Does anyone else have an extremely active baby after you eat a meal?

  • Yup! That's how it is supposed to be. If you are ever worried that you haven't felt fetal movement in a while and you want to get him/her going your are supposed to eat a little something (preferably with glucose) and lay still for about 20 minutes. That's how long it takes to process and give him/her that little boost. There are also recent studies that are saying that that is how long it takes to "flavor" the amniotic fluid and that may be what your baby is reacting to- the difference in taste.
