  • LOL yeah, my son moves like that pretty much all day long. My doc always has a hard time listening to his heartbeat and getting a good shot of him on the ultrasound because as soon as he's targeted, he moves!!!! My doc spent about an hour trying to take the stress test thing today. LOL

  • Im 31 weeks along and my daughter does the exact same thing, my doctor said it was fine and a good sign that she is healthy. He also told me that 7out of 8 time when they are quick and in the same spot they are just hiccups. Its when they stop being so active when you need to worry.

  • LOL I just had my 3 daughter this past April (I know right 3 girls how lucky for me). Any ways she would never EVER stop moving in me sometimes it felt like she was in a damn marathon lol. What made matters worse was when her dad and I would stretch out on the bed to watch TV that is when she decided to take off. She loved her daddy around lol. My second daughter was just as bad. I used to manage a pizza shop and she made it next to impossible to work there were times when I would LMAO because you could see threw my apron what ever she was doing it was crazy and w/out a shirt on my stomach looked hilarious when she moved. My first was more calm only moved when daddy or my best guy friend would talk to her. To this day she is still like that very quite. The last two though boy they are wound up especially the middle never stays still for more than a few min. But we love it.

  • yes i most certainly have,its nothing to be concerned about,he is an active baby and thats a good sign,my son is noe this now 23 months and has no affect on him,this is normal and great for a baby to be active.i wrote down the times of when it was happening,what i was doing and now have applied to the times now and youll be amazed on how you can solve alot of tantrums from this,its worked for me.hope this eases your mind

  • Oh holy crap, my daughter moves around crazily. Sometimes it's painful because she does so many kicks and flips at once. I don't see it as a bad thing,'s really nice and comforting to know that she's doing just fine in there.

    Here's a link to my youtube video of her kicking: (It's short, you don't have to look at it...but it's kinda cool to see, and you'll understand what I mean about "moving around crazily" :P)

  • My baby does that a lot lol they are just having a fun time I think... if anything was wrong the ob would have said something.
