  • Yes it's normal for them to move around. Those dang contractions are pushing on the baby, so why wouldn't the baby push back? ;) Some baby's like to sit back and chill too, so don't get too worried if your baby quits moving for a little while.

    Good luck!

  • Yes Its Normal. To Get Your Contractions To Be More Regular Walk, Have Sex, And Nipple Stimulation. Supposedly Castor Oil Works Too But IT Is WAY Nasty, My Sister Swears It Worked For Her, Didn't Work For Me.

  • My baby gets mad after a contraction. Poor kid too since I've been contracting irregularly for several weeks now :(
