***** Not necessarily. My first child was premature, my water broke with no warning. My second birth they had to break my water. With both my labors I remember the babies being pretty quiet (not moving) for a few days before. :) *****
My son moved A LOT but you do feel like it's more action in there cuz he's grown much larger in the last months. I only have one so I didn't know what to expect which is why I was having labor pains for nearly a week prior to labor and didn't know it. I just thought the extensive amount of weight was putting pressure on things. If you feel ANY cramping you tell your doc.
