  • *I* could feel my baby move during all my contractions during labor. Transitioning was the only period where I didn't feel movement, but that's probably because during transition a body goes from contractions that dilate you, to contractions that help move the baby into the birth canal lol.

  • It is normal not to feel a baby move during a labor contraction (according to What to Expect). I did not feel my son during contractions except during the time I was pushing. When he got close to crowming, I could feel him wiggling!

  • I don't know I was in too much pain to think about what I was feeling.

  • Zackary didn't move during contractions. He did like to kick right after, to show his disapproval of being squeezed in such a way.
