  • I think all my friends oviously have had calm babies.
    My last pregnancy was not this way at all so,each can be different but yet,i'm being told it's too soon even for the experienced mom to know ?

  • My first son was all over the place. People could actually feel him kicking from outside of my belly at 16 weeks. He didn't stop kicking even after he came out. My other son however, didn't move more than once or twice a day and it was usually a couple small rolls and then he would quit. Every baby is different.

  • Every baby has a different personality. Your active little one is just letting you get to know his personality. Some babies move a lot (and as kids they may be filled with this same insane energy). At 20 weeks, they have lots of room to move around, so many of them do. Some don't, but some people are much more passive than others. I wouldn't worry, he's just enjoying his space. It won't be long before the kicks get stronger, but baby gets more "stuck" in there and can't make quite the same flips he's making now. No worries. It is normal. Though you may have quite an active child on your hands in the years to come.

  • I'm 26 weeks and I have been feeling my baby since I was about 17 weeks along. The US tech said it was because of the placement of the's sitting very high and posterior, so I feel every single movement! Now, at 6 months, the kicks and movement have been starting to wake me up and keep me awake at night.
