Hello Yolanda, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Fetal movement is a sign that the fetus in your womb is in good and healthy condition. Active fetal movement is a good indicator of fetal development. The greater the gestational age, fetal movements will be more active as well, the movement can reach 30 times in 1 hour. The perceived movement is not felt at all times but depends on the fetal sleep cycle.
Fetal movements can be active in various parts of the abdomen, depending on the position of the baby. Sometimes the movement is only felt on one side, it is not a dangerous thing, because the position of the fetus can change. As you feel, a more active fetal movement is on the right. To keep your pregnancy healthy, consume 4 healthy 5 perfect foods. In addition, many foods that contain iron and folic acid such as spinach, beets, chicken liver, fish, avocados, adequate rest, avoid working to the point of being too tired, avoid cigarettes and alcohol during your pregnancy. Take control according to the schedule recommended by the doctor.
You should also regularly observe fetal movements in the womb to detect the possibility of fetal distress in your fetus. If you have been active before but then the movements are less active, and even do not move again for some time, then you must be vigilant and immediately consult your obstetrician for an ultrasound examination.
I hope this helps
