My baby has times when she moves everything she can with as much force as she can for as long as she can. It is like she's doing jumping jacks in my uterus. It can sometimes be painful. Everytime it is jarring to me.
I spent my whole day with DH's grandmother at the hospital, as she was released, and then when she was at home until some other relatives could be with her. As soon as I got in my car to go home, my baby started doing her spastic dances where she kept punching my bladder (causing me to shriek a few times), jabbing me, thrusting her knees up and down, and kicking me. These were not love taps. These were more like "I hate it in here. Let me out" movements. The whole episode lasted probably an hour and a half tonight. I tried gentle movements, talking to her, but eventually I had to lie down on my side and just let her wear herself out. This seems to happen 1-2 times per week where she has a marathon in there and no part of me is safe from her wild movemens.
She moves her body a lot anyway, but I can't find much information on babies moving like she moves. The space is supposed to be tight in there and she isn't supposed to have the room to move. But my goodness, the amount of movement and the power or her movement is shocking to me. A friend of mine who just had a baby couldn't relate to this because although her boy kicked a bit, it was nothing like my baby's dances.
I just wonder if my little baby is uncomfortable, if she has nervous energy, if she is having tantrums, or what causes her to get into these wild and crazy fits.
