Other than, perhaps, a whirlwind of a child on the way? This baby really MOVES...gets my entire belly jiggling in a way my girls never did (and they were pretty active, just not like this). Last night I felt the outline of an entire leg/foot...the best I ever got before was outlines of the girls feet, and that was much closer to term. (I'm 30 weeks today). I just don't even know what the heck he/she is doing in there...I mean...no resistence, nothing to push against, but WOWZA!<br><br>
DH asked last night if it meant anything that baby moved a lot. Most of me doubts it, but just thought I'd ask you wise mamas...does it say anything about the baby (any sort of medical condition, perhaps)? Or just temperment?<br><br>
Oh, and of course this has me wondering if it's a boy...but I'll just have to wait and see on that one... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

Yeah, most likely means you have a whirlwind on the way...my most active baby (much as you describe) became my most active and physically strong child (physically and emotionally!)...he also was the one that I could feel actually kicking his way out the day I birthed him. It may be that the others helped eject themselves, but with him there was NO missing it!<br><br>
Babies in utero are pretty much telling you about themselves with their movement and sleep patterns.

My baby's definitely showed their personalities in utero. My oh so active pre-born was walking never to crawl again at 8months, would scale our 4' chain link fence before his second birthday, and on his second birthday, as I was carrying things out to our van, grabbed my spare keys, started the van, put it in gear and drove it 8' before I could stop him. OY! I'm so glad he's a much calmer 7yo now. Rest assured he is a unique individual. <exhale><br><br>
Do you know your baby's position? Mom's feel all of posterior babies movements. When my babies were completely <b>anterior</b> I couldn't feel their kicks and punches... only an achy soreness if I'd been kicked a lot.<br><br>

My 1st (a girl) was like that. Kid is hyper even now at almost 3.

My DD was ALSO ridiculously active in the womb- I never did kick counts because she kicked.me.all.the.time. And needless to say, she is a whirlwind! She held her head up at 2 weeks old, rolled over at 1.5 months, crawled and sat up at 5 months, pulled up and stood unassisted at 6 months. She is now 10 months and is taking steps. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: GOOD LUCK! Lol, she is a bright, smiley, full-of-personality little angel. You will probably have your hands full.

Thanks for all the stories, ladies, and looks like we're in for some fun! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Baby's back is along my left side, head down, so I feel most kicks/movements on my right, and his/her butt/back pushing back on the left. And strangely I feel a lot of weird pressure on my right hipbone at odd times, sometimes with other movement, sometimes not, but definitely from baby somehow (it's all internal).<br><br>
DH, who originally asked the question, was jokingly overwhelmed by the responses...uh oh, just what we need, bam-bam!!

Mine is lying LOP and I feel every movement! I have the hurkey, jerky, belly flopping movements as well. I had this the first time with my son and I was hoping that this time I would get a break from the super active child that he still is. He still is a dare devil. He crawled at 5 months, walked at 8 months, etc. There was no stopping him!!! At least if I have to deal with it again in this child, I will be prepared! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

MY first in utero was very active, and strong and ROUGH.. he'd have me in tears every day because he kicked me so hard. OMG he is exactly the same, highly spirited high energy strong as a little bull nonstop, nonsleeping guy!!!<br><br>
I'm a little overdue, waiting to give birth but this 2nd baby although it moves more frequently than baby 1 did is much much more gentle. I'm hoping that it stays that way on the outside and is a more relaxed personality type, as baby 1 still takes so much out of me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

At just 25 weeks (and this has been happening for a long time now!) this baby is VERY strong and packs a punch/kick. I don't remember the others being so strong inside there, but I just may not be remembering well. Brain fog and all. lol! It does take my breath away when baby gets to going. I can only imagine how it is going to be when the room gets cramped, since it HATES to be tight already. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br><br>

I could have written your posts (I just read it to dh, and he asked if I wrote this post a while ago, and just forgot!) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br>
My DDs are also 5 and 3...and I just had a little boy!<br>
DS was soooo active in utero, and I even got weird pressure on my right hip at strange times (although mostly at night). I couldn't lay on my right side in bed b/c it was so oddly uncomfortable.<br><br>
So all I can guess is that you're having a little boy...and don't be surprised if you go to 41 weeks <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
FWIW, ds is a very strong, very sweet baby so far (he's only 11 days!)...he can hold his head very well, and rolls from back to side...

I could've written it too, I have the exact same feelings and the same thing around my hip bone.<br><br>
buttttt<br><br><br>
We're having a girl, we had a fetal echo (which is just a US targeting the baby's heart) at 22ish weeks and it was followed by regular level 2 US and both techs saw a girl.

My ds was reaaaaalll mellow, hardly ever kicked, but this little one, who's a girl, moves SO MUCH MORE! Some days it feels like she's moving all day and all night long. Dh was watching my belly move all over the place a few nights ago and was like, doesn't she need to sleep at some point??? He looked a lttle worried. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I'm only 32 wks prego, so we're like, hmmmmnn, this little gal could be quite a handful! I just love to feel her move, even if it does sort of make me catch my breath sometimes. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

My first was like that so I didn't know it wasn't "normal" so to speak.. until DD came along, then it was like "whoa, what's wrong with her" but she was fine, just quieter in-utero. This baby is more active than she was, but NOTHING like their big brother!

My ds is a very active boy...and this little one in the womb is constantly moving... I am a bit worried, but ready for the challenge...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">
