they're NOT hiccups, I get them too, they are slower, and feel them mostly in head/bum area

am a bit worried that sometimes the limbs jerk REALLY QUICKLY. In a way I can't picture a newborn moving, is this juddering normal or a sign of something sinister like fitting?

I get this too - it's like a shaking, reminds me a bit of when dogs shake themselves dry after getting wet!

I do recall though that stuff has been posted about this before, and it is normal, although I cannot remember what causes it!

yeah a bit like that, or like a boxer practicing those rolling punches really fast on a punch bag??

good to hear it's not that unusual, didn't have these with no1 and all of his movements inside were mirrored when he was outside IYKWIM

Here is an older thread (of which ghere are many on the subject) which has some theories:

As you will see, it is very common, and mostly reported around late 2nd/early 3rd trimester
