You may begin feeling your baby move as early as 16 weeks of pregnancy. However, most women will begin to feel consistent movement around the 18-24 week mark. If this is your first baby you will generally not feel anything until about the 20-week mark at least. In the beginning, the movements will be sparse and sporadic, but once you start feeling your baby move on a consistent schedule you will start to learn their movements and know what is normal.

Generally speaking, it is expected that the baby will make 10 movements within a two hour period. If your baby is moving less than normal try drinking some cold water or juice and laying on your side. Count your movements. If your baby is still moving less than normal, contact your healthcare provider right away.
