A preborn baby at 3 months kicks and moves

A book for expectant mothers says the following about preborn babies in the third month of pregnancy:

“You cannot feel these movements, but it is kicking, curling its toes up and down, rotating its feet and wrists, clenching and unclenching its fists, pressing its lips together, frowning, and making other facial expressions…There is still plenty of room in the uterus, so the fetus can swoop and undulate in its own enclosed sea.”
