I'm 26 weeks so a bit behind you but I'm getting lots of movement. Can see my belly moving with big ones, can feel heels and elbows in my side etc.
it feels like very, very strong wind!

I'm 28 weeks and she's moving like mad - she's kicked me nearly all today and sometimes she feels like she's spinning herself around. Sometimes she kicks hard enough that you can see me stomach moving, which I quite enjoy grin

Hi. I'm also 29 weeks and my baby is moving a lot, especially at night, and when I come back home from work and lie down.

Are you worried yours is not moving enough?

I am 27 weeks and getting an average of perhaps 5 good bouts of movement a day.

Most of the movement is quite distinct pokes, which feel a bit like muscle spasms, but occasionally also turning movements, which are similar to intense feeling of butterflies.

Tummy watching has become my new hobby smile I could even see the cat being jigged about when he was sitting on my bump earlier.

29 weeks here, movements getting more distinctive, some big jabs and rolls but they come in small segments of time...mainly evening. I pretty much worry everyday that it's not moving enough...and then it does and I feel reassured.

How are your movements? If you are worried, do talk to your mw.

Hi, I am 29+6 and get bouts of movement about 5-6 times a day, usually somewhere along the lines of 6am, 9am, 1pm and then the same 12 hours-ish later. However, it is not always as regimented as this and can vary, but this seems to be my general pattern at the moment. I have an anterior placenta so have been reassured that I am likely to feel movements less obviously/often than most other women. Get to know what is normal for you.

The great thing is that now I can see my stomach move when she has a wriggle or punch, and my dh has made 'first contact' too, so he is very happy. Some of them make me wince so I assume she has less room to manoeuvre in there.

I am nearly 30 weeks and I was worried the baby was slowing down. My consultant told me today so long as the pattern remains the same the frequency is not such an issue. I get various prods and nudges in the morning, pretty much nothing in the afternoon and then late evening there are a few kicks and shoves. I can feel when she turns as well. This I notice at night too when I get up for one of my many toilet trips! They don't move around as much in terms of changing direction (the head had been down the last two weeks or so) I was told. It's more limbs moving around and they turn from front to back. There is just less room for them to do the cartwheels earlier on. It's exciting smile

I worry sometimes too but all normal movement apparently smile
