Has anybody felt their baby seem like they are shaking inside them. Im 28 weeks and I was lay down in my left side this evening and the baby felt like he had started shaking was a really weird feeling never had it with my other two
I did google it and read about a baby having a cord round their neck and their baby would shake when it got too tight so came in here after reading that for some reassurance. I don't think it was hiccups it was constant for about a minute just shaking. My son had hiccups all the time when I was pregnant with him and still remember that feeling He seems ok anyway in there still moving about it was just a weird sensation that I have never had before so just wanted to know if anyone else had experienced it thank you for your comments makes me feel better
I've had it, started at around 26 weeks and gradually decreased from about 32 weeks onwards. Like you all I had in my head waa cord issues. It didn't help that any midwife I spoke to had never heard of it. I have had a scan since and the cord is not tangled, the most plausible explanation I have been given is that it is caused by the developing nervous system (but I don't think anyone knows what it is really!)
I've had this too. Feels like he's shaking his whole body. If you look at videos of babies in the womb though they do some pretty crazy all body movements when they're kicking punching and wriggling all at once! I've heard the nervous system development theories and cord round the neck but apparently it's incredibly INCREDIBLY rare that the baby can do themselves any harm by wrapping the cord around themselves in the womb. I've also read that if the baby is sucking their thumb and they lose grip they might shake their head vigorously looking for it! Cute. If you're worried I guess speak to your mw but if heartbeat is ok at appointments and baby is moving as normal I would guess it's completely fine
I had this too. Got so scared that baby might be epileptic it having some kind of seizures but she was absolutely fine. She got hiccups all the time too but the shaking feeling felt very different and quite scary tbh. I mentioned it to my co suitably and he said it was very normal and part of the neurological development
Update for you OP as I had my baby on Tuesday! He does the exact same thing in his sleep and startles himself, it's so cute to watch (not so cute when he wakes himself up though) but he is completely fine
Thats good to hear Nousername. He hasn't done it aince I spoke to the midwife and ahe says if it happens again to phone the hospital, which panicked me a bit, but he seems ok still moving about like usual, so hoping it was a random thing he did. I have a scan in a couple of weeks, which will hopefully reassure me about the cord
Zanny I had this when I was expecting dd, and just as Nouser said my dd did it after she was born too. It was like a vibrating feeling inside, and it gave me a start when she did it while sleeping in my arms at a few days old!
