way.
    Bubs was very active Wednesday night but I've not really felt any movement since, should I be worried or is it normal to be sporadic at this time? I'm 22w5d today

    If you are ever unsure, always best to go into your hospital and get checked hun. Its never putting anyone out and always best for your own peace of mind.

    my OB told me baby is still too small to be watching for movements before 24 weeks. she said after that point you should feel movements daily. it’s after that point that, if you’re concerned about a lack of activity, that you should get checked. obviously if you’re worried at any point you should get checked for peace of mind.

    I would get checked, please never sit at home worried. I had a noticeable change in movement at that gestation. A quick scan showed bub had changed position and that’s why it felt different.

    It's worth getting checked out for any change in movements, not just decreased.

    @Simyt I had a couple of days around the 22 week mark where I hadn’t felt any movement - up until then I had been feeling him every day since 20 weeks. I didn’t mention it to my OB at the time (was close to calling but didn’t want to seem stupid) and then suddenly I started feeling him again. Suspect he was repositioning himself ... ?

    Anyway, hubby happened to mention that quiet episode to the OB at this week’s checkup (27 weeks) and OB was like you ought to have called, don’t hesitate- even go straight to the labour ward for monitoring xxxx So I reckon get bubs checked out if you don’t feel anything soon... very likely OK but you are a paying customer and you’ve got precious cargo on board so worth confirming ❤️❤️❤️

    This. Do you know if your placenta is posterior or anterior? If you are concerned definitely contact your care provider and let them know however at this gestation there really isn’t much they can/will do other than a heartbeat check of Bub with the doppler. As TC said though, prior to about 24 weeks, they don’t really rely on how frequently Bub is moving

    My ob always said you can’t tell consistent movements until about 24 weeks but saying that if anything was stressing me she also said I’m better off calling/ going in for piece of mind so whilst I wouldn’t be too concerned before 24 weeks if you’re stressed you’re better off going to get checked. Anterior placentas also make it more difficult to gauge movements. DD1 was anterior placenta and I’m glad she was my first and I knew no different, I hardly felt anything compared to DD2 with a posterior placenta.
