Is it normal to feel fetal movement only in the lower abdomen?
Q: I would like to know if it’s normal to feel my baby’s movements only in the lower part of my abdomen?
Craig L. Bissinger, M.D.
A: The location of the movements is irrelevant. Perhaps your baby is lying low in the abdomen early in the pregnancy and kicking in one specific area. Or the placenta is located on the front of the uterus, making it harder to feel kicks under this spot. I’d enjoy the baby moving and not worry about where the movements are coming from.
