  • I would wrap my arms around my belly and hug, or rock it, and sing gently to it as if it were already out and needed my attention. Id also rub on my belly where I though its back was at or feet. I loved every minute.

  • Well he kicks me everytime. I can't play music and put my head set on my tummy like my mom did because he gets really mad. But thank you I think I'll try that.

  • The movement as long as it is not irratic is a sign of fetal well being. Enjoy these moments. You can read, sing, talk wha whatever you like.I made the costly mistake of wishing my lil girl would. stop moving so much so I could sleep and not because of me but an error made by the doctor that was the last time I felt her move. Enjoy your lil one, I wish you all the best.

  • weird question....why do you want them to calm down...enjoy being able to feel them move inside while you still can...its a miracle!

  • Well Zander is EXACTLY like his father and does nothing but move and keep me up. I love the fact that hes moving its just everything else. The constant staying awake and not getting comfy. Im so not used to it.

  • Stay away from sugar drinks, fruit juices, caffeine & any food that may set him off or just enjoy the movement.
