    Default Active in-utero = wakeful baby?

    Hi all, not sure if I've put this in the right section. I'm just under 4 weeks from due date with a very active little boy and a few people have said that active in the womb means active on the outside. I'm wondering if this is always true?

    He kicks pretty regularly throughout the day and especially at night, to the point where the kicks can become quite uncomfortable- almost painful even.

    What are other people's experiences? Has anyone had a serious kicker turn out to be very settled once born?

    Anyone noticed differences between boys and girls?

    I don't know if you want my answer! ! Lol
    My DD used to kick and roll so bad I would cry.
    And on the outside. ...super active.
    Even with her medical condition. Her cardiologist said to me one day 'oh she's quite vigorous isn't she'. Lol. Always cracked me up.

    DS used to kick up a storm in there, but he was always been a great sleeper. When he's awake though, he's a real fire cracker!

    My DS was like a MMA fighter in there! I swear my internal organs were bruised! But on the outside he was pretty chilled. Very alert, and easily overstimulated, but so long as we reduced stimulus at sleep times he was fine.

    My DS was a kicker, crap sleeper and super active. I'm hoping my belly girl is the opposite

    I have had two boys. The first didn't stop kicking. He would never rest, once he was born, he was very settled and was sleeping through by 12 weeks. At nearly 7, still a great sleeper.
    My 2nd DS hardly moved inside. I was consistently being monitored by his lack of movement. He is 8 months now and is a sh!t sleeper. He has never slept through the night and is up many times (6 last night)!
    Eta: DS2 was born 8 weeks though.

    Good luck, I think they all have their own personality and sleeping is just the luck of the draw!

    Never thought of the connection. Ds was a super active bub, he is like an energiser bunny now always has to be doing something. Doesn't sleep great either

    It is the same here. At 13 months he still hates sleep!

    Dd2 was like the energiser bunny especially at night, and always the same time every day/night. When she was born she was the most placid and quiet baby, but funnily enough the times she was her most active in the womb was the same times she woke for a feed on the outside. She is nearly 5 now and still a very placid and quiet little girl.

    On the flip side, dd3 was a very quiet bubba before being born but from the moment she was born she has been my little fire cracker!
