How much do babies move? I thought I felt a possible kick on the left side a few hours ago, and just now felt one on the right side. Maybe one of those was not a kick - or could baby have turned all the way around in a few hours?

When I had my scan at 22 weeks I was amazed at how much the baby was moving when I couldn't feel it, considering how much movement I could feel IYKWIM so the answer is loads. My little guy was doing rolls and somersaults in there and it was only occasionally that I could feel his little kicks. So the answer is LOADS :o0

I've been feeling pretty strong movements since about 18 weeks. They are so strong now that they keep me awake during the night. And my belly goes all lumpy depending on where the baby is lying. That could have been a kick but once you feel one, you should feel more again soon. The best time to feel them is when you are lying down in bed and everything is quiet. Soon, you will be able to feel them with your hands as well.
