Patient discussion about quick

Q. If the baby movement is quick, will it be harmful …..? Hi to all here…….I am 24 and 3 week pregnant. I am so happy because pregnancy is vital in every women’s life. I am curious to know when I could feel the baby movement and how it will be. If the baby movement is quick, will it be harmful …..?

A. First, congratulations for Olivia..

You should feel your baby's first movements, called "quickening," between weeks 16 and 24 of your pregnancy. If this is your first pregnancy, you may not feel your baby move until closer to 24 weeks. By the second pregnancy, some women start to feel movements as early as 13 weeks (this varies in every pregnant moms).

So when you reach your second trimester later, you need to monitor your baby's movement sometimes (just like saloni explained to you). Feel free to consult with your OB-GYN doctor whenever you feel a problem with your pregnancy.

But I wish you all the best for your pregnancy. Good luck! Stay healthy always..

Lipsitz's cultural criticisms cut to the quick. In his discussion of the impulse to romanticize blues singers like Robert Johnson, Lipsitz reminds us that white fantasies about the wandering loner who escapes the confines of bourgeois life erases all the reasons that Johnson and many black men had to flee their homes during America's epidemic of lynchings and also obscures the collective, community roots of blues music.
