I seriously feel my son kick every hour. Not just one or two kicks, I mean he moves around like he's playing football. Only time I don't really feel him for more than an hour is when I'm sleep (when he will finally ease up n let me go). This is new to me my girls barely kicked, they were more chilled. I'm wondering if I should bring this up to my Dr. or is this normal

Whitney has been super active, but the last week has slowed down. I figure things are just getting more cramped. Now she wiggles more than full kicks. But I rarely go more than 1-2 hours without feeling her.

I think it's normal. All my pregnancies, the babies have been kick/wiggle crazy. It does slow down toward the end tho, and that's normal too.

Patti is very active. She'll take a couple breaks during the day, but she moves around a lot. I've even gotten a few good kicks that actually startled me. LOL!!

I feel him every couple of hours, I don't feel him every hour. Occasionally I'll feel him moving around in the middle of the night but only if i'm awake for a bit!

Lately my little man barely moves. I think he's been going through growth spurts. It goes from barely feeling him a few days to feeling him more and then not as much.. I get worried but then have to drink a cold glass of water and sit for an hour and count movements and know he's ok.

Dominic moves like crazy!! Almost every hour i feel him kicking and rolling! The only time I don't feel him for awhile is when I am asleep. I swear he is doing karate in there or something!

She's a mover for sure. I think it's more noticeable when she's quiet now than when she's moving. My last baby was sooo chill and moved at certain times of day, this one is crazy like my first and third child. I'm hoping she's not a wild child like them!

I don't think I feel her every hour, but I know I feel her a lot. I got worried last week and laid on my side to do a kick count and I felt her move at least 20 times in just 10 minutes. It was pretty funny. She's super active around 9pm pretty much every night.

You could mention it to your doctor if you like but it sounds normal to me. Baby Rose has been the most active she has ever been this past week! I think my body caught up and made more room for her and seriously the only time I don't feel her is right when I wake up but even then there has been a few jabs here and there... Your little guy might just have a lot more room and once he grows will run out of it again and not move as much

Okay I was a lil worried. You would think this was my first kid. The girl pregnancies was way different I didn't have any of the pregnancy symptoms or issues I have with this one. The girls was chill n kicks were all soft. I feel like my son is trying to kick field goals.

Our little guy is pretty active too, especially this last week. I swear it feels like his kicks have doubled in force! Like FL Mama was saying about her LO, there have definitely been a couple of times where it startled me if I was concentrated on something. One of my favorite things to do as I'm lying in bed at night is to watch my stomach... all of his turns and wiggles

I don't feel her a ton to begin with but the last week or two I feel her a lot less (but still enough to not concern me). I was thinking growth spurt too, and confirmed my suspicions yesterday when I noticed three new DARK stretch marks on my tummy lol

my little dude is wiggling up a storm as I type this. Unless I'm moving around I feel him all the time. I felt him do a full flip the other day and it startled me. I thought my uterus was falling out of my body. Oh, and he gets hiccups ALL the time.

I do hold my breath every morning until I start feel him moving around. This stage scared me to death with my daughter because she stopped moving a few times.

Levi has been moving a lot lately. He usually stops at night, but last night I woke up to lots of kicking.

I noticed a lot more movement almost 2 weeks ago. I have a preg. app on my phone and it said between 24-28 weeks movement picks up and then it slows down because baby gets bigger. I am glad I read that, because I can take these really big kicks in stride knowing it won't last long.

I notice her kicking most when I am hungry but am ignoring it... hehe

It seems like once a month she will go through a couple of days of just sleeping and will hardly move at all. She'll give me a kick if I poke at her, but otherwise nothing. But other than those couple of days, she moves constantly. I swear she has four arms and four legs
