I've been MIA lately cause I've been taking care of my mom who just got out of surgery. But I've been trying to catch a thread or two....<br><br>
So, I'm starting to think I have the most quiet baby in the world! I'm almost 27 weeks, and my little girl moves but not as much as other babies from what I can gather. I absolutely treasure her movements!! They usually happen when I first wake up or when I eat and then lay down. But, I have friends that tell me their babies were keeping them up at night by this time in their pregnancies. Other ladies tell me that their little ones were kicking their husbands and anything else that they put on their bellies. My husband has felt her only once, and she really just doesn't move or kick all that much. Sometimes I worry that I am not feeling her more. Could it be that I am just an unexperienced first time mom that is not used to the kicks? Or could it be that my baby is just quiet and sleeping a lot? Maybe I've been too preocuppied lately to just sit and notice her moving. I dunno. Anybody else's baby just like to hang out down there?

I know how you feel. I am also a first time mommy and get a little paranoid about my baby not being as active. I feel him everyday but his movements are not as strong as they used to be. I think that it's because he is getting cramped up in there and he doesnt have much range for his movements. I think that as long as you feel movement then its fine your baby is probably just mellow, hopefully she'll stay that way after birth too and take it easy on you. Good luck and try not to worry.<br><br>
Peace.<br><br>

This is my 2nd and I feel it way more, I am alot bigger than I was with DD and I think that she just has more room to move around. The only time I was kept awake by DD was at the very end when she would flip from one side to the other, that is a crazy feeling!

All of mine have been very different and I think it is linked to personality. Ds1 was very active to the point he would make me feel sick, he would move so much. Ds2 was very relaxed and dd1 was kinda in the middle. All match the type of personality they have now. This one is a "gentle" one too. I am hoping s/he will be as easy to please as ds2 was!

Hi<br>
i am experiencing little movement as well. In the U/S the baby was movin all over the place. My m/w said my placenta was in front and so the kicks are not as easy to feel. I too cherish all of those little movements!!! Good Luck!

I was just about to post what Tintal wrote. The placenta could really be buffering a lot of the movement. But we'll take laid-back babies any day too!

When I had my sono done on Monday, the tech stated I had a skinny placenta. I feel everything very clearly, but only during certain times of the day/night.

Just wanted to say thanks for all your great messages. I'm back at home now and can MDC all I want. YEAH!!<br>
My gentle girl continues to move everyday and I love her so much. I think you guys are on to something with the placenta buffering topic. And now that you mention it, at an 8 week ultrasound, my midwife did tell me that my placenta was in the front and that it may buffer the baby's movements! I just totally forgot about that, and I also figured that my placenta would move up naturally. But maybe that's me imagining things that I think I've read. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br>
I do prefer the calm baby theory too! She seems serene.
