i know this is a paranoid 1st time mama thing to ask- but it's not possible for a baby to have a seizure in utero, right?! this is where my crazy head goes when it happens. I just want to make sure she's not under distress in there.
Sometimes my baby does this rapid sustained jerky movement thing, and I totally agree that it feels like a seizure! So weird! But I think in my case it's just that she's getting into a more comfortable position, and she's so cramped that she has to do her movements in short inching bursts. Do you think that could be what you're feeling?
Funny, but since I posted this about the breathing/swallowing, I haven't felt it again. DD1 did it all the time, so I figured I was in for another baby with an oral fixation, but maybe not.
