I'm on boy #2, and this one is MUCH more active than his brother was. And doesn't get hiccups. He likes to put his head on my bladder and turn it reeeeeeeeeeally slowly. I don't get leg cramps as often this time, either.
Jennifer, you just described exactly what I was going to post. All the way down to the leg cramps.
In fact, my entire pregnancy has been different this time from the get-go. I was so convinced this was a girl that I didn't even believe the u/s techs when they said boy. 3 techs later they convinced me that there's no denying it.
Butting in from July...dd1 was not so active, ds1 was SO busy (still is as he is climbing on the couch to look out the window as I type!!) and this baby (a girl) isn't nearly as active as he was.
I think that it coorelates a lot with their personalities when they are born too. Dd was SO happy and laidback. DS...that is another story!!
I had a girl last time and am having a boy this time. This boy is WAY more active than DD ever was. She was decently active, but he never stops. Also, with this pg my m/s was much worse and this pg has been so much harder than the last. I've heard boys are harder than girls, but personally I think its just that every pregnancy (as every child) is different.
duh...how obvious--why didn't I think of that? Just looking for generalizations to see whether I need to find a boy middle name! Of course its character dependent. Thanks for cluing me in. I give up. Boy/girl? Just have to wait...
My daughter was WAY more active than my son and those personalities continued into babyhood. My daughter was a highneeds sort of baby while my son was ultra-laid back (only as a baby, he is crazy now!). This baby is by far the most laid back out of the three now. I have no clue if it is a boy or a girl and I wonder if the laid back personality is going to stick during the baby days. It sure is fun finding out, isn't it?
