I’ve noticed when I lean too far foward she usually gives me a swift kick in the belly. She’s just started having distinct kicks in the past few weeks and my husband can finally feel her move. Hopefully I’ll start noticing some other patterns, I think around 7 am she’s been most active. How about you guys, anything you’d do that would make your baby feisty?

While playing World of Warcraft, Addie always used to kick like crazy when we enterred Stormwind. Something about the music, I guess…
And she would go crazy during Mass every single Sunday. We used to joke that she was either a priest or a demon! Lol!

The only thing that distinctly made him move was just drinking juice and laying on my side. Worked every time.
Otherwise he was a pretty chill little guy.

If I haven’t eaten in a while and I eat something, especially something sweet/sugary. If I sit and am leaning toward one side, he’ll move and start kicking. He’s most active in the middle of the day and from about 10pm to 1am.

Orange juice and Afro-carribean music were her things!

My husband talking loud (usually on xbox), me laying down to go to sleep, and any time I rock another baby (which happens daily at work). Apparently she’s an attention hound already.

These babies tend to move after I eat and like Mrs. Spring I get a lot of movement at Mass – I’m hoping that means they’re little angels (ha!)
I have only been feeling them for a couple weeks so the movements are getting progressively stronger and I’m sure by May I’ll be watching four feet and four hands and elbows poking their way around!

Soy milk! My little munchkin loved it and swam around everytime I drank it!

We used to joke that our son was a ninja, haha.
I don’t remember specific actions or stimulus that caused him to kick in utero, but I DO remember that he was most active between the hours of 12pm and 4pm.
Maybe he liked the sunshine 🙂

I’m 26 weeks now and it seems like she’s always moving but earlier, cranberry juice would get her going every time. Once, I drank something like 16oz of cran juice before bed and she went NUTS. I could not fall asleep with her kicking me like that.

I always feel him after I eat, guess he loves food, haha! And he always starts kicking as soon as I lay down for bed and first thing when my alarm goes off in the morning he’s already dancing around.

At 32 weeks, it’s getting more active in there. Like @Mrs. Spring: & @AnamCara:, the Kid moves around during Mass. On a daily basis, he moves around when I get up (usually gives me a good kick to get me out of bed after my alarm goes off for the 2nd or 3rd time…takes after his dad in kicking me out of bed!), around 9pm to 11pm, and lately, right around 10:30am to 11:30 – that hour right before I eat lunch. The first time I KNEW I was feeling him, I was at Disneyland, listening to & watching the fireworks – he went NUTS! About an hour later, we were at CA Adventure watching the World of Color & he went nuts AGAIN. Now, everytime we’re watching fireworks with accompanying music, the Kid is leaning up against me or twirling around in there…takes after me on that one – I LOVE fireworks & epic music! (And, no, he doesn’t really respond to one or the other alone…but light shows & music together get him going)
