26 Weeks Pregnant Fetal Movement In The Lower Abdomen?
good afternoon doctor,
At 26 weeks of gestation, the fetus weighs about 760 grams with a length of about 36 cm. The size of the uterus / height of the top of the uterus at 24-28 weeks ranges from 24-25 cm above the symphysis or about 2-3 fingers above the center.
One indicator of fetal well-being that can be felt by the mother is fetal movement. The fetus can move in the womb. If fetal movement is felt below the navel, this could be normal because the position of the hands and feet of the fetus is below so that movement is felt below. You don't need to worry because the fetus will continue to move and change positions until it approaches delivery later.
However, to ensure the well-being of the fetus, I suggest that you have regular pregnancy check-ups at least once a month with a gynecologist. Immediately consult a doctor if you feel the movement of the fetus is reduced or the fetus is not moving.
