I complete 40 weeks today, since morning baby has been extremely active through out the day with only a few hours of no activity. I have actually felt baby move almost all the time.. the movements are extremely strong and literally feels like baby will tear me apart and come out. it's very different from the normal movements I feel daily. I am worried that is there is a possibility of baby being in any kind of distress? experts pls guide and respond.

Dear Sanha, I don't think that's the case, being said that I know being a first time mom we have all sorts of questions and thoughts in our mind. When is your next check up due ?? make sure you feel baby movements around 10-12 times a day. the few hours when there was no activity the baby must be resting :) so you relax too, and sleep as much as you can and take plenty of rest, as soon you will be on your toes. all the best and take care

By 40 weeks, your baby has grown to a full size and that makes you feel the movements stronger than ever. Hold on in there and consult your doctor about inducing labour.

after 11pm ....I feel movement of baby continues.. there is any problem with baby in womb???

Sheeba Vijesh

more movements mean baby is fine.. its less movements that should be worried about... Vishakha Tanna, my baby would start kicking at exactly 11pm every night... I would wait for 11pm... Relax and enjoy 😊
