Pregnant women feel movements from about the fifth month of pregnancy. In cases of high-risk pregnancy daily recording of fetal movements is useful in monitoring fetal well-being. Complete cessation of fetal movements points to a severely distressed fetus and impending death. We report here five women in whom failure to experience fetal movements was present from the beginning of pregnancy, or occurred after fetal movements had been felt for several weeks during the pregnancy. All the women delivered normal infants with high Apgar score.
