Just that really!

Currently 29+2 and being kicked to smithereens in here. I cant remember DS1 being this active this early. Already i can see the punches and kicks through my clothes, sometimes it feels like DC is doing a boxing trial in there with the amount of punches/kicks in such a small space of time!!

I have Gestational Diabetes and the consultant and sonographer both did say that due to the excess fluid caused by GD the baby is in a big swimming pool, so is that why? the baby does have more room to play hence the aerobics grin

OR - and that is a big OR - have i got a naturally feisty bambino? As i say DS was active but nowhere near close to this, he has always been quite a passive baby/toddler. I know you never get two DC the same so me and DH are wondering quite what we have let ourselves in for hmm grin

Watching this with interest, as at my last 3 scans and my midwives appointments the technicians/doctors/midwives have all commented on how very wriggly and active my baby is, with slight hints of surprise in their voices - I'm tired just thinking about keeping up with her after she's born smile

I have 2 DC (17 and 7) who were very active in the womb and who have always been very active and very feisty individuals. My other DC (13) was very calm in the womb and has remained calm as a child.

Dd1 very active at all her scans, literally pogoing around in there! Became a very lively toddler, always bouncing! Still a very feisty teenager.....

DD (no 2) very active (much more so than no.1 or no.3 so far) as was a very mellow baby and toddler indeed fricking nightmare 7 year old tantrum fiend

I'm afraid ds was quiet as a mouse in womb and is fairly passive toddler. Same here, this one never stops at 33wks and getting worried what we've let ourselves in for!

I thought DS was very active, he was my first and I felt movements at about 18 weeks and then not for another few weeks. ..he was active after that and is an extremely active baby/toddler, did all the physical things really really early and never stops all day, I don't know any toddler as active

However...I'm 18 weeks pregnant now and felt this one move at 16 weeks and feel strong movements which dp can even feel now!! So......I really hope I am not in for another insanely active obe as it's exhausting.

So far, I only like what TeaAndANatter has to say! Think I may stock up on proplus... smile

My 2 were quiet in the womb, had to do the monitors a couple of times and they are the freakin' busiest feistiest children I know (and honest friends/family). So it doesn't always follow that pattern.
I'm sure you have a calm, placid, amazing sleeper growing inside you right now -fingers crossed.

My ds moved a lot but was a very quiet baby. Slept through from 8 weeks!

This baby moves even more than he did. She is constantly on the go. However, in scans she is stock still and totally uncooperative - turns her back and just lays there, then starts up with the acrobatics just as I stand up. God knows what she'll be like!

I'm 20 weeks and baby's kicks are really strong already, I feel loads. The sonographer said my placenta was at the back though so "you're probably feeling a lot more". Too right, I've been aware of movements for weeks. I'm sure with DC1 I only felt bubbles and flutters around now.

Could that have something to do with it?

This is my third baby and this one is definitely the wriggliest! Even the midwives are commenting as they can't get an accurate heart rate due to little one buggering off every time she puts the Doppler on my tummy. I am 34 weeks and last time I was in the 2nd midwife held bump still so they could hear the heartbeat smile

Ds1 was incredibly active in the womb, the mw said unbelievably so. He is a very peaceful child and at the age of 3.3 still has a long after lunch nap and enjoys a good sit. You nevwr know!

My first two were the quietest in the wombwink
The third is now two weeks old and asleep in her Moses basket grin, she was like the karate kid in the womb and is now the most wriggly baby I've ever metwink
I did have a lot of amniotic fluid carrying her so she had a lot of room to dance lol

Totally know how you feel!!! I'm 28+6 with first baby and I have been seeing feet and hands for last week during pummeling sessions! At least m/wife appointment he started on her when she was trying to listen to his heart. I'm quite small naturally and bump is still fairly small so I keep getting told, are you similar?
Bloody uncomfortable too isn't it!! Why do they particularly like to start their games at 2 in the morning as well?!

My DS was incredibly wriggly in the womb and still is at 18 months old.

i am liking the stories of wriggly babies in the womb turning into placid bubbas!

mummycherry i am a really curvy size 16 (or so Pepperberry/Bravissimo tell me! wink ) and my bump is big - but that is mainly due to the Gestational Diabetes, they are hoping that my bump will stabilise now i am on the GD diet
