  • Which ever side the kick, raise the opposite arm and flip over. They will stop and it will kind of shock them a second and maybe cause them to stop long enough for you to sleep. LOL

  • i'm 30 weeks pregnant with twins so I feel ya. But sadly I don't have any advice for you. In fact, just the opposit. If I don't feel them kick I freak out. lol

    As long as I know i'm not hurting them they dont bother me a bit.... un born babies usually fall asleep when you are more active because the rock motion so what you are feeling is totally normal and means your babies are doing well.

  • When I was pregnant with my twins, Towards the end of it, I could only sleep in a reclining chair, so I wasn't laying flat, this helped me breath better at night, and did cause them to move so much. I slept better there than in a bed. Good luck...

  • Good luck with that I'm due in 9 weeks with one baby, and he is really active when I lie down to. I try not to eat or drink to much sugary stuff before bed. I also try to switch my position if hes really persistent some times I'll get up then lie back down. I also talk to him and touch where I feel the movement. sometimes it helps, sometimes it doesn't.
