  • try drinking cold drinks like oj or iced cold water.. or ...

    :) iced cold coffee...

    i know caffeine is not good but only if you pound caffeine all day long. one iced coffee is fine, and trust me...that when i first felt my daughter kick was after i had a tall caramal frappucino from starbucks.

  • Oh, honey, relax! You'll be so done with those kicks by the time you give birth. My little guy was always awake at night, kicking me like crazy right when I tried to sleep.
    But if you really want to feel them, go for a walk or do something active, then sit down for a while, you'll feel the movement then.

  • mine just started kicking alot too. i love it, i never got tired of it w/ my first, sometimes you can like play little games with them they can respond to light so try shinning a flashlight on your belly,. or just poke it a lil bit, not hard. cold drinks work too. my first also liked music when there was loud music he would move alot now he always comes runnin.g if he hears any music. Have fun!
