How active is baby during true contractions?

I think I'm having contractions. Right now I'm just lying down and seeing if they'll lighten up (what my doctor told me to do). My baby is very active right now. More so than she has been within the past week or so. I was just wondering, if these are true contractions, would she be moving this much? Thanks.

  • I wasn't paying attention to how much they were moving during true contractions ;)

  • I had a boy and he was not moving very much that I can remember. All pregnancies and labors are different though.

    Good luck and congratulations!

  • I agree all labors are different but all my kids would give me warning kicks before I had each contraction. Between them they were pretty inactive though.

  • With all three of my little ones when I was in actual labor and have contractions they did not move at all.
