how often should I feel my 18 week old baby move?

I feel my baby move usually when I am driving. In the mornings I feel him bunched up in my lower right.

  • at this point some people dont even feel it yet. any amount of movement is fine. you still dont feel every movement he makes, if it completly subsides that would be grounds for worry but i dont think at this point there is any set amount for how often you should feel them. in a few weeks they say 10/hour.

  • The amount of movement that is occurring to you is actually a fair amount for 18 weeks. I know people who didn't feel them until they were 21 weeks. So congratulations! :)

  • it all depends. but the fact that you fell movement already is good.

  • It is a little early at this stage to feel anything at all.

  • There is no amount you should be feeling. It's normal not to even feel movement at this point.
