fetal movement...

i am 19 weeks tomorrow and feel the most movement when i am hungry... i havent ate too much today and i am at school...what do you guys think of that. Why do they move more now when i am hungry and sitting up instead of well fed and laying down?

  • my son does this too. He feeds off of me so when I am hungry he is not happy, i figure it is the low blood sugar levels or something. He is feeding off of what I eat so it makes sense and it amazing how much this baby relies on me.

  • Babies get constant nutrition when inside you. They dont actually"eat" when you do. But they do respond to signals in your body so if you're hungry the baby will hear you stomach making sounds.
