Hello, thank you for asking the HealthReplies.com Team.
Fetal movement is one indicator that indicates the fetus is still healthy in the womb. 29-32 weeks gestation is a phase where usually the fetus is very active in moving. In this phase the head and buttocks are still able to move, but when entering the gestational age above 32 weeks, the fetus is usually in a fixed position and is in a position ready for birth, where the head is located below and feet on the top of the mother's abdomen. This is usually characterized by movements that are felt in the upper abdomen. To ensure the position of the baby in the womb, it is necessary to do a direct examination by a midwife or general practitioner or a gynecologist. The doctor may also conduct additional examinations such as ultrasound to see the condition of the fetus, gestational age, estimated weight and delivery, and see the overall health condition of the fetus. At the age of the third trimester of pregnancy, the nutritional needs of mothers and babies increase, so it is recommended that mothers consume healthy and nutritious foods, which contain protein, fat, enough carbohydrates, and vitamins and minerals, such as folic acid, iron, calcium, etc. so.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
