22 weeks, so how much movement can you feel?

This is probably going to seem ridiculous, but if it's not worrying one way it's another! I feel absolutely loads of movements, I swear I never had so much last time (anterior placenta both times but I think it was lower at this stage last time as I vaguely remember it being mentioned at the scan). Am paranoid that having artificial sweeteners/being on the laptop/any random fear not backed up by science (I've looked!) has made my baby some kind of endless movement machine and when he's born he'll not stop at all and never sleep and it will be horrible!!

This might be influenced by the fact my 7 year old is an endless ball of energy and never stops, though he sleeps well and always has done and well, isn't that too good to be true?!?

Is it normal, or have I just completely forgotten as it's been 7 years?!?

I know I should be grateful, just a few short weeks ago I was worrying like mad about not feeling anything!

I felt a lot of movement from very early on. My little girl was particularly active during the night when I was pregnant. She's now 8 weeks, very laid back and sleeps pretty much through the night.

I feel practically everything. Midwife said it was due to me being slim & little belly fat - in fact you can se the baby moving! DP is able to put his hand on my belly and feel baby.

I am 22 weeks too and gave been feeling full on movement for last couple of weeks and more random flutters from about 18 weeks. In fact I felt the first kick with my hand on my tummy tonight!!!!! Sooo cool. She is nicknamed the Wriggler and is at it as I text!! Xx

I'm 21 weeks and my little one tends to wriggle a lot when I've just woken up, if I'm sitting still, if I'm hungry and when I've just got into bed. Loving it smile

I've just turned 22 weeks and probably get about 20-30 kicks a day (on 8 already) - movement started out as occasional kicks during the day and more kicks in the evening after dinner, now they are in little clusters, often when I'm hungry/have eaten, to music, and just randomly grin

Hoping the move to daytime kicks means LO will be sleeping at night and stay that way!

I've had my twins 5 weeks ago and i began to feel movement at 16 weeks. At first it started what i can only describe to be 'butterfly' sensation very low down and gradually it was kicks all over, higher up but especially to the left side. I hardly felt movement on the right side.
