  • inutero babies don't get "hungry" they don't eat. they get a constant supply of nutrients from your blood via the umbilical cord.

  • I had no idea why my babies moved when they did. I always assumed they were just stretching.

  • If your ever concerned about lack of movement have a sugary drink like juice or soda and put your feet up and relax he'll be jumpin in no time.

  • Babies don't get hungry because they get "fed" constantly by the placenta through the umbilical cord. They just move at random moments in response to the things happening outside, just to explore their world in the uterus, or according to their sleep/awake cycles.

  • your baby wont get hungry. They are fed by the placenta, it makes sure they get all the nutrients they need, oxygen and such.. If the baby's moving chances are its' just trying out its legs and arms. They move sometimes when they are uncomfortable and it may take a while for them to find a comfy spot to rest, they are pretty cramped in there. They also move when they're awake, I used to say that my daughter was playing with me when she would move. I remember being very happy every day that my baby would move, and pushing on my belly to get her to move when I thought she had been sleeping too long. It's ok to be paranoid about those things, I lost 2 babies so I understand the feeling.
