Baby kicking Toddler

So i am about 20 weeks pregnant with my 2nd child. i recently startedf feeling her kick and move around (best part of pregenancy! :) ) and have noticed that she seems the most active when i am holding my current daughter (Candace, almost 18mnths old). So now im wondering if maybe the "belly baby" can sense that her big sister is near or if maybe she is feeling squished.. Candace still fallls asleep and drinks her milk and just relaxes while laying across my lap which does put some weight on my belly but i make sure to keep as much of her weight in my lap as possible,, so my question is this : is it dangerous or harmfull to the "belly baby" for Candace to be somewhat on my belly??

No its not as long as she is not jumping on your belly the baby is surrounded by so much water almost nothing like that will bother it but the pressure maybe making it push out for more room. My son used to kick me when I would push on my belly or when the were doing ultrasounds he would kick back
