Anyone else have a mellow baby in utero?

Thinking back on my first pregnancy my son was pretty mellow- didnt really kick a ton, or very hard... more pushes than anything. Just wondering if anyone else experienced a child like this and were your subsequent pregnancies different? I am thinking about this now because I am expecting my second and hopinh to feel more this time around.

BTW my first was a healthy full term baby too.

  • My older tow kids were movers in the womb and out. The third baby was so mellow and still is at age 3.

  • yeah thats the funny thing.... my first is NOT mellow outside the womb and is a mover and shaker- always into something and he's almost 3

  • I had dd two years ago. She was so mellow when I was pregnant with her. Most of the time if I wanted to know if she was still alive I had to drink caffeine just so she'd kick and even then it wasn't that much.

  • DD was a mellow fetus and a mellow baby. Right now she's about to turn 18 months and is running everywhere but she's overall a happy and agreeable child.
