This baby has not stopped since 5 am doing summer salts and kicking and punching me. Now its more than normal and i am freaking there maybe something wrong if its that active, I know i sound mad but this is my first. its vibrating around in there and has made me jump a few times.
It's natural to worry - especially as it's your first, it's what us mummies do!! Your baby is probably just kicking up it's heels and having a party in there - it's when it's not active that means there could perhaps be a problem. If your really scared, ring your midwife so she can put your mind at ease.
OK I feel better now i was worried it was caugt up in there struggling or something. It had me leaping off the sofa but my mum has said we all done that on her to. And it was so bad with my brother near the end her stomach was visably bruised! its just a bit freaky wonderig if baby is ok down there.
as for midwife i aint met mine yet i apparently will after next scan. They only give yuo one really after your baby is born thats it.
I do worry when its quiet down there though and do attempt to wake it which i shouldnt as not i am being beat up. its calmed down now though.
I worry to much. I fancy one of them scanners they have at the hospital in my house lol
Mine's felt loads more active than normal today too - I put it down to the fact that he's getting stronger so I'm feeling more kicks than before. Could see my stomach moving with the kicks in the bath earlier and I've never seen that before.
Honestly my doctor told me when you're baby is starting to act out of wack and move way too much then normal then you should call the hospital. Out of wack meaning crazy movements. When I mean crazy I mean nuts. I had a friend whos baby was moving way too much then normal and she called her doctors office. They wouldn't see her. She went to her next scan and the baby had passed away. I am not here to scare you but you should never get a diagnoses on the net. If you're baby stopped moving as well obviosly you should go to the ER. To tell the difference between hiccups and kicks hiccups have a pattern. It is a constant exact same pattern. Where youre tummy nudges every second. I think you can tell if it is hiccups or movement. I know I was able to. I am now on my 4rth baby.
I so feel your 'pain' (not actually pain..but you know what I mean!) I was thinking yesterday that I hadnt felt very much in the way of movement yet..I thought maybe a couple times there was a little flutter..but I couldnt be sure. So last night ALL night..Batman was kicking me! I lay in bed all night being beaten up.
