    My first two babies I didn't notice them being active during labour. My 3rd born 7 weeks ago however was very active between contractions. I remember commenting on this to the mifwife because I'd heard/read that babies tend to get very still/quiet before/during labour. I think it's yet ANOTHER of those things that depends on each individual baby and pregnancy.

    My DS was pretty active, he was also wriggling his head around before he was totally out which they said was uncommon, he was very keen to get out and it only took 2 contractions and 2 pushes!

    I don't remember DS being active during labour. But DD - wow. I actually wanted her to stop kicking me. She was going nuts. What is interesting is that she was sooo active through my whole pregnancy - right up to the minute I went into labour - and she has been the most active baby/toddler/kid. She runs rings around DS who I would say is fairly active himself.
