Too Much Movement

Nicky - March 25

I am 20 weeks and the baby has been kicking now for several weeks- HARD. You can see my stomach bounce if you happen to be looking. You can even see his head moving beneath the surface- I think it is his head, feels like the size of a lightbulb, This being my first baby, I was shocked that he moves with such force. Can this be normal? Is something wrong?

I would not make much of it, as some kids can be more active than others. About 5% of fetuses fall in to this category. In the scientific community the reason for excessive fetal movement remains unclear, but it has not been linked to any specific problems. Now that said, I would suggest you run it by your pract_tioner to be safe.
