  • Every baby is different. But during labor baby is likely to move a little less.

  • Mine he was busy until the afternoon my contractions started. Then he slowed down a bit. But I remember being in labor and he kicked with almost every contraction, which was killer since I was trying to focus so hard!

  • My daughter kicked before I started LABOR.. and during it as well I suppose.. but I don't rem much the birthing process was pretty quick with God's grace.. But I do rem. When the contractions take place.. my stomach would tighten up alot and then I'd feel her move.. so it was her way of saying "there is no room in here.. get me out".. hehehe.

  • I didn't really feel them, and then once I had the epidural I couldn't feel them at all. It was terrible, it broke my heart that the feeling was suddenly gone. :( Enjoy every little flutter while you still can!
