Quickening





Category: Obstetrics or Midwifery

This is caused by the movement of the child (foetus) in the
womb. The impact of the enlarging womb, through the child (foetal)
movements, against the abdominal wall about the sixteenth week of
pregnancy gives rise to this sensation called quickening. Some women claim
to have experienced this sensation at a much earlier date, and by some it
is not felt at all. Gas in the bowels and contraction of the muscles of
the abdomen may give a chance for mistakes. In the later months of
pregnancy, the movements sometimes become so violent as to produce
perceptible movements of the womb and the abdominal muscles, and sometimes
they are the cause of the pain.
