    I remember this! I'm positive it was hiccups, though Nothing makes you feel more like an incubator, does it?

    I had this with Leo about a month ago, and I was sure at the time it was him turning, he is head down now, so I am convinced that was what it was, he went nuts, was like he was having an epileptic fit of something, and it took my breath away it was so strong! Didn't feel like the hiccups I got with Jackson all the time which were a lot more subtle, like a bump every 5 seconds or so.

    DOnt you love it when it literally feels like they are spinning in circles - obviously not but when your tummy just goes crazy!! Love to be able to see whats going on in there that we are soooo excited about!! (Probably the copious amounts of chocolate Im eating!!)

    I saw on a programme the other night a little spiel about a baby in the uterus learning to suck its thumb, and when the thumb falls out of its mouth, it gets a little panicky and jerky as it searches for it and tries to put it back in! Amazing huh?

    Could be little movements like these that cause those spasm type movements. I've had them too but at 33 weeks now it seems to have stabilised a bit. Now I get heaps of hiccups (these definitely felt different to the shaky, spasmy movements to me) and big kicks and punches. Ouch!
