Active baby bump question

I'm 21 weeks with my first and for five weeks or so I have been in doubt if what I can feel is the baby moving or not.

Well, a few days ago, I felt a kick on the outside of my belly so now I am sure.

My baby seems to hardly sleep at all, just wiggles, squiggles, punches and kicks. (It's nice so far, I'm not complaining.)

Does a more active baby in utero = a more active baby after birth? It particularly likes to have a dance party at about 2am which wakes me up every night and keeps me awake for a couple of hours. Is that going to be a theme for the next year?

Ime yes! Dd1 was a right wriggler and is the same now aged six!

When you move around it rocks the baby to sleep. You tend no to notice less movement then as you are busy. When you stop moving the baby wakes up. This one of the reasons babies are nocturnal when they are born.
