Wiggly babies

So do you think that girls wiggle around more than boys in the womb?

My mom said in her opinion girls do move more than boys. I know my son didn't wiggle nearly as much as this little girl does.

Oh I guess u can't set up polls if you are mobile. Or I over looked it.

I've had two girls, so I don't really have a comparison. My mom has had 2 of each and always talks about how active we all were in the womb.

It's an old wives' tale that can be told either way.  There isn't any science to support it, just a relatively small sample size of women who will say one way or the other.  It's fun though, especially considering it originated during a time when there was no way to tell the sex, accept to look for "signs" and make guesses.

...Sorry for being such a debbie downer about it!

You are not. I was wondering if anyone had this. Plus I'm bored because I'm sitting in l&d due to passing out because of low blood sugar. I'm type 1. We thought I was starting insulin resistance but then this happens. I had it happen in my first tri too twice actually. I'm 21+6 today. You should hear her moving. Will not stay on the monitor.

I only have one girl and I hardly ever felt her move. Right now I'm pregnant with boys # 5 & 6 and they never stop. My boys have all been very active in utero. My girl was the lazy one. Lol

Hope everything turns out alright.  I'm 29 weeks 4 days with our first.  It's a little girl and she's going nuts in there.  Early morning and right before bed it's like she has a jack hammer.  Husband laughs because he can see my shirt moving from her kicks and jabs across the room.  My sisters were the same way, but they all had boys.

My first and 2nd daughters were very wiggly, my 3rd and 4th daughters not as much, my son was much more wiggly than DD's 3 & 4 but not as much as 1 & 2.

I've had one of each, and I couldn't tell any difference in the amount they moved around.

I have all girls. My first two I rarely felt at all. My third was a mover. I think every baby moves differently.

I've had two boys and a girl. This last boy is by far the most wiggly and active
