That's very normal, all baby's are different...my first did alot of flips and not as much kicking, my second was more quiet and did alot of rolling and poking gently...my third was my most active and kicked a whole lot as well as rolled and flipped, and I found that they each did what resembled their personalities....my daughter ended up being full of personality, but at the same time can be a bit reserved at times too...my son ended up being very quiet and shy, and my other son is mr. outgoing and wants all eyes on him...now I am pregnant with baby number 4 and she kicks quite alot but shes not like any of my others, I ccan't wait to see what her personality is going to be like :)
I felt that way around 30 weeks and for the rest of the 9.5 weeks of my pregnancy with my first and only so far. She seemed to never stop moving until the last couple of days and I knew it was just about time at that point because of it.
this baby is very active too..i thought my 1st was but compared to this 1..no way...i think shes gunna keep us on our toes!
same with mine, i still have 4 weeks left till shes here, but shes a monster!!! when she was still able to actually kick she would leave visible bruises on my tummy, and now that shes head down and dropping everytime she moves im half expecting a little hand to pop out and wave hi, lol she refuses to let the doctor listen to her heart either, everytime he puts the doppler on her she kicks it constantly, and it takes him at least 10 mins to hear enough to determine her heartrate is good lol, shes stubborn as hell too, gonna b just like her daddy... i swear she plants both fet on my ribs and just kicks and pushes, sometimes so hard that i drop to my knees in pain and cant move till she does... and forget sleeping at night, thats when she kicks and flops the most to the point where i spend most of my night sitting up waiting for her to stop or walking around with my fingers crossed that the movement will put her to sleep even just long enough for me to sleep. but at least with her being so active i havent really had to worry about doing kick counts, she gets in 10 kicks in less than 10 mins at any given time, so i would notice right away if she wasnt moving as good
Quoting RhondaVeggie:Mine was a ninja baby inside and she's only four days old but so far she's still a ninja who can already roll over and she grabs my boobs to position them for feeding; no mean feat considering I'm a DD.
When I was 24 weeks I told my midwife she was a little ninja and she just laughed at me until she put the Doppler on my belly and ninja baby kicked it. Total strangers were staring at my belly for weeks because it was constantly lurching from one side to the other. NSTs were a bundle of laughs, regularly took over an hour to cobble together enough strip for a twenty minute read and the nurse had to sit there the whole time chasing her with the heart monitor.
