  • I am 31 wks today...and my baby has moved like a rock star all week...never really hurt but sometimes was a bit annoying - even though I LOVE feeling him/her move! We have not moved much today...but maybe we are worn out. I would think it is pretty normal...but this is my first pg and so far we are not very consistent on our movements. If you are really concerned and it causes you a lot of discomfort and pain - I would definitely call the dr. Best wishes!!

  • Your medication could have been giving her a charge, absolutely. They also tend to move around more when you're holding still, so you've probably just been able to feel her more since you'd been stationary. There isn't really anything you can do, other than to maybe soothe her verbally and by massaging your belly.
