that the baby developes it's sleeping pattern while still in the womb. Brianna is up and active everynight at 11 on clockwork and at 4 am.. i know they say that because your not standing anymore the baby is more active without that swaying motion but is this how shes going to be when she comes out? Id actually be thrilled if she was so im crossing my fingers..
I've been told by my midwife that it's true, from about week 32 i think it is, you can feel their sleeping pattern and they tend to stcik to it. Obviously it can change once they're born but apparently a majority keep the sleeping pattern they had in the womb
I'd be so lucky if they kept their sleeping pattern after they're born, but somehow I doubt that'll happen. My baby stops moving around 11 at night and doesn't really wake up until about 5:30 am when the alarm clock goes. Sometimes I don't feel any movement until my fiancee and I start talking in the morning, like on weekends. Usually though, I get movements around 5:30 ish and throughout the day, but I usually don't feel anything at night. I'm sure things will be totally different when the baby comes out and needs to be fed and changed and everything else, but I can always fantasize about a baby with the exact same sleep patterns as me.
I don't think it's true ... but ya never know
Also even though we don't always feel the baby , that doesn't mean she isn't moving ... I've had a few stress tests and so on done at the maternity ward and there is this test they do that measure's fetal movement's I was shocked at how often she was moving and I didn't even feel it!
but if it IS true ... I'm done for she wakes me up out of a dead sleep almost everynight busting around in there!
I'm a human development major currently. It's totally true. However, it probably isn't as regular as most parents would like, nor will it probably continue as they try to adjust to their "real world" lifestyle.
They sleep more during the day since they are being rocked by you walking, etc. When you lay down, the uterus stretches enough for the baby to stretch out too and wake up. They do have a pattern in the womb, if you record the kicks you will see they are at the same each day. Also, they have a feeding schedule already when born - and like clockwork you will see them wake up hungry every 2 or every 3 hours.
I am not sure if this is true or not but i was told that your baby keeps somewhat the same pattern and schedule as in the womb, that would be nice i feel him all day off and on and then at night it seems to depend on when i lay down he wiggles around for about ten mins and then i don't feel him again until sometimes 5:30 or even closer to 7am.
