A friend and I were talking about birth and she asked if the baby moved during contractions. Now I for the life of me cannot remember. So my all knowing ladies... Do babies move during contractions?!

Baby movement and contractions

I'm pretty sure DS did kick during a few of my contractions making it all the more painful!

When their head is engaged they can still move their arms and legs around whilst in labour. I suppose whilst ur having a contraction baby may move less as they're being squished a bit. More likely is that u won't notice they're moving as ur distracted by the contraction.

I don't recall either of my girls moving at all once labour started. They probably moved, but I didn't notice it.

I'm pretty sure they do. When i'd pushed DS2's head out, i could feel him wriggling around inside still.

Yep my boy was thrashing about on his way out, through the contractions. It was a bizarre sensation.

I definitely know DD was going nuts early on. I thought it was her causing the 'cramps', not realising they were contractions.

I thought about it more last night and I remember earlier on she was moving around as they eased off. That's about all I can remember lol.

Im wondering if anyone else can remember bubs movements? Sorry for stealing the thread but i have been in a lot of pain, aching and discomfort today and I cant tell if it is just the baby being super rough with me or if labour is indeed on its way? I dont have any regular contractions - just back pain, period type pain, stabbing pains. The baby is moving heaps, pushing really hard on the inside of my hips and cervix and i have a lot of cervix pain.
Im 40+1 today.
