  • yes my baby does this all the time it plus he kicks so hard that when he is finished jerking around im pretty sore but the movements are normal just uncomfortable

  • this happened to me as well. i was worried that the baby was seizing in utero (my boyfriend has seizures). i asked my OB about and she said not to worry that it was normal

  • Ya the same thing happened to me my doctor said it was normal as well, you probably will notice your baby jerking sometimes even after she born, its normal.
