What is this strange feeling??

I'm 19+1 and for the last few (maybe 4?) weeks I've been getting quite a strange feeling other than the usual soft fluttering and kicks you would expect.

Occasionally when I turn or move, I get a jolting sensation in my abdomen - almost like my whole uterus flipped??its hard to describe, but it's a very definite sensation and although it isn't sore it does stop me in my tracks.

I never had this at all with DD - anyone experience similar?

He could be doing somersaults?

Is it a sharp pain ? Almost like your stomach muscles pulling apart?

It's not sore at all, just feels like my uterus has flipped or a muscle has been jolted really suddenly?

Maybe it is somersaults but baby is still small and was even smaller when it started to happen (just every few days) - and the feeing has been the same right from when it started 🤔

I get this too! It feels like a thud when I lean forward or laugh. Takes me by surprise.

I also had it with my son too. No idea what it is but my theory is because our wombs are taking up more room, things have had to squash up a little and intestines are banging around a bit. Nice!
