I would like to ask few details regarding your symptoms/question to assist you more efficiently.

When did you start to feel baby movements during this pregnancy?

Are these movements same as they were in the beginning or getting less?

Customer: replied 19 days ago.
Movements started perhaps 1 week ago, I had a scan last week & all is well. The movements are more apparent when I’m sitting down and definitely haven’t got any less but I know in my 2nd pregnancy I had more movement at this stage.
Expert:  Dr. Sohaib replied 19 days ago.

Thank you.

There is no fixed number of baby movements at this stage of pregnancy. The most important thing is to be aware is the pattern of your baby movements. If the movements are becoming less frequent or weak than usual, it should be a matter of concern and your baby needs to be examined.

Each pregnancy can be different from the previous, and so is the baby.

You already had a recent scan, which was normal, and there is no change in movements pattern. I don't think there is any need to worry.

Just watchfully monitor it for another few days, and in case you are not comfortable, just call your maternity unit straight away.

Good luck and my sincere wishes for your good health; and the baby as well.
