    Um, I don't know if babies actually breathe inside us as their lungs are filled with fluid!! They're capable of it from a certain point but there is no air in there as it's a sealed bubble!!!! They get their oxygen through the cord from us!!!

    They practice breathing though by "inhaling" and "exhaling" amniotic fluid. I've seen it a few times in my belly - super cute.

    Yeah - I just looked it up as I was thinking about it lol :haha: It's only right at the end they practice it as apparently it isn't that long before birth that this happens but sounds pretty cool!!

    I feel like I feel this as well. Its faster than hiccups shes had but slower than heartbeat. Does that sound right? Am I feeling the same thing?

    That must be what I've been seeing on and off lately, too - baby "practicing" his breathing!

    We saw our baby on Monday practising breathing at our scan. It even said in the report active baby, baby was breathing.

    Yes I think thats it... its like you see your belly moving but you don't feel movements.. if that makes sense. like somethings enlarged and then deflating inside you and it seems to be at least twice as fast as my own breathing

    I see and feel this all the time, too! At first I thought it was baby sucking her thumb but realized that it's probably just her practicing her breathing. So cute, though! :)

    Oh my god! So thats what that is. FOB pointed it out a couple of weeks ago & I told him that babies don't breathe like us before they're born. Proved me wrong :haha:

    N'aww sooo cute!

    I've seen it a couple of nights ago and showed to hubby. It is absolutely amazing. I first saw it a couple of weeks ago on a scan when I went for a routine checkup and this week I asked doctor about it and she said that we will be able to see it when baby lies in the right position. It is so amazing how wonderfully we are made..........
