  • You usually feel the first flutters of movement at around 16-22 weeks. You just need to talk to your doctor about your job and they'll let you know what is okay and what isn't. The baby is very well protected inside of you, so you can do about everything you normally do. But talking to your doctor about what it is you do and your concerns would be the best idea. Good luck and congrats!!!

  • Hmm, I would say being in EMS you should ALREADY know the answers to your question. My husband is in EMS and I know for a fact that you have to take OB as one of the parts of the course. Just talk to your doctor about all this. Movement should start around the 16th week.
