Broccoli Baby Movement

I like broccoli. Two weeks ago I made broccoli salad, and I have lots of raw broccoli in the fridge now. An hour or less after eating broccoli, the baby moves all around. (One of my girlfriends said it's probably because he has gas from it!) So consider it an experiment for those of you who haven't felt much movement. I'm 31 weeks now with our first baby. I don't know if I feel so much movement because I am this far along, or if it is the broccoli, but it's worth a try. Let me know what happens for you!

Im 31 weeks now too, isn't it crazy how different things make your baby move? If I eat anything sweet or anything cold she goes crazy for a couple of minutes. Did you feel a lot of movement early on in your pregnancy, and its started to slow down?

Sweets do it too! I didn't feel movement until maybe 18 weeks or so. I don't think it's slowing down - sometimes I feel it and see my tummy just moving for a moment or two.

Everytime I eat, he moves. Sweet and cold (like OJ) sends him into overdrive, lol. I did read some article in a magazine that said babies, after a certain amount of weeks, can taste the amniotic fluid and that food you eat gives it a taste. It said that when sweet things were eaten the babies were noted to swallow more and bitter things made them make faces. True or not, I dunno....but was some pregnancy magazine. I thought it sounded cute though. :D

LOL. I haven't tried the broccoli thing,but last weekend I ate a bag of the Cheetos Fire (they are super hot!) A little while after I started eating them the baby starting moving like crazy. I just a__sumed he was happy because when I was in my first and second trimester I craved these all the time,but I haven't ate any in almost 2 months and I think he was really glad to have them again!! Hehe!
