I'm getting kicked ALL day long! Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, I love it (though I do sometimes worry that I'm doing something wrong, i.e. eating something the baby doesn't like to cause all this kicking), but it's really surprising me. I NEVER felt my boys kick this frequently with my last pregnancy, and I thought twins were supposed to move *more* than singletons (or, at least, that the moms would be feeling more movement). I wonder if maybe they couldn't move as much since they were smooshed in there, and now this baby has my whole big stretched-out uterus to himself and is doing a little dance in there. These are not the subtle kicks I would expect of a 20+ week fetus either. These are "woah," make-my-tummy jump type KICKS.
Anyone else have a super kicky baby growing inside them? IS there anything I should be worried about with this? (Does it mean he's more likely to get tangled in his cord or something like that?).
