Activity After Eating


#1

Hi Ladies,

I’m just curious. I feel activity from the baby about 30 minutes after eat, not all the time. It depends what I ate. I’m wondering does that mean the baby liked what I ate or not?

I’m hoping that she liked what I ate!

Thanks.

[B]this is base on information on different websites… The baby can taste different types of food and may like it even after he or she is born, many people think you’re eating for the baby. Actually the body main priority while pregnant is not the baby but the placenta. It’s main in function is to keep the placenta fully operating as you may say. The placenta absorbs the main vitamins and minerals of the food giving the baby as I would say it’s left overs. In why the baby becomes active after you eat? It’s not that it likes or dislikes your food intake it’s actually because your stomach organs and placenta and all the other organs it take to dissolve your food becomes active in movements and sound and actually wakes up the baby and it may become active after a feeding. Or when they say take some cold water and you will feel the baby move, since the body cannot process cold water it must heat it up in normal temperature making your metabolism fire up to heat the water. Excess sugar intake…like eating a donut will make glucose levels rise up in your body making the baby start moving :slight_smile: [/B]

Thanks ladies!

Diorbeauty_pr - I do notice that if I eat something sweet or sugary, she starts to move around not too long after I eat it. Now, I know it’s the rise in glucose levels!

Around 28weeks, my dr wanted me to start doing “kick counts” although not all drs do this. He told me that after eating, she should kick at least 10 times within an hour and if she doesnt, try and eat something sweet to see if that gives her a boost, and if it doesnt to call into the office. So I know that after eating, no matter what it is, the baby is supposed to move. I do notice that when I eat an apple, she goes nuts kicking lol! So I think there are some things they do like better

[B] hi lilac! Every baby do love those high sugar food lol. I drank coffee everyday though out my pregnancy and I started feeling Emma at 14 wks…she would kick and move after my good breakfast that consisted of waffles, egg, sausage,a banana and a large cup of coffee. There was this one day she didn’t move at all…hours passed no movement, I decided to try something new I had a box of fruity peebles that I didn’t want to eat before…after I ate a bowl she was moving again. Could it be the different taste? Or could it had more sugar than my other food intake? Or was it pure coincidence ? All baby fall asleep in the womb while the mother is active…I remember I went two days straight ti the mall and then work, Emma didn’t move while I was working I thought she always moved when I go to bed, nope she didn’t move that whole night and even the morning…I schedule an emergency appt with my obgyn…on the way nothing, while waiting ro the sonogram no movement…I swear I think it was more than a day…when they called me in and I lay down and the nurse put the gel and left the room , there she decided to start kicking and moving…I believe I was soo active those days she felt right asleep or she was plain lazy. I was really scared that day…and thinking what if…?? :flower: [/B]

Oh this is very interesting! My OB mentioned at my last appt that she will need me to start monitoring the movements later on in the pregnancy, but not right now. She said she was going to go more into depth at my next appt…which is coming up on the 22nd. It’s also the day I’m doing my glucose test!

So we will see if my OB tells me to count the kicks! But this is good for me to do even if she doesn’t instruct me to count kicks. It’d be interesting to see if she kicks 10 times!

Big Hugs!

Awww…that is pretty scary! I would be so scared and worried if it was me. There was a day I literally felt no movement. I started to get a little worried and mentioned to DH a couple of time throughout the day. Then at night, I got into bed, and suddenly felt movement in my pelvic area and in my ribs! So relieved!

I do notice a lot more movement when I slow down like laying in bed or something. The only other times I really feel her move is after I eat.

Now, I’m craving for a bowl of Fruity Pebbles!

Some really easy things to do if you havent felt a kick in a while is to try drinking ice cold water, or drinking orange juice. Plus you can lay flat on your back and within a few minutes you should get a kick. A warm shower sometimes gets them going too!! Or, you can play music by your belly and that might get a response. Those are all things my dr told me to try if she doesnt do the 10 kicks in an hour before calling :slight_smile:

[B]Yep laying on my back made emma move…I always put my iPad on top of my belly while laying in bed , I remember she didn’t like the pressure and was kicked it or moved in that same area. Starting my 7 months she wouldn’t let me sleep, if I slept on my left side she go berserk , if I move to my right she felt better but I grew tired fast and change sides and she kept kicking me. But other than that she was quite lazy. If i was active enough going to the mall and working she will keep quiet for a long time. Now she’s a good sleeper, sleeping 8 to 9 hours straight . They say how your baby acts in your womb is how he or she will be after birth. :)[/B]

Haha…I think my baby will be very active when she’s here then. I’m only about 6 months along but she’s been active well before 6 months. I hope I can handle it! :slight_smile:
