baby moving a lot ... how much is normal?
Just wondering how much movement is 'normal'? I'm 22 weeks 5 days and this is my first pregnancy. My little girl moves A LOT! Sometimes it feels like she is having a fit or something. I just wanted reassurance that it was normal and that she is okay

My little girl never stops moving... They told me at 24 weeks to start doing kick counts.. I laughed because a few days prior she had kicked, squirmed, moved, nudged, whatever like 45 times in 10 minutes.. All they look for is 10 in an hour!!! Its find though. It is when they hardly move at all or stop moving that there is a concern.

There will be times when baby doesn't move for a bit, because their sleeping or cramped up from how youre sitting, and later in pregnancy the movements may not be as strong. If you become concerned (like if they don't love at all like I was saying from being asleep or you're body cramping them up) stretch out on your.left side and drink some ice cold water, apple juice, chocolate milk, or even a little soda and.wait for an hour max if still no.movement consult your OB. Other wise baby moving a lot is a great sign!!!!

It all depends on the baby I suppose, and the time frame. I'm 33 weeks and hardly notice my boy at all unless his movements are mega strong, but I may just be so used to the little ones that I do not notice them. I think the worst part of pregnancy is the paranoia of the baby moving enough. I know it bothers me a lot too, but so far the doctor says he's fit as a fiddle and I've nothing to worry about!

Mine move and kick non stop for days. It's sign of a very active and healthy baby. I mention it to my doctor one time and she just laugh and said good, we only worry if it's the other way around.
So enjoy :)

Also, mine will kick non stop for days and follow by a couple of lazy days so don't freak if that happen to you too. Just drink some cold water and lay down with hands on belly and as long as you feel movement all is good.
