I am 33 weeks and have been experiencing the baby "twitching". Not the normal rolls and kicks I have been used to feeling. Has anyone else had this? I don't remember this feeling in my first pregnancy, but it was 6-years ago. I just need some re-assurance.

I know exactly what your talking about. Alot of the other girls I talk to who are pregnant have it frequently, I haven't had it to much in my pregnancy though. (im 30 wks) but it is the baby having hiccups. Some people describe it like its shaking or almost like baby is having a seizure feeling. Don't worry it's totally normal it is from the baby drinking amniotic fluid and then developing hiccups. It's totally normal. Hth!

I thought that to at first, but when she gets the hiccups, they are like a pattern and are more than one. This is when she is in the middle of moving around, so I dont think its that. But thanks for the advise. Maybe it is for all I know. I'm just a worry wart!!

I was 32 weeks at the time when I was brought into hospital dehydrated and had high ketones. One of the midwives came round to check my blood pressure and to listen to the babies heart beat and could hear the lil one having a case of the hiccups and I could hear it also....She said it was nothing to worry about so then I lay back and listened some more, I found it cute...But it didn't last too long.

My baby nearly has daily hiccups...Aparrently he's trying to exercise breathing and takes in too much amniotic fluid...I think it's too cute for words :lol:

"twitching"
I think I know what u mean, i'm almost 35 and every once in a while my belly will quake and tremble (other than the kicking). I have no idea what it is, sorry. But i'm not too concerned about it. Any movement is better than none, in my opinion.
