Good Lord, I hope not... because i'm in for it if that's the case!

I just got back from an NST and the doctor said that everything was fine as far as he could see. He said that it could be anything from fetal stretching to seizures (which he then clarified are RARE!) 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!

Mine did that quite a bit when he was smaller, and I just thought it was weird. It never really concerned me a whole lot, and it seems that since he doesn't have much room left to move around, he doesn't do it anymore.

Mine did that for a while - it felt like she would get the shivers almost but stronger. Now that I think about it, she hasn't done it in a couple of weeks - I'm 34 weeks now.

Sometime last week, I started noticing the baby shaking or spasming for about 10-12 seconds at a time. I will be 30 weeks along on Friday and it happens 1-3 times a day. Gradually, I have realized that I can tell when these fits are coming because I start to get crampy before hand.

I chalked it up to crazy fetal stretching or something until last night when I was cramping so bad that I could hardly put my hands behind my back. I think the cramping is BH contractions, and they are getting worse, but I wonder if it is hurting the baby.

Her kicking is frantic- even painful, and it shakes my whole belly; then she doesn't move for a little while afterwards. The rest of the day, she is fine and active and kicking like normal.

I have a call into the nurse at my OBGYN, but I just wonder if anyone has experienced anything similar? Ease my mind!
This happen to me while pregnant with my daughter, it scared me when it first started happening but then i ended up getting used to it and it started happening less frequent. Hopefully your baby is fine, i still don't know what it was, it didnt happen with my pregnancies with my boys, only with my daughter. she is healthy and everything is fine, she does have down syndrome but i doubt that has anything to do with the strong vibrations i felt while pg with her.

My DD did this sort of thing when she was head down and against my cervix. I think maybe she was rooting around for her fingers like a wild child.

So totally normal! This happened w/all 3 of my kids between 24 and 32 wks some time... I think it had to do with changing positions from posterior and breech to head down. I'm 27.5 wks and this LO has did it for a week here and there and now she's way in a different position. It totally feels like the baby is seizuring or something. I wouldn't stress about it!

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" too...it 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

my bestfriend was for sure her baby was having Seizures inside of her, when she told the doctor this the doctor said it was normal. (he wasn't actually have Seizures) and he's a normal 4 month old today.
