  • Id just call the doctor on call. Sounds like just a very active baby. Did you eat or drink anything alot of caffiene or sugar? I know my son was very active in my belly literally all the time. Sometimes you could see him kick becaus ehe kicked THAT hard. Id call your dr to give you piece of mind and see what they think but I wouldnt see the need in rushing to the ER.

  • i think you're probably just feeling uncomfortable bc he is moving so much. the last time you went to the dr. did they say he was head down, etc. he might be turning over and getting into the right position while he still has room.

  • I agree with the PP he's probably just switching position, and lots of movement is movement is when you should be concerned. I've never heard of a baby moving a lot and it being an issue.
