Is there a such thing as too much fetal movement?

My baby has been moving so much tonight its unbelievable! Since dinner, he has been rocking and rolling in my tummy like crazy. At first I thought it was so cute, but now I am wondering.....could this be a cause for concern? I'm 37.5 weeks pregnant and went to the docs earlier today. Everything was fine. Its now 11pm and he has been moving constantly since 7:30pm. Well, he has stopped for five or ten minutes here and there, but that's about it. Last night he was really quiet. Maybe he's making up for it?

Im sure baby is just getting ready to come out, hopefully he's head down, and not flipped back over, anyway I wouldnt be worried at all, I dont think there is such thing as too much movement, The cause for concern would be no movement

Re: Is there a such thing as too much fetal movement?

I, just like you worried about that as well with my first pregnancy. My ds was all over the place and seemingly constantly on the move. Every prenatal appointment I had I asked my O/B if there was something wrong. He assured me that "an active babe is a healthy babe!" He said that at every appointment!! By the last month the baby is so crammed in there and very uncomfortable that they spend a lot more time trying to find a comfortable position. I wouldn't worry one bit!! Like Valerie said, worry when there is no movement!!

Valerie-The baby is still butt first. He hasn't moved at all and the doctor says she highly doubts he will move. He's just too big and out of room for such a turn.

Its not that I am that concerned about his movement, I just couldn't believe he was moving so much! In my head I'm thinking "What the heck is he doing?!?!" I tell ya, everyday this boy surprises me. It really is amazing watching the belly move and knowing its a person (who I will see in 10 days) doing all of those acrobatics inside of me.

Re: Is there a such thing as too much fetal movement?

I've been wondering the same too. My little one will be athletic, I'm sure!!! I've recently heard that it's an old wives tale that when the baby slows way down and doesn't move much, that you're about to go into labor. I haven't heard that until about a week or so ago, I thought it was something to think about.

My doctor always told me that alot of activity is good, as long as it doesn't seem like the baby is "panicing"..If I spelled it wrong, atleast you get what I am saying..Good luck, Ralinda
