If you have not been able to appreciate fetal movements even in 21st week of your pregnancy and this being your second pregnancy , it is suggested that you may get the level 2 ANOMALY SCAN done as soon as possible and to look for viability and heart beat of the fetus and growth parameters and any congenital anomalies.
No movements at 21 weeks is not a good sign . Please visit your physician or ER as soon as possible for an ultrasound examination.
wishing you safe pregnancy,
