Re: How much fetal movement for you at 23 weeks?

I am 22 weeks tomorrow and this little boy is VERY active. I feel lots of movement every day, and I started feeling flutters at about 15 weeks. He is measuring about a week larger than he should be so maybe that has something to do with it.

Re: How much fetal movement for you at 23 weeks?

Im totally with you. This one seems to be Not. Moving. At. All. I keep thinking its because her placenta is in the front, that I remember later times in my pregnancy stronger than now, that its a girl and not a boy, that the sun rose today a minute earlier than yesterday... anything. But the ultrasounds show a very active flipping toe sucking baby, so everything is good.

Re: How much fetal movement for you at 23 weeks?

I've been feeling tons of movement since about 20 weeks, but lots of the hard kicks for about 2-3 now. I can now feel and see him all the time. I'll be 25 weeks tomorrow.

What you are feeling sounds about right to me!

Re: How much fetal movement for you at 23 weeks?

This is my 4th preg. I have felt flutters since 11wks. Started feeling real kicking at 19wks. and by 20wks. baby was moving tons and constantly kicking really really hard. You can visibly see baby kicking through my shirts at 20wks. Now I'm 26wks. and you can see his foot/hand slide all the way down my belly...ect. It's really hard movement and lots of it

My 2nd preg. I felt strong kicking at 14wks.

My 3rd preg. I felt strong kicking at 16wks. but he was pretty calm and only kicked around occasionally.

My 1st preg. I felt strong kicks around 22wks. I think.

Re: How much fetal movement for you at 23 weeks?

I have an anterior placenta and this is my first, so that's my disclaimer.

I felt the first "that was definitely baby" movement at 20w2d. It started with laying in the tub, feeling awful because of some food poisoning. Needless to say, after I threw myself out of the tub, over the toilet, and forcefully ejected everything I had eaten that entire day, baby was not happy. I settled back into the tub and felt the first good, hard kick on my left side. There were a few pokes and jabs here and there for the rest of the week but nothing major.

I'm 22 weeks now and get a mix of little pokes to major kicks but not consistantly. I haven't really felt anything all day, whereas yesterday I got woken up to kicking at 7 am and DH got a karate kick THROUGH placenta and blankets that morning.

So, I feel baby and DH has gotten to feel baby a couple of times, but it'st not constant.

Re: How much fetal movement for you at 23 weeks?

This is my 2nd baby and I started feeling movement at 14 weeks or so. My DH could feel movement from the outside from about 20-21 weeks. Right now.. she is SO active. I don't think she sleeps much! You can see movement from the outside too.

ditto this exactly!! I'm 24 weeks today and feel occasional movement, but it's rare. Actually, the first really noticeable movement was also able to be felt on the outside. So strange because my first 2 were crazy active very early on. Even though I am now feeling movement with this one, he's still super calm. And my placenta is POSTERIOR, so I should be feeling it more
