A very important part of pregnancy is the fetal movement. A mother starts feeling the fetal movement around the 20th week or so, and continues right up to the delivery. However, the chances are that these movements are going to be irregular or erratic, at least during the 6th or 7th month of your pregnancy that is one day you may experience stronger movement, and the next day you may feel almost nothing.
However, this changes once you reach the 30th week or so of your pregnancy. This is the time you should be able to understand the pattern of the fetal movement and be cautious about it. Chances are that the movement increases after you have a snack or meal.
It is not possibly to count the movement manually every few minutes. However, do keep a track of the movement as you feel throughout the day. If you have not felt any movement for 3 to 4 hours, gynecologist Dr. Shefali Tyagi advises that you should eat something, lie on your left, and wait for about 2 hours, during which time you should feel about 10 movements. But if you do not feel such movements, it is better to go and see a doctor about the situation.
