The period of gestation when the motion of the foetus first becomes perceptible. This usually occurs about the eighteenth week, and was at one time erroneously believed to mark the time at which the foetus becomes alive- Animatio foetus. It need scarcely be said, that it possesses the principle of life from the moment of the union of the materials furnished by the sexes as a fecundating copulation. When the motion is felt, the female is said to be 'quick with child.'
