I'm just shy of 23 weeks...

But, my baby seems to kick very hard. Enough to wake me from a dead sleep. He also follows your hand or moves away from it, some times even kicks it when you push lightly. It this normal for being so early. I have 3 older children and dont remember going through this so early.

  • Yep, it's normal. I'm pretty sure it's a good sign. Sounds to me like he's nice and strong. :)

  • I have had STRONG kickers and also one that was SO still in the womb! Enjoy it and hopefully it won't keep you awake for long. :-)
