  • I had just started feeling both my kids around then. It was usually at night because its easier to feel when you are relaxed. They are typically moving all day, you just can't feel it very well because they are so little still. Don't worry it will pick up in the next month or two.

  • Not necessarily! Sometimes babies are more active when you're asleep and relaxed - my son slept all day, and only woke up when I was sitting or laying down and not "rocking him to sleep" by walking. He was like that my entire pregnancy!

    Either way though, there is no need to be worried. :)

  • Your welcome. I remember with both my boys the first couple week they started I was so excited! But It was nothing compared to six (or so) months and up! My whole belly would roll side to side, and get lopsided from the baby stretching. Its nuts! So so much fun! I promise it comes quicker than you think! It is the best thing ever! Until meeting them that is! Congrats!

  • All babies move while you are asleep, I was woken up several times by it. (in a nice way) and once I almost had a heart attack! haha funny story. My sister who had just delivered her baby, was sleeping at my house and I was about 8 months. I was prescribed medicine at the time for a really bad cough, so it would help me sleep. Anyways I was totally zonked and forgot about my sister.. Well I woke up to my baby kicking, and when I looked at my belly there was a hand on it! I started like hyperventilating.. Then my sister is like whoa whoa.. ITS ME.. the baby was kicking, I could see it so I wanted to feel! hahah I had had a dream earlier that night about someone trying to take my baby out.. Ahhh good times.. still cracks me up how freaked I was!
