In general, an active baby is a healthy baby. The movement is your baby exercising to promote healthy bone and joint development. Every pregnancy and baby is different, but being very active is unlikely to mean anything other than your baby growing in size and strength.
Recent studies have shown that the fetus moves more in response to maternal stress and also when the mother is happy. More active fetuses also appear to score higher on a brain maturation test and have better control over body movements after birth.
If you have a very active baby and he suddenly slows down, or vice versa – a more relaxed baby who increases his kicks, labor could start!
(Early labor tends to happen faster if you’ve had a baby before.) Active labor: Here, your cervix is an inch or two dilated and the contractions are more regular and last longer—and They are stronger too! The active stage of labor moves faster, lasting about four to eight hours on average.
A 2001 study published in the journal Human Fetal and Neonatal Movement Patterns found that boys may move more in the womb than girls.
Recognizing the signs of labor before the baby is due can help you feel ready for the birth of your baby. Signs of labor include strong and regular contractions, abdominal and lower back pain, bloody mucus discharge, and ruptured membranes. If you think you are going into labour, call your doctor.
