Question: How often should a 20 week fetus move?

Is it normal to not feel baby move some days at 20 weeks?

A: This is very normal. Feeling a baby move typically doesnt happen until 18 to 22 weeks for first-time moms. For women who have been pregnant at least once before, fetal movement can be felt as early as 14 to 15 weeks.

Is it normal for a fetus to not move for a day?

It is sporadic in early pregnancy, and women report feeling movement one day but not the next. After 26 weeks, however, fetal movement should be felt on a daily basis. Most practitioners will counsel their patients to do daily fetal kick counts.

Can you hear the placenta with no heartbeat?

If you only hear the placental sound with the mothers rate it does not tell you that the fetus is still alive. If you hear the placental sounds at the fetal rate (differentiated by checking the mothers pulse at the same time as listening) you can assume that the fetus is alive.
