    I'm having this really weird moment. There's alittle bit of buba rythmically going up and down. It looks like it's breathing. Do you think thats it? It's not jerky, kicky, glidy or anything like that. And definitely isn't hiccups. I was about to video it for you, but then it stopped! It has been going for a good 15 minutes.

    More than likely is!

    Out of my three pregnancies, I experienced this with my last one. It's amazing!

    I had this last week too. I was so sure it was baba breathing, it defo wasnt me! I asked my MW about it and she said yes it is. She did say though it may not be babys chest breathing if the umbilical cord is close to the skin it can be that. But either way it is still baby breathing :D

    Amazing isnt it?

    I thought it was, but didn't want to be thinking it was when it doesn't happen! It must be about the 5th time I've seen it now. It seems even more amazing now I know what it is!!!

    Yup. It's practise, it's not for oxygen as that comes in the blood from the placenta.

    I've not been lucky enough to be able to see it yet though. I've only just figured out hiccups so I think baby's chest is somewhere out of the way, too far to see the subtlety of breathing.

    I've heard about this and it sounds amazing!! I haven't seen my bubs do it where my bump moves, but on my last scan the sonographer saw it and showed me on the screen, and that was amazing too!
