Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Will I feel the baby move if I am having contractions?

2 answers
I am currently 35 weeks pregnant with baby # 4. I am currently having contractions and my lil girl is moving like crazy. I was wondering if anyone else felt their baby move with the contraction?. I didnt feel the contractions with my other pregnacies, because I was induced (plus I had my epidural). This is all new to me. Not sure what to do. Any advice will help.

I am not sure about all women. But I know with my 3 previous pregnancies that my boys were moving and kicking a lot during labor.  They really didn't stop until I was delivering them.  I am assuming when I deliver my 4th baby here that the baby will move and kick then as well.  It just varies from pregnancy to pregnancy and woman to woman.  It is hard to tell if all babies move during labor or not.  I hope I have helped at all.
I have read if it is jerky, panicky movements you should contact your dr. Your baby could be in distress. But I can't tell you if that's what your baby is moving like...only you can.
