Ok, I know. I'm NEVER happy. Go ahead and say it, I'm paranoid.
I'm thrilled beyond belief that this little baby moves and for the past 6 or 7 weeks I've been feeling kicks. Lately, this baby boy kicks all the time, all over the place, flips and somersaults and responds to music, sounds, food, etc.
It's wonderful. So what's my problem? Now I'm imagining that there is a problem, like he's panicked. Or distressed, or in pain.
Does a baby kick too much?
Come on ladies, tell me I'm nuts.

I really wondered the same thing about my last baby. It was like cardio kickboxing 24x7 in there! Amazingly, she is super calm on the outside. People could walk by me and see my tummy just bopping and hopping all over the place. She was fine, but I do remember wondering if something was wrong in there.
I actually called my dr a few weeks ago because my baby was moving so much. I just knew that he was distressed but an ultrasound showed he was perfectly fine in there. I guess some babies just kick more than others. plus I think we are more paranoid than other women who have never suffered a pregnancy loss.
Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy
I've wondered the same exact things as you Leia! My little Tasmanian Toren is a 24/7 mover too but so far everything is going well. And apparently he isn't burning too many calories from it, lol
I have wondered if it's normal or if something is wrong but I take it as a good thing now. I feel like it's a blessing because it is the constant reassurance that I need to keep my anxiety down.
Leia, yes you're nuts (joke). I think it's just like some people can't sit still, some babies can't be contained in their wiggles. DH is one of those people who almost always have to be doing something, he even sometimes kicks his foot out when sleeping. But I think it's pretty normal, baby is just trying to get comfy maybe.
