  • lol no worries my daughter was like that too when she was in my tummy but then when i had her all she did was sleep lol. she musta used up all her energy in my belly. i mean she did wake up every 2 hrs but most new borns do but after that phase she would sleep ALL night. but all babies are different!

  • My son was crazy too! He was all over the place, sometimes my belly would look lop-sided cause he's be over on one side, lol. But after he was born, he slept all the time. He was still pretty active, but not as much as I thought he'd be, lol. As for sleep, just try sleeping during the times he's not so active. GL, and congrats on your first!

  • Babies do that. When you are active and walking around or just being awake with a faster heart beat, it lulls your baby to sleep but when you stop and are still (aka) the baby wakes up and wants to play. It will take a little bit after they are born (sometimes a few weeks) for them to get on a sleep at night and awake during the day.

  • My baby did that too. And as the PP said she's being lulled to sleep when you're active. It takes some getting used to. But when he's born he'll sleep all the time at first so no worries. Congrats on your 1st!!
