Is Your Baby Twitching When It Moves

I'm 35 weeks pregnant, and I can feel the baby moving around quite a bit, kicking, prodding, etc. However, sometimes the baby also moves quite rapidly, almost like she is having a seizure. (even though I know that is not the case.) Does anyone else feel really rapid movements, almost like a vibration or twitching or shaking? Just curious.

yeah I feel that too! I wonder what the heck she's doing in there!!!

How far along are you? I'm 38 weeks and his movements have become stronger and more decisive. Before this though they were more rapid, seizure like at time.

YES! I know what you are talking about! I will be 36 weeks this Friday and he moves like that a lot!

Yes, I feel that too, not as often as I used to but definitely feel it. I asked my doctor about it and he said this happened because his nervous system is starting to practice and develop.

Yep me too. It doesn't happen a lot, but sometimes it does. It will just be a really quick twitch or a series of twitches.


Chrissy - May 3

Oh yeah, I'll be 36 weeks tomorrow.

I had to laugh at your description - like she's having a seizure, because I've thought that myself!! My little one's movements seem really quick and rapid at times, so I've wondered and thought the same thing!! So you're not alone! :o) My doctor says its normal for them to make all kinds of movements - fast and slow!! :o)

I have also made a topic about this as well and it's funny because i have put down exactly what you've wrote about if she/he having seizures, and was wondering 'what in the world is going on in there!', lol.

I'm not that far along yet, but I'm now going to pay attention when I get there. That's interesting.

I am only 27 weeks, but had an episode of this last night. The baby was going nuts, and my first thoght was, it's having a fit! I did have my glucose test yesterday, so maybe it was a bit hyper after all that sugar!

I am 35 weeks too, and I do feel this allot. For me it happens really low....near my pelvic bone, and I can not figure out what she is doing, or what part of her is doing it??? It makes me laugh b/c it almost feels like she is tapping on my really really fast.

Exactly that is what I've been noticing for about 2 weeks! I am 35 weeks as know sometimes how baby's get that little quivery chin after eating feels like know...but a little bigger movement and longer lasting...I have been kinda worried...but now I see it is common

i feel that too... i wonder if it's from a reverberation from the amniotic fluid or something??? (also 35 weeks)


Tess - May 3

How far along are you? It usually slows down after 35-36 wks...but for me she's still very active during the night.

I get the same thing also! Can't figure out what it is. I'm 32 weeks and have been having this happen every once in a while for quite some time now. Usually I feel distinct movements, but sometimes I feel him shake around like his whole body is vibrating - but only for a few seconds at a time, but maybe a few of those in a row. Very strange! There must be some explanation if we're all feeling this!?

I always a__sumed it was hiccups. Cause they do get them quite often from what hear.
