Can you guess what a baby's personality will be like based on how they act in the womb?

for example, if your baby is very active in the womb will they be very active after they are born?

  • My oldest and middle children were very active in the womb, and are very active now. The youngest was totally mellow in the womb and still is.

  • Yeah. .. my girl is really laid back, she was like that in the womb. My boy (who I am STILL pregnant with) is very jumpy, he startles easily. I bet he's not going to be as laid back!

  • I can only go by my son, he was a fireball when I carried him! Constantly kicking, rolling, punching, I swear sometimes you could see his little feet he would push on my stomach so hard!
    And he is 10 now, and still a fireball!

  • My played opposites. My son was pretty quiet in the womb. You cannot stop the child for more than 5 seconds now. Five seconds is a good day, lol. My daughter was an active little thing in the womb. Though she's not as high energy as her brother, she's MUCH more active than I expected.

  • I'm not sure how much of it actually has to do with the child's personality, and how much gets influenced by your parenting response. My DD was pretty mellow in the womb, and she's still mellow. But how much of her mellow behavior now has to do with me treating her like a mellow kid?
