Anyone else have this?

I'm 21 weeks and for the past week this kid is nearly *always* moving. This might sound dumb to some people...but is this OK? Should I be worried?

I'm 23 weeks and my baby has been moving pretty frequently for the past few weeks now (except this past weekend I didn't feel movement much for a couple days, but now it's back and strong as ever); I mean I wouldn't say "constantly" but I've heard they move more when you're still (or you notice it more) than when you're moving (it rocks them to sleep) and since I am still, reading and studying most of the day, it's no surprise that the baby is awake and kicking.

I can't say for sure whether it's "normal" or not b/c this is my first, too but I am pretty sure it is.

I heard this too, but mine is on the go even when I am! I take long walks with my doggie every day and I feel like I'm being prodded along by the thing in my belly!

because they still have lots of room to move. In another month or two it starts getting crowded and then you tend to get more squirms and pushes etc., but right now he/she is probably able to still do flips in there.

mine moves all the time since about then (36 weeks now)

my first was NOTHING like this. Glad the active one was second, otherwise I'd be panicking over the one that wasnt moving much

Mine did that too. He didn't stop when he was born, either. He was 8 months old the first time he was willing to lie still and cuddle while he was awake. Even as a newborn he was lifting his head off my shoulder and trying to look around. He's exhausting, but lots of fun when I have the energy to deal with him.

Thanks guys--I feel better now. I was just reading so much about how some folks were only feeling thier babies sometimes during the day and it started making me think that maybe it's not normal, or ok that I feel this one as much as I do. That might sound silly, but I've gotten a lot of wierd responses from family members who think it's all in my head . It's nice to know that they're just jerks lol.

Normal for me and I loved loved loved it!
Even now in my 8th month baby will still be really active, but only during specific times, not 24/7 like before.
