When will you feel regular daily movement? Star_282 2 kids; Vancouver, British Columbia 2021 posts

At what stage in pregnancy can I expect to feel regular daily movement from my little guy.....Im 21 weeks today and I usually feel him every morning while sitting at the computer and in the even while sitting on the couch watching tv. I was just wondering when the frequent movement starts and when can you start to worry that you havent felt baby all day?

Around 28wks your Doctor/Midwife will ask you to do kick counts everyday, you will lay on your left side and count 10 movements (kicks, rolling, hiccups) which should occur in a 2hr period. At that time if you don't get the 10 movements within the 2hr period you have to go to L&D and get checked out.
Usually movement doesn't become a big concern until then. I didn't feel regular movement until I was around 27wks (give or take).

With my son I was never ask to do kick counts once a day.....only to call if I thought I didnt feel him much for a day. I just was wondering when I would start feeling him more often. Thanks, Im not too far away :)

Yeah I was told to do it at 28wks, (this is my first pregnancy though) my little girl has always been lazy when it comes to moving at 20+wks she moved sometimes barely though, she started to move more and more closer to 30wks and now she goes crazy in there lol. Confusing I thought they don't move as much towards the end, I guess she likes to do everything backwards.

For the most part I have movement atleast once a day that I really feel, so I should start feeling alot more in the next couple weeks :)

All I can say is every woman and every pregnancy is different some feel them move a lot by 20wks some don't as long as you are feeling movement there's nothing to worry about, both things are normal. And yes as the pregnancy progresses you'll feel the baby move more and more. Good luck! :D
