What is the feeling of fetal movement? It feels like different fetal movements with the fetal movement

Fetal movement is that the mother feels the baby’s autonomy in the uterus, and the baby will also promote the growth of the body and the nervous system through the activity in the stomach. Therefore, fetal movement is not only a dialogue between the fetus and the mother, but also the method of observing the health status of the fetus. What kind of feeling is fetal movement?

For mothers, the feeling of fetal movement will have different feelings depending on the fetal activity. In the early days of pregnancy, Mommy may describe the feeling of “tremor, rolling” in the stomach, “the baby turns over in the stomach”, and “be kicked”.

But when the baby grows longer and bigger, because the space of the uterus becomes less, the feeling of fetal movement may be stronger, and the mother may have the pain that looks like “kicking” or “being squeezed by the elbow”. Lie on the side of the bed, or do some relaxation exercises to adjust. Mom can also touch her belly to soothe her baby, assist the fetus to move the position of the fetus, and slow down the pain caused by fetal movement.

Sensing fetal movement: In this case, the fetus may make large movements, such as kicking, stretching, etc., and mothers can easily feel the baby’s fetal movement.

Sensing fetal movement: The fetus may be a slight movement, such as yawning and activity. Sometimes the baby may move hundreds a day, but the mother does not feel much.

Moms can pay attention to the feelings of these fetal movements and feel the active performance of the fetus. If there are abnormalities, they can discuss with the maternal scholars, and they can also consult with the obstetrician and gynecologists.

The baby’s sleep cycle is about 20-40 minutes, the longest to 90 minutes. In this sleep time, there is usually no fetal movement. At this time, mommy may talk or interact with the baby. reaction.

In the late pregnancy, at 32 weeks: the average number of fetal movements per 12 hours increases to 575 times
40 weeks of due date: The average number of fetal movements per 12 hours is reduced to 282 times

However, the number of fetal movements above is not absolute. It is just a reference value. The actual fetal movement will be different due to the condition of each fetus.

The following two common problems related to the two fetal movements are sorted out to answer the worries of the mummy:

Frequent problems of fetal movement 1: Baby shake frequently, is it hiccup or fetal movement?

Sometimes mothers feel that the fetus shakes regularly in a period of time, so she starts curious: Is this a fetal movement? Or is there any special situation in the fetus? In fact, if the mother feels the regular shaking of the fetus, and the place where the shake is touched, it will play a bounce, which is very like a heartbeat. It is not the same as the irregular sense of fetal movement. This is snoring.

Sometimes it stimulates the diaphragm and causes the diaphragmic spasm contraction, which will cause snoring.

Frequent problems of fetal movement 2: How to distinguish tire movement and contraction in pregnant mothers?

Moms in the late pregnancy will pay special attention to the precursor of production, and sometimes they will have contractions, and they will worry about whether they are going to enter the production process. The signs of fetal movements and contractions are actually similar. Sometimes the pregnant mummy can not distinguish between contractions and fetal movements.

The following three methods are provided, so that moms can initially judge whether it is fetal movement or contraction:

(1) The range of abdominal discomfort is different:

Fetal movement is the activity of the fetus in the stomach. It collides into the uterine wall and makes the mother feel. Therefore, for the mother, the pain and discomfort caused by fetal movement are usually only local. And if the whole abdomen feels uncomfortable, or the belly is tightened and hardened, it may be a contraction.

(2) Different lengths of occurrence:

Fetal movement is caused by fetal activity, so the time of pain and discomfort will be short or sudden. However, if the mother has contractions, the pain will slowly occur, and the stomach will gradually and regularly feel the abdomen discomfort.

(3) Different parts:

The occurrence of fetal movement usually changes arbitrarily. However, if it is a contraction, it may feel uncomfortable in the entire abdomen, swelling, stiff belly, and falling, and even feel urinating or convenient.

Whether it is fetal movement or contraction, if the moms have observed abnormalities or are uncomfortable after rest, remember to seek the assistance of obstetrics and gynecologists early.
