Do babies wiggle when you're in labour?

I've been wondering about this. Do you get lots of movement as they feel the contractions or does nature tell them to conserve their energy for the big push?

They are pretty squished! The womb basically turns itself inside out to expelled them!

So, if the baby is pushing and stretching like it wants to get out, you dont think it might signal imminent labour? lol

Movement reduces significantly when in labour. You don't feel them much at all.

Not really, I think most women notice a decrease in movement rather than increase around labour x

Remember labour as we know it is actually known as active labour, we are in labour for weeks before that tecniqually, it's only which it get to the point that the uterious has contracted down enough to squash the baby down so it starts opening the cervix etc that we call it 'labour'
