I have been having BH off and on for the better part of today. Tonight the babe has been having several minutes of rhythmic movement almost like hiccups after contrctions (I know they're not hiccups). Not sure how/why the babe would be moving like this. Any thoughts? It's almost like putting your hand on someone's back who is breathing hard. Does that make sense?

momma to 4!

maybe practice breathing the amnio fluid? we saw our little girl practice breathing at a 34 week u/s. It was unmistakeable what she was doing. Depending on position, I can definitely see how you might feel that.

My thought also was practice breathing. Sometimes I put my hand on my belly, and it moves up and down just like someone was breathing! And it's not the same as hiccups, or the freaky twitchy thing my babe does sometimes too.
