is this normal? my baby movements have felt fairly normal up to about wk30, but in the last 3 wks there have been a few times where she's had bouts of moving the same part of her like she's kicking/punching/shaking her head to the beat of a drum. It just feels really weird as it's so uniform and repetitive - any ideas anyone? I don't want any extra monitoring that involves a Doppler, poor baby has been scanned so many extra times because of all the risk boxes I only just tick. Thanks in advance xxx
Could it be hiccups? DD had it a lot towards the end, and then had them a lot when she was born too. The midwives said it was a sign of strong lungs, but they tell you a lot of bullshit in my experience so I don't know how true it is.
thank you mumsnet! I've got so much on that I couldn't think thru this logically enough to realise that it's probably hiccups. Mind you, neither did the midwife who kept me in hospital for over and hour after I reported this symptom. And yes, it's definitely important to remember that hiccups don't count as movement. Good old mumsnet xxxxx
