    I've heard lots of movement is nothing to worry about too.
    I've noticed Luke is also getting alot stronger and alot more active. I can see him beating my stomach all the time!! Especially at night when it's time to go to sleep. He's sooooo not ready to sleep then.

      Martha, healthy babies move at least 10 times an hour. It's less movement, not excessive movement that you should worry about.

      However, as a nurse I highly value a mother's intuition. If you ever feel like something's "just not right" it never hurts to call your doc. Mind you, they may laugh if you call at 3am because your baby is moving too much, but if you ever think something else is wrong it's never a bad thing to get checked out.

        My daughter did the same thing. Just get used to it, because until he gets into a routine when he is born he will be awake more at night than during the day since that is what he's used to. At least that is what my daughter did. Plus, movement generally puts a baby to sleep..hence riding in the car for hours to put a baby to sleep. But I feel you on being paranoid, I was too, it's only natural.

          I can't add anything to this thread, since I agree with the other gals. Sounds like Noah was just a little antsy last night! He could have been changing positions, or just testing out his new limbs. Hopefully he lets you get some sleep!

            Thank you so much guys! He moved around a lot last night too, just not like that other night.

            He does move around more at night, just nothng like I felt the other night.

            Sarah, I think if I ever feel something isn't "right" I will call. But, ya they may think I am nuts for calling because he was so active.

            Being pregnant is so scary.

              I agree with the others! Active is good! My sister's baby kicked the crap out of her in utero. Now he is almost 11 months old and his is always kicking his R leg around randomly. We call it his "rogue leg." He was kicking me with the rogue leg weekend when he was drinking his bottle.

              Time is going fast, eh? How exciting!

              Soon I will get to post wedding pics, figure I should get some more Philip in first!
