Most women feel baby's first movement between 14 and 22 weeks, but it will be faint at first. If you haven't felt your baby kick by 24 weeks, tell your midwife or doctor.
Your baby now reacts to touch, and his heart rate increases whenever he hears a noise.
You'll start to see his limbs from the outside – perhaps a heel or foot pushing up on your belly. This helps you and your partner bond with him.
His movements will have been increasing up until this stage, but from now they'll stay at the same level. Contrary to what you may have heard they won't reduce from now on.
Space is getting limited but you'll feel just as many kicks. "If he's breech with his bottom in your pelvis, you might feel sharp head butts rather than kicks," says Anna.
Your baby will continue to move and kick while you are in labour.
