Sneaking in from second Tri and re-posting this here. I've been told some of you have had this??
I am only 17weeks and out of no where, my tummy will get the shakes on the inside, as if baby is having a seizure in there??!
It doesn't hurt, just feels like someone has turn on a vibrator inside my belly. It lasts for what feels like 30secs (but probably less) and I just feel a bit weird/ill/queasy while it is happening.
When it happened again yesterday, I touched my belly and yup, on my hand it felt like it had the shakes in there. From my google searches, I haven't come up with an answer yet and it seems more common for people who are 30 weeks or more.
Have you had this and has anyone confirmed what it is or what causes it???
It definitely isn't braxton hicks, nor baby hiccuping and it doesn't feel like baby shaking himself (I am yet to properly feel baby move!!).
Oh yeah, I have this too, probably since about 28 weeks! I describe like a fish shaking fast or something it's really weird! My friend said her daughter used to do it when she was pregnant with her and now does it all the time too!
I've had that since the end of my 26th week, and ever since.
I was starting to get ideas just like you Miss Tanya! Could my baby be having seizures? Nothing about that online when I ran my brief search. Searched for baby movements at this time of the pregnancy, and I understood that due to changes in that, they may just turn around and so on. Nothing explained the shaky type though; but I tried to calm myself as the baby continues with some hard-ball kicking and other reactions to things (e.g. light).
Thank you for the clarifications, gave me some peace of mind.
Thanks for this thread you have put my mind at ease. Baby/uterus seems to be doing this more often, sometimes 3-4 times a day since 30 weeks! I was starting to worry that baby was seizing/fitting and was on my list of things to ask doc at next appoitment but now I feel better.
Its the strangest feeling kinna like someone is wobbling a waterbaloon in your tummy really quickly!!! I was in the shower when it happened the other morning and it kinna freaked me out cos my belly looked like a water bed jiggling about but at super speed!!
