Wʜʏ Yᴏᴜʀ Bᴀʙʏ Mᴏᴠᴇꜱ Aᴛ Nɪɢʜᴛ Iɴ Tʜᴇ Wᴏᴍʙ

Pregnancy is full of curiosities and knowing your baby’s movements in the Wᴏᴍʙ is even more exciting. As an expectant mother enters her seventh or eighth month, she begins to observe a certain pattern in her baby’s behavior and movements.

Small kicks, twists, and wiggles amuse moms, and these movements are also a sign of your baby’s health and well-being.

As babies grow, they stretch and become flexible. This is when they start punching, rolling and kicking. Gradually, your baby’s movements become more responsive to noises, uncomfortable positions, sleeping and sitting patterns.

Pʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴛ women often observe more movement at night. One of the common reasons that can explain this pattern is that the baby becomes more alert when not feeling any activity. While moms-to-be are often more active during the day, babies go into sleep mode. And when there’s no movement, it can sʜᴏᴄᴋ them, resulting in intense movement.

But again, this can vary from child to child. The baby may also be more active during the day. And mothers, active during the day, may not feel their baby’s movements as much as they do at night.

Small movements made during the day can go unnoticed as you are mostly busy during the day. But all those powerful movements, like strong kicks can be felt at any time of the day. If you feel your baby move a lot at night, try to observe movements during the day. Watch for signs your baby is responding. In case you do not observe movement, do not panic immediately. Maybe the child has developed a sleeping habit.

It is likely that you experience reduced movement during the day as well as at night. While that doesn’t always mean soᴍᴇᴛʜing is wrong, you shouldn’t ignore it either. Keep watching for movements and if you feel them getting weird, it could be a sign of hypoxia and fetal distress. The doctor may conduct an exam that includes an ultrasound to check the placenta’s ʙʟᴏᴏᴅ flow and the baby’s health.

Remember, if you notice anything alarming, see your doctor immediately.
