I'm nearly 32 weeks and keep getting (maybe once/twice a day) a weird pulsing/beating sensation in my tummy. Its not my heartbeat(!) and I cant feel it from the outside just inside my tummy....

Im the same stage and for me I feel it when h/she has hiccups because its regular little pulses that I feel inside (and if you look closely you can see a bit of movement from the outside).

Its the regularity of it thats the giveaway!
