Schedules?

Have you noticed any sort of schedule with your LO as far as awake periods??? I never had that with DS, and he is still pretty inconsistent, but I have noticed this one has pretty regular active times. Around 7:30, 10, 2:30, 5 and 9:30...

What about you?

No - the kicks are so few and far between that I can't tell a pattern yet. However, I did feel her in the middle of the night the other day and we had a little talk about night waking Smile

Mine are going crazy these days but it doesn't seem to be on a schedule, mostly it's based on what I'm doing. They're at their worst when I first lie down to bed, they go crazy with spicy, cold or sweet foods, and the bottom one shoves me if I lean forward too far.

Mine is very quiet so long as I am on my feet. It's almost like me walking around makes him sleep. But once I lay down to sleep or sit down to take a break he becomes a wrecking ball and is all over the place!!

Hmmm, I think I'll start paying attention & see if I can find anything.

I haven't noticed a schedule at all. I think he just moves intermittently all day long and whether I feel it or not depends on what I'm doing. I might *think* oh wow he's more active at night... but that is also when I'm actually sitting on the couch and more capable of feeling him. I pretty much feel him anytime that I'm still for a few minutes Smile

I am like Carolyn, mine feels like she's more active in the evenings, but that's when I am least active, so it might just be that I'm sitting still. But here recently I have noticed that I can feel her more when I am standing or walking, maybe because she's getting bigger.

She still feels super low at times, like she's sitting way down on my bladder sometimes. Anyone else's LO's still feel really low? I feel a few wiggles up higher sometimes but mostly it's pretty far down. Maybe I'm just carrying her low...

I noticed that baby is most active when I am not active as well. Especially after I have a cold drink, a big meal or something sugary. The more I am moving around the less I feel baby, I think maybe it just rocks him/her to sleep? I can often feel strong kicks right in the middle of the night when I wake up - don't think they are strong enough to wake me up yet but I am sure that will come ;). I read babies keep the schedule they establish for a little while after birth.. if that's true I need to try to switch this baby to be more active during the daytime asap! Biggrin

I notice lots of movement right after I eat, and whenever I lay down.

Hmm, sometimes I notice it after eating, but not always. In the morning she kicks a bit, then seems quiet for a few hours. Afternoon she seems to be awake again, then gets a little quiet around dinner sometimes. Every night while lying in bed she definitely gets going though!

I definitely notice her more right after I eat, especially fruit or something sweet. She also gives me a good jab if I bend over too far. One thing I am happy about so far is that she doesn't seem to be very active while I am sleeping, but then again, maybe I just don't notice while I am asleep.

Yes! I was just thinking about this the other day. Around 9-10 pm and again around 1 am are the most active times. The 9-10 pm one is nice because I can usually just enjoy that little moment with the LO. But the 1 am one is actually keeping me from sleeping these days! :rolleyes: Ah well. I know I'll miss this someday Wink

My first one was mostly active in the evening when I was going to bed.

This little girl seems to move all the time and I haven't noticed a pattern yet, except that she often stops when I put my hand on my belly to feel her.

My little guy is still super low as well. I've never felt him move even remotely close to my belly button. All his movement is right at my pants line and lower. He is definitely happy being at the bottom of my uterus. I, however, do not enjoy his little jabs "down there" I swear his foot is going to come out sometimes!

My girl's the opposite. She is all over my belly button. I can usually push on it & feel a little limb or something whiz by.

Connor is very active from 10 to 12pm and then off and on. He has been becoming more active around 6am I think he can hear dh alarm and it bugs him lol

This morning she was moving and I felt her more. It was like her heel gets caught between a layer of something and my top rib. Earlier I kept poking her little foot back in because it was hurting so bad. I can rub her head too since she is so low and to the right, lol. I feel a tiny little "ball" where the OB said her head was.

Wow, that's cool! I get all freaked out when I feel a body limb and tend to not explore it further haha. It feels weird to touch it for some reason! Mostly like the knees or bony things like that...

I love knowing what I am touching. With DS his butt was pressed up against my side so hard towards the end that you could see the lump. I was flat on one side and you could see butt on the other.

No patterns here... he just goes buck wild whenever he wants to lol! I do notice him more at night, but I think that's because it's the first time of the day that I'm laying down and have two seconds to myself, so I'm sure I just notice it more.
