Patterns?

Ok so me abd my husband have a daily routine. I cook dinner and we sit down and eat together when he gets off work around 6, no later than 6:15. Well yesterday I cooked then got a text from him saying he waa working late. Well I just put the food aside and waited on him to get home. Well around 6:30 my little man started going crazy, he was moving my entire stomach. So I ate a little snack and sat back on the couch and like 10 minutes later he was going crazy again. My question is can he sense a routine and went crazy like that because he realized somethong was different or was it just a coincidence that he went haywire in there when I hadn't eaten dinner by 6:30?

That's why kids are fussy and active when the mom is rushing around trying to cook dinner, after they are born.  They learned the active/restful pattern of the normal day from her when they were in the womb.  Baby was probably hungry, too, looking for a spike in blood sugar that comes from you eating at the normal time.

It very well could be the change in routine, because if you monitor when your baby is active, and up and kicking, (for me) it was around the same time each day, and that ended up being about the same he was up at night when he was born! Babies get a sense of normalcy even before birth!
