    I think I know what you mean, I'm 33+3 weeks along and every now and then it feels like bubs is having a boogy or something lol. Really not very comfortable.

    I just googled it and it came up with many forum entries asking a question like yours in places like babycentre and other parenting websites.

    The general consensus seems to be its fairly normal, possibly to do with the baby's nervous system, the baby shaking a part of its body, the baby steering (you know, like a reeeeally big stretch) or even that the baby is on a nerve causing your uterus to spasm.

    If you're really concerned I'd call your doctor as I've not experienced it. But it seems lots of women have and it wasn't anything bad.

    ...steering was meant to be stretching!

    I've had the same thing! Was thinking about starting a thread but wasn't sure how to word it LOL. But it's as you described, shaking. I remember it happening with two of my older children in their pregnancies so don't think it's anything too much to worry about but still gives you a fright.

    It woke me up a few nights ago with a big 'shudder' type feeling. Then bub gave a couple of small kicks and that was it. Has done it a few more times over the last day or so but nothing that lasts long or is happening with any correlation I can see. Will mention it to my GP next week.

    It's a very different feeling to the hiccups, more a quick once off, than a kinda predictable 'bounce'. If that makes sense?

    Anyway, just wanted to let you know you arn't alone and I've had in previous pregnancies. Best of luck with your bub.

    Default Baby shaking in belly

    I guess it's hard to explain but it's just like the baby is doing a quick wriggle or shiver.... I get the kicks and rolls and stretching but these only last a few seconds...
