He said that next time I have it happen that I should come in and see if they can catch it on the monitor. If they don't catch it between now and my next appointment and I am still feeling it- he may put me on an in home fetal monitor for a few hours a day until they do. He said that there really isn't much else they can do until they know for sure what is causing it- but that I shouldn't worry.

I feel better!
I feel this all the time too mama I thought I was the only one!!! With DS #1 it was just "normal" movements, but this baby boy has those "shaking/spasms" feels so weird...
And I actually worried about seizures as well.

I'm glad everything looked good!!!! I'm willing to bet it's nothing as well, just a difference in how our LO's move and 'shake' in there
