Fetal Movements At 8 Weeks’ Gestation.?
Doc … my wife is 2 months pregnant … her uterus is moving down and up to the center … sometimes she turns from left to right … please explain doc ..
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
First of all, we need to ask a few questions regarding your complaint. Has your wife's pregnancy been checked by a specialist obstetric and gynecologist? Has an ultrasound done? Is the calculation of the age of 2 months used is based on the count of late menstruation or the results of the examination by a doctor?
In general, fetal movements can be felt starting at 15 weeks' gestation or more. Initially the movements that were felt were in the form of soft movements which over time will get stronger, including also movements to the left or right. Starting at 28 weeks of gestation and above, pregnancy enters the last trimester and the fetus moves more actively and can spin in the womb because it is supported by a lot of amniotic fluid.
If the complaint is disturbing, you are advised to consult with a specialist obstetric and gynecologist. The consultation is also useful to confirm the gestational age and check the health condition of the mother and the prospective baby.
Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
