    Default Over active baby!!

    Hi guys, so I'm 20 weeks today, Is it normal to be able to feel the baby kicking violently from the out side so early meaning I've felt them since I was 18 weeks? I'm not very visibly pregnant yet just a very small bump. Am I crazy? Ive been able to feel the baby thrashing about and often my abdomen area becomes very hard, certainly not the "butterflies" my midwife described the first movements as and completely different to my first pregnancy. opinions welcome

    Yes I remember from about then the movements became stronger and stronger. And the hardening of tummy are braxton hicks. These will get more and more frequent and eventually turn painful when in labour

    Hi. I m 25+4 and feel bub move all the time. Very hard kicks as well and have heaps of braxton hicks when bub moves or if I put my hand on my tummy where my placenta is. Midwife said its normal as its my third pregnancy.
