Um... are babies supposed to vibrate?

I swear, this baby vibrates. Tiny quick little movements that feel like little spasms. My first son never did this. He bounced from one side of my abdomen to the other like a trampoline, but not the weird spasms.
I have a doctor appointment on Tuesday, and I will ask him then, I just wonder if others have had this happen.

  • yeah could be hiccups but you are supposed to call doc if movements feel frantic or panicked. If your concerned I would really call your doc. Its probably nothing but ALWAYS better safe than sorry

  • My first son had hiccups a lot, so I know what they feel like. This little guy has them occasionally too. It's different.
