The baby is a wiggle monster during contractions? I thought labor was supposed to CALM them down? It is hard to deal with the contractions with her moving so much.

That's never happened to me. In fact, I barely remember mine even moving at all during the entire labor, but my labors are usually quick and very painful so I don't remember much of them anyway.

my oldest didn't move DURING contractions but he moved a LOT between them.

during contractions there was no way for him TO move.

My friend Robina's baby was an acrobat during contractions. Sounds painful!!!

Yes my wee one (4 days old) moved a ton during and in between contractions. For apparently she was trying to find a good position...at the last min (during pushing) she went sunny side up and the OB and I had to spin her back

It was a really strange sensation...not so much painful just strange...she was also really low so it felt like she was grinding her little melon against my cervix

Mine moved a lot during and between contractions. Her head wasn't well positioned and I think she was trying to get in a better position. I don't know if it helped but it sure was uncomfortable.

Mine moved a lot. DH said it looked like he was swimming down. For me it didn't really make the ctx more painful.
