If your doctor has told you that your baby is showing signs of being super active in the womb, you might be wondering what this means.
It is natural to have questions and concerns, but rest assured that super active babies are usually healthy and ready to take on the world!
Let’s break down what it means to have a super active baby in the womb.
What does a super active baby in the womb mean?
Generally speaking, having a super active baby in the womb means that he or she is healthy and strong.
Babies move around all day long, so normal movement should be felt by 18 weeks of gestation.
A super active baby will probably kick more than usual and exhibit more vigorous movement as well.
However, if you feel like something is off with your baby’s movements—like they are too little or too much—you should call your doctor right away just to be sure everything is alright.
What causes super activity?
No one knows for sure why some babies are more active than others, but there are a few theories.
Some experts believe that an extra energetic baby might just have an extra bouncy personality from the get-go; after all, personality starts early!
Others think that it could be due to hormones released by the placenta.
In some cases, it may even be linked to blood sugar levels; babies whose mothers have diabetes may experience higher levels of activity due to increased blood sugar levels in utero.
How can I track my baby’s activity?
If you want peace of mind when it comes to your baby’s activity level, you can track their movements using a fetal monitor or a kick counter app on your phone.
Fetal monitors measure both sound and movement while kick counters allow you to keep track of how many times your baby kicks within an hour time frame over multiple days or weeks.
Both are great ways to make sure that your little one is moving around as much as they should be!
Overall, having a super active baby in the womb can be both exciting and nerve-wracking at times! But rest assured that it usually means that everything is going smoothly with your pregnancy—your little one just has some excess energy!
While there’s no surefire way to tell why some babies move around more than others in utero, tracking their activity with a fetal monitor or kick counter app can help bring peace of mind for parents who want reassurance about their unborn child’s health and wellbeing. Above all else, remember that every pregnant woman and her unborn child are unique—and so are their experiences during pregnancy!
