Hello ladies,

I am from the PAL board but on Monday and Tuesday evening of this week I had the strangest thing happen. As I was laying in bed I felt the strangest movements in my belly.

I guess I should say that I am pg for the 5th time after a m/c in October....expecting my 4th child. My first three pgs were complication free...well except for placental abruption with the first and fairly large babies!!! All were born via c/s.

So with that said I feel fairly confident saying I know what the regular kicks, punches, rolls AND HICCUPS feel like. The movements I felt were NOTHING like anything I have felt before. The only way I can describe it was like this baby was having a seizure inside of me!!??

Does this sound crazy....could it have been something else? I just don't know what else it can be and it has me kind of worried. I do go to my OB on the 18th and plan to mention it....but I have been doing some checking and I am worried my doc will play it off as nothing.

If it was indeed a seizure is there anything that can be done NOW to prevent something worse from happening?

I didn't know where else to turn and thought maybe some of you may have some knowledge or are going through something similar. Thanks for taking the time to look this over! I wish each of you the healthiest pg possible and a wonderfully happy baby!

If it was indeed a seizure, I don't think anything can be done until after the baby is born. I wouldn't wait until the 18th to tell the Dr. Call them and let them know what is happening. Maybe they can see you sooner. You may even want to try and see a perinatologist (maternal fetal medicine Dr.) It may be nothing at all but it's better to be safe than sorry. Listen to your instincts and insist on being seen if that is what you feel should be done.
