my daughter moved nonstop in the womb and now she's a total wiggle worm. my son was mellow in the womb and he was a totally mellow baby. i don't know if that's just a coincidence or not...

so yeah, some babies move a lot, some less often, but i don't think there's such a thing as too much movement.

im 27weeks and 4days, and i know what you mean
i used to feel my baby kicking sometimes, and somedays were much more than others, but now! omg, its constant movement all the time!
i get up some nights to pee and then it takes me hours to fall back asleep, because the baby is kicking and moving around so much!
But i'd rather my baby move alot than not very much, the more movement means the baby is moving the joints and muscles very well, and keeping active Smile

Your baby will be more active when you are resting/laying down. There is more room. There is nothing wrong with an active baby.

My baby (Blaze, born May 1st) used to make me giggle. he moved so much in the womb. I dont know why, but when he would wiggle around i would get the giggles.

No worries!
I asked my doctor and many others about the same thing. I never mind my baby moving around in there too much but she always seems to have so much energy and I was wondering what might be causing this. . .
Doctor says it's just another sign that she's healthy and enjoying herself in there.
Lately she had slowed down a little more due to lack of space, but I get a lot of elbows to the hips and feet to the ribs. I find it funny and at the same time I feel slightly bad for her having such little space and seeming to spend so much time trying to get comfertable. I guess me and baby have a lot in common lately with the comfort thing. . .

Active baby
Our daughter was born two weeks ago - she moved like crazy until the minute before she was born. An active baby is almost always a sign of well-being, if the baby is not well it will not be very active.
