Q: Sometimes I feel the baby flutter and sometimes I don't.  Is this normal?

A: Fetal movements that feel like flutters or tremors are completely normal and do not mean there is anything wrong with the baby, such as seizures. The flutters and tremors that many pregnant women feel are most often associated with the developing nervous system of the baby, and they are usually experienced during the first half of a pregnancy before the baby is big enough to produce a real kick.
