    I always thought that babies went a bit quiet before labour, but mine has become more active! I realise I am not in labour yet, but it is presumeably imminent and yesterday and today he's been moving loads.. big movements, quite painful infact, and in different places to before.

    Is this normal??

    I would say that my wee soilder has been moving much more than he used to and the movement are quite painful at times.

    I always thought that the movements decreased when baby had engaged, but as he's only 1/5 engaged, I asumed that it was normal.

    Maybe it is a positive sign if the 3 of us are experiencing this and are all waiting on our wee monkeys to make an apperance. xxx

    My little boy seems quite active these days too, although it's not constant. at times i can tell he's sleeping, but when he does move the movements and kicks are quite strong (but never painful)

    Little miss can be very aggressive, some of her kicks are EVIL :evil: and quite painful... but has been more so the past week or so... but I don't think I'm in any danger of going into labour any time soon... :think: beside I can't have the baby before xmas, I promised Tia.. :shock:
