It usually makes me really happy when LO kicks but lately I've been worried that maybe he does it when he's distressed or something as he always seems to when I lie on my back, and I know this is bad so maybe he's kicking in protest?
I think it's just them stretching their legs and exploring their surroundings.
It's possible that you just feel it more when you're on your back, or that he kicks when you lie down as that's when he wakes up. When you're moving around, the baby gets rocked to sleep but when you stop they wake up, which is why babies often kick more at night when you're trying to sleep!
