    My little boy was quite a mover, flipper and kicker to the point where he would wake me up at night (and during the day when I was resting). He actually came out 2.5 weeks early because he stopped moving and that was so unlike him my OB said it was go time.

    Now he's definitely full of beans when he's awake but he's a good nighttime sleeper (we get at least 10 hours straight) and he's been that way since about 12 weeks. His day time sleeps were crap but I'm finding over the last month or so, with me doing a bit of sleep training with him, they're improving too. He's a happy little fellow - very cruisy and calm, just very, very busy.

    DS was a super active and strong bub but pretty relaxed by nature now but not the best sleeper. Has really needed a firm routine and sleep cues.

    Hi @ScubaGal my DD would move and kick pretty much 24/7 in utero, any breaks in kicking were short and sweet!

    She's a very active kid and needs input when she's awake but a great sleeper. Slept through from 6 weeks. Didn't sleep in the day for about the first 8 weeks but we finally have a routine now that works. I was always told cos she was moving heaps at night it meant she'd be a crap sleeper but she's not.....Probably another one of the old wives tales!!!

    My DS was very active in my tummy and is always full of energy now at almost 2. He's also not a great sleeper.

    But, I know people who's bubbas were also super active who now have quiet, placid, babies who are awesome sleepers.

    Sorry but yes x6. The quiet ones on the inside were the ones with the quiet personality the actives ones are active kids and the super hyped on th inside have adhd.

    Didn't affect their sleeping but just their wakeful times. Once their eyes open they are running, jumping etc...

    Even as teens and adults they have keep that part of their personalities

    Dd is exactly like this. Always an awesome but I have trouble keeping up with her energy now.

    Ds is only 6mths bit already on the move so I'd say the same goes for him!

    I wonder if being a very active bubba might equal better quality sleep if they are tiring themselves out completely when awake... That's certainly the case for my DH.

    DD was a super active baby in utero. She still is active. But she's an incredible sleeper. 7pm-6ish every single night.

    Since she was like 3 days old she's slept the night through.

    DD was super super active on the inside and she came out the same. She never stops, she is very full on BUT she slept beautifully.

    DS was very different. I had to poke, prod and drink icy drinks to get any movement! He had me worried most of my pregnancy due to very little movement. He came out a very chilled out little dude. He just slotted right in but he was and still is a terrible sleeper!!
