What are your baby's movements like? Are they strong and hard or soft and gentle? Does baby have certain times of day that he/she is most active or is baby active all day long? Are baby movements keeping you up at night?

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

He tends to hit/kick pretty hard most of the day, but he's most active at night. He's woken me up a few times.

This baby is very gentle to me most of the time its just rolling around and doesnt really kick more like gently tap dances hahah. There have been a few times I was like uh chill out in there but thats usually after I eat something good. Its usually up during the night but since its not too hard I can sleep through it. Also baby has always been low. Hasnt gotten up into my ribs yet, usually its below my belly button I feel little movements.

Kaelyn is probably getting to the more ''squirmy'' stage now, he must be running out of serious room down there... sometimes he gives me s HUGE kick and it scares me but mostly just squirming alot...

She has no set schedule or pattern of movements. She moves often throughout the day...some days it's just gentle rolls with poking of a foot or hand on occasion. Other days, she's doing the chicken dance in there causing my stomach to move like crazy! If i've been on my feet all day, she's pretty calm until I lay down for the evening...then her kicks are pretty hard and almost painful. She also has days where hermovements are so soft, I have to really pay attention to feel them. If she doesn't move often, I can usually poke my tummy and get her to respond by either rolling or kicking once or twice.
She's definitely running the show!

*Thank you AlexKatieAidenMommy for my awesome siggie*

This little guy is so pokey. He creates some very tender spots. He is really sensitive to being pushed on, so if my pants are digging in, I lean over for too long, or I bump into something, he pokes back. He is doing a lot more long movements, but still lots of kicks, and bumps. The weirdest is when it feels like he is rubbing against my hip bone. Today he moved like crazy all day, but most of the time, late evening is his busiest time. Then I think he wakes up about 4:30 am and wakes me up.

She rolls and jabs! It's getting stronger everyday and she's most active in the early morning and at night. I absolutely love getting in bed and watching my belly. It's probably my fave thing about pregnancy.

She usually kicks pretty hard and wild, which is what I'm used to. But she'll have days where she's more stretching and rolling and slower movements... kind of freaks me out. But it's like that for a day or two, then back to punching and kicking me.

This boy is a kung fu kicker! He's active all the time but moreso at night and early morning are his busiest. He's woken me up a few times but I can usually sleep through his movements if I'm tired enough.

Thanks to Claire1979 for the terrific siggy!

She is super active from like 8pm-11pm every night. I think thats becuase thats the first time all day i usually have to just sit down and relax. He kicks are still pretty hard, but ive been getting big movements as well. She tends to stick her head or butt out of one of my sides all the time, actually pretty painful. I also get a lot of dragging movements, where i can feel it dragging across my belly ( freaky).

I dont typicaly get woken up by it, but if i wake up ill occasionally get a kick or two as i move around.
