The first 'kicks' of the baby in the mother's womb, sometime between weeks 16 and 22 of pregnancy, will allow parents to imagine what is happening inside the belly. It is evidence that your child is alive and that all is well. But how do these movements feel? What will the mother perceive?

A mother who has had previous pregnancies will perceive the movements of the baby better than new mothers, because she will be better able to differentiate whether the movements of her tummy are due to subtle baby kicks or if it's your bowel movements. Thinner women will also be able to differentiate better between a nudge from their baby and the noises of their stomach, than more chubby women.

A mother will be able to feel movements in the tummy when the baby hiccups, when a loud and unexpected noise is heard, when the baby looks for a finger to suck on, when touches her face, does cartwheels, moves or stretches her little legs, or when someone talks to him from outside.

The movements are felt in different ways by mothers. Some have the feeling that they are popping popcorn; others have the impression that they have a fish or a butterfly flapping on their belly.

At first, they won't identify the baby's movements, but as the movements become more frequent, they will begin to notice that they are your baby's. And even if the baby moves and kicks regularly, the mother will only be able to feel these movements in a few moments. At this stage it is very important to know that each baby is unique in the way they move. Comparisons should be avoided.

- It is easier to notice the baby's movements when the mother is calm, sitting or lying down.

- Choose a time of day when you know your baby will be most active.

- Observe the time it takes to feel the baby's movements

- Write down what type of movements the baby makes: if it kicks, elbows, turns, shakes or others.

- Stimulate the baby's movements, talking to him, putting on some music, or caressing the belly.

- In case you do not feel any movement for 24 hours in a row, it is convenient that you discuss it with your doctor.
