post #81 of 119

Is it normal for the baby to be really active some days?  I felt a lot more movements today than usual.  He kicked almost nonstop for about two hours tonight with only brief pauses.  He's calmed down now but I was surprised at how active he was and it got me wondering if it could mean he is in distress or something.  He's been pretty active for a few weeks now (probably since about week 22 he started kicking a few times every day) but I think he must have just gone through another growth spurt or something because he's kicking much stronger and more frequent the past few days.  My husband has been able to feel him much earlier than we expected with my placenta where it is.  I'll be 26 weeks along in a couple days.

 

I have a small cup of coffee most days.  Not every day but most days.  Or a cup of tea.  But I was told that was okay.  I try not to have too much sugar but we did get a chocolate cake for my birthday a few days ago and I've been having a piece every night since then but haven't had one yet tonight so that's not it.  I guess he just has a lot of energy today right?

My baby's been going haywire... like I can barely go ten minutes without being beaten and kicked inside.  But, the past few weeks I've had a sinus infection, so I'm doing a ton of coughing and nose-blowing,  which makes my belly squeeze and shake, so I bet it stresses her out.  

I guess I've always assumed that movement= good; I never thought of it meaning baby's in distress. I sure hope not.

Mine has been moving all the time lately, too.  And getting into weird positions a lot where I have to shove parts "back inside." LOL  All of my kids have moved a ton in utero though, no quiet babies here, so it hasn't really struck me as out of the ordinary.

Same.  1babysmom, sometimes I feel like we are pregnancy twins...we seem to share a lot of opinions/experiences.

Haha!  I've noticed the very same thing!

Mine is moving so much now! Her favorite time to dance seems to be at bedtime. I can see my stomach move now. I'm 24 weeks.

Baby moves quite a bit when I'm sitting. And I feel like my uterus is very wide even for 25 weeks, because I can feel jabs way by my hip bone and up near my ribs.

Is it possible at this age for them to interact with us? Before I went to bed last night, I had my usual cup of hot tea, and I rested it on my belly. Sure enough, Baby repeatedly kicked right where the warm mug was resting!  And then from about 1 am to 2:30 am, I was laying awake getting kicked, and we kind of had a little game going. At first he/she was kicking me wherever I placed the stethoscope. Then I started pushing where I thought his feet were, and if I pushed once, he kicked back once. If I pushed twice, I was rewarded with TWO little kicks! Listen to me- I'm going to be one of those mothers that is like "Counting? Oh yeah, my kid has been able to do that since before he was BORN!" LOL.

I totally think they can and do interact with us... Whenever my DH wants to feel the baby, I can just lie down and talk to her and she'll start moving smile.gif it's pretty sweet... We call her by name a lot hoping she might recognize it sooner smile.gif i sing to her a lot to, hoping maybe those same songs will soothe her after birth smile.gif

Absolutely.

Lately, from time to time, I've been feeling my boy kick in my butt! Anyone else have this experience?

LOL...I had this happen to me the other night. It's definitely startling!!

Sheesh...I can't be the only one who's already feeling like baby is already going to burst through my belly button!  This is something I LOOOOOOOOVE about late pregnancy yet it can be SO uncomfortable- almost painful- later on too.  Today this little one has been moving constantly, trying to interact with the kiddos during breakfast ;) and flipping around and kicking out my belly button and then flipping back around and sticking it's little but out and so on and so on....

This little one pushes so hard sometimes I just feel like pushing her right back down. It's still comforting at this point but give me a month and I'll probably be annoyed by it. ;P Also the kicks to the bladder and cervix area are no fun. 

post #97 of 119

Haha yes, I push a butt and limbs "back in" all the time!  

 

I have a strange fascination with those bladder and cervix kicks.  They're not comfortable or anything, but they feel so weird, and are so exclusive to pregnancy, that I think they're just sort of cool. LOL   I don't get them very often though because I've always had babies who tend to remain head down almost all the time (though I do feel "punches" and wiggles down there a lot!!) so I can imagine if it were the other way around I would feel differently!

post #98 of 119
I have a pretty long torso so even at 29wks3days I have yet to have to "push anything back" lol but.... HOLY MOSES! The bladder and even more the cervix abuse is killer!!! She little acrobats is head down AND kicking my cervix. YES, I said KICKING! At my US last week she was head down and had her feet on her forehead! We were all laughing it was pretty funny. But yeah I have about 4 hrs every evening wear she uses my bladder and cervix as her personal punching bag... Thank goodness I've got the stitch in there, cuz otherwise she would be kicking her was right on out! Lol

I have a pretty long torso as well and I'm grateful for that. And I'm not sure how this baby is sitting currently so I don't know if it's kicks or punches but they are certainly attention grabbers! Occasionally she will hit what I can only assume is near my spine because I will get what feels like an electric volt all the way up it. Very quick but it makes me sit up straight immediately. 

 

I was actually watching my belly bounce around the other night. That is always fun to do. I can't wait until my DD can see those movements. She has been able to feel her kick but hasn't seen the movement yet.

My little one is in love with my right side rib cage! She's still head down (hiccups down in my underwear line is pretty weird), but that bum and those feet like to push as hard as she can on the inside of my rib cage. And I push back! She also makes it a point to push against the seatbelt when I'm in the car.
