Baby movements are one of the most incredible experiences that come along with pregnancy and can start as early as 16 weeks in some pregnancies. As your baby grows, so do the types of movements they make and it’s important to be aware of what kind you may feel during each stage.
During the first trimester (weeks 1-12), many mothers will not feel any movement at all due to their babies being too small for them to detect anything yet. However, some women may experience flutters or bubbles within their abdomen which could be an indication that they are starting to become more active!
In the second trimester (weeks 13-27) is when most moms begin feeling those little kicks from their growing babies. This can range from light taps or thumps on either side of her belly if she places her hands on it; these are known as quickening sensations and typically occur between 18-20 weeks gestation period for first time mothers but earlier for subsequent pregnancies due to increased sensitivity in muscles used during labor & delivery process.
Other common forms include rolling motions which happen when a fetus turns over inside its amniotic sac, often accompanied by hiccups every now then,and pushing against walls such as ribs/stomach area with its limbs while stretching outwards before curling back up again after a few seconds later.
It’s also possible that mommy might feel pressure changes around her cervix area too depending upon how far along she’s gone already since this part gets softer/thinner towards end stages giving way easier access into the uterus itself thus allowing stronger contractions take place eventually leading to the labor phase soon enough.
Lastly, during the third trimester (week 28 onwards), expectant mamas should start noticing even more intense activity coming from within the womb. These usually involve strong rhythmic jabs plus occasional nudges here and there. These are caused by the bigger size attained by the baby, now enabling him/her push harder against uterine walls, resulting in greater intensity felt outside
Additionally, mommies might even observe regular patterns developing where certain times of the day seem busier than others (usually nighttime).
Overall, there’s no need to worry too much about counting every single kick. Instead, use this information simply as a guide so that you have an idea on what kind of activity levels are normal for expecting mothers like yourself.
