Here's Why Your Baby Moves At Night When You Are Pregnant
Preggos are always excited to feel their baby’s movements inside. As it may seem, every baby turns out to be different while in the womb than after it enters the world. The American Pregnancy Association says that by your seventh or the eighth month of your pregnancy a woman might observe a set pattern in her baby’s behavior and choices. In general, any movement is supposed to be good movement irrespective of what time of the day or when it occurs.
At the gestational period of seven months, your baby is sleeping for most of the time in a day. Psychology Today says that babies doze off for almost 95% of the times, while your baby would still keep moving at a rate of at least 50 times per hour. The pattern might vary on a daily basis, but the movements follow a more predictable pattern as you approach the due date.
Some babies are more active during the day, as suggested by the American Pregnancy Association. You might not always be aware of the movements during the day time as you could be during nighttime. You may not feel the movements while you are steady or if you haven’t advanced much in your pregnancy. The little movements that your baby makes in the form of a hiccup, for instance, might not be felt because you are preoccupied most of the times. But you might feel the movements when they are vigorous or when your baby kicks you forcefully.
One of the reasons that might explain why your baby seems to be more active at nights could be that it is alert at a time when it isn’t feeling any activity or movement around. During the day, while you are moving around a lot, you might almost be rocking your baby into a sleepy mode. When you sleep, that movement stops, and the baby may start wondering what is happening in its surroundings.
Moreover, fetuses also start responding to sound by the seventh month of gestation and even begin to show preferences. It might start recognizing and also show preference to its mother’s voice. If your baby hears new voices in the surroundings, it might cause your baby to become more active. On the other hand, there might be other simple factors such as an untimely snack or what you eat for a snack that will alert your baby. Your baby might also get the flavor of the foods you eat through amniotic fluid. If there is a strong taste, your baby will learn to identify that scent.
If you ever feel that your baby moves around a lot especially at night, you should simply sit down steady for a while in midday. Continue with your routine tasks. Observe if your baby reacts even if you carry on with your daily activities. Make note of any distractions. In case you find your baby being quiet and still, you don’t have to panic at once. It might as well be that your child is developing its pattern of sleeping. But should you indeed notice anything alarming, it might be the time you discuss with your doctor.
