FAQs to Gynecologist

I am 16 weeks pregnant and I can’t feel the baby moving.

It is too early to feel the baby moving at 16 weeks. The first time mothers start feeling the baby’s movement is 22 weeks, in some cases 24 weeks. Women who have had babies before may feel the baby’s movement by 18 weeks. If you had a normal first trimester scan (between 10- 14 weeks), it could be reassuring.

It is appropriate for you and any patient who is concerned about their baby before 16 weeks or after 16 weeks to consult gynaecologist for scan and Doppler to assess the viability of the baby.

I’m 32 weeks pregnant and I have not felt the baby moving for the past 3 days.

The baby’s movements indicate the wellbeing of your baby. If you have not felt your baby moving in the last three days, you need to see your Obstetrician urgently. Your Obstetrician will check your baby’s heart beat and may need further tests like CTG (fetal heart monitoring test) and or an ultrasound scan depending on the situation.
