    Is it safe to go to the cinema when pregnant. I’m 31 weeks and was there last night. My baby kicked lots during the film and I’m now very worried it has hurt her ears.

    Yes it is quite safe to go to the cinema when pregnant. The baby is in a fluid filled sac and will experience very muffled sounds. Try lying in the bath with your ears under the water and you will experience that sounds are much quieter and less clear.

    Hi, Thank you for your comment.

    Women in their second pregnancy may feel their babies move a lot sooner then in their first pregnancy. Movements can be felt from between 16-25 weeks but this can be sooner in a second pregnancy. Baby may not be doing big kicks at this stage but it sounds like you are still feeling your baby move. With all concerns with movements we do encourage women to see their midwife who can listen in to check baby's heartbeat and wellbeing. You don't say how may weeks you are but if you are concerned about the movements then please get checked over then you will feel reassured. Hope this helps, Take Care, Tommy's Midwives x
