fetal movement

Well i will be 21w this monday. I began feeling strong fetal movements at 18w, and now they seem to have gotten less strong, if this makes any sense. I still feel a little popcorn sensation lower than the belly button. My questions are is this normal and could this be just by the way the baby is lying.

I'd call your doctor when you get a chance because I believe that you should report any decreased fetal movement...it is probably nothing to be worried about but I 'd let the doctor know just to be safe.

As the baby gets bigger, what doctors say to worry about is when you don't feel the baby move for an extended period of time. I'm pretty sure you'll be okay, but if it makes you feel better, go ahead and call your doctor. Hope everything's well!

Fetal movement doesn't normalize until about 27 weeks. At this point the baby is still small enough to find places to hide. When I was 20 weeks I went to the hospital because although I had been feeling strong movement since about 17 weeks it had completely stopped and I hadn't felt anything for 3 days. They found the heartbeat and then gave me an ultrasound and there was my little bean just kicking away but because of the position she was in I couldn't feel it at all.
