Ask a mother what it feels like when a baby inside the womb kicks her. A likely reply would be, “My baby inside is not not kicking me but just trying to make space to hug me from the inside!”

Wow, what a feeling it is! Experiencing that first kick of your baby and getting to know that you have entered into the world of motherhood, which is the best phase of the life. The excitement and the learnings in the entire nine-month journey are something that can never be expressed in words. Every small activity done by your baby inside will make you curious and concerned.

How does the baby kick? How often is the baby kicking? Or why is the baby not kicking? Every small thing ends up as a big question in a mother’s mind. And why not? After all, she deserves to know and understand every single action of her baby.

So let us give you some interesting facts about a baby’s kicks during pregnancy.

3. Increased Kicking When You Lie On The Left Side

A baby’s kicks increase when the mother is lying on her left side. It happens because the blood supply to the fetus gets boosted while lying on the left side and hence improves the baby’s movements.

6. Indication Of Poor Health

Reduced fetal activity can be a matter of huge concern. If your baby’s kicks are reduced, it indicates an insufficient supply of oxygen to the baby.

7. Decreased Kicks After 36 Weeks
