 Okay, I know this sounds weird, but for the past few weeks, I will notice sometimes, if I'm sitting down and just watching my belly that it looks like a little spot is moving up and down like breathing. It's not hiccups, and its NOT me. anyone else have this?

There is no air in his lungs, so the baby isn't breathing...moving, sure!

They breath in amnio fluid but you wouldn't see it. Could be a spasm .... Or baby just moving.

Okay so I just called my doc, and she said It's possible that I can see her practicing breathing the amniotic fluid. She said it's quite common. Phew! :)

Yup she's practicing. My son did the same thing an it was so bizarre. My midwife said the same thing
