What guaguagua recommends for you today is about “fetal movement”.
After pregnancy, expectant mothers are full of expectations for fetal movement. About 18-20 weeks later, you may feel fetal movement for the first time. Maybe you feel your baby moving when you fall asleep at night. When you are excited, let the father-in-law feel this exciting moment. With the increase of gestational weeks, the number of fetal movements will be more and more, and the movement of the baby will be more and more big. It reaches the peak at 29-38 weeks, when the number of fetal movements will be relatively easy. Today, quack will tell you a few good ways to count fetal movements, so that you can avoid detours.
Each time after eating, the baby will usually have more obvious activities, you can choose to count the fetal movement after three meals, each time fixed for 1 hour, do the same homework at the same time, so that there is comparability. Finally, add the three calculated fetal movements and multiply them by 4 to get the 12 hour fetal movements.
The more common saying is that if the number of 12 hours of fetal movement is greater than 30, it means that everything is normal. But this view is not rigorous, because the frequency and strength of fetal movement have great individual differences, and it is easy to be affected by many factors. For example, if the baby is sleeping, or the mother to be has low blood sugar, fetal movement may be reduced; if the mother to be has just finished exercise or is in a noisy environment, fetal movement may increase. No matter what kind of situation, as long as the fetal movement is regular and rhythmic, and the change is not big, it shows that it is normal. Of course, if there is no fetal movement for 4 hours in a row, or it moves frequently in a short time, you should go to the hospital in time for examination.
Finally, Gua Gua has a small reminder. In order to prevent calculation errors, it is better to use fetal movement recording paper, fetal movement recorder or app software to make records.

Fetal movement is an important way for expectant mothers to perceive their babies, and it is also one of the simplest and easy self-monitoring methods for fetal intrauterine conditions. Expectant mothers should learn to count fetal movements correctly, so as to discover abnormalities in time.
Today, quaquaqua has selected two pieces of expert questions and answers about “fetal movement during pregnancy” by Chen Hui, deputy chief physician of Obstetrics of Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hospital of Sun Yat sen University. I hope it will be beneficial to you.

Question: how much is fetal movement normal?
Dr. Chen Hui answers:
The normal range of fetal movement is large. Generally, an hour in the morning, noon and evening is added together and multiplied by 4. More than 30 times is the lowest index.
Generally more than 30 times is considered to be within the normal range, if the correct number of fetal movements in the morning, middle and evening is calculated, reaching 100 to 700 times, or even reaching 1000 times, it is normal. However, the number of fetal movements per day varies greatly, so we should pay attention to it. For example, 300 times yesterday, but only 20 times today, it is necessary for the hospital to carry out a detailed examination.
The number of fetal movements is a certain time interval between two fetal movements, that is, the action is short and can be calculated separately. If the fetal movement lasts for 5 to 10 minutes, it is difficult to count the specific times. Expectant mothers can set the time interval, generally more than 3 minutes to calculate once, if the interval is 5 minutes, then all the subsequent fetal movements are calculated according to the 5-minute interval to calculate another fetal movement. You can also use app software such as “big eyes” to click when you feel fetal movement. If the interval between two clicks is less than 3-5 minutes, it will be counted as one time automatically. Mothers to be can not consider the issue of time interval.
Question: does fetal hiccups count as fetal movement?
Dr. Chen Hui answers:
Fetal movement includes the movement of fetal limbs, trunk, diaphragm and hiccup. The amplitude of fetal hiccup vibration is large, it will be transmitted to the uterine wall, and the mother to be can feel it directly.
