what does it feel like when the baby flips?

I read that sometime after 30 weeks the baby "flips" meaning it goes from being positioned feet first (breech) to head first (vertex). Does anyone know what the "flipping" feels like? Would you feel it or would it feel like regular movement?

Re: what does it feel like when the baby flips?

I distinctly remember when this happened with my first -- it was like she was REALLY active for a few minutes... I remember thinking "WHOA! What are you doing in there???" Then, a few days later I had an u/s and the doc said she'd flipped, so I knew that it had been that hyper-activity period earlier.

Re: what does it feel like when the baby flips?

I'm not certain because i'm only 26 weeks but I think I have felt my baby doing flips...I don't think she's made her final flip but I think I can feel her flipping around. I would imagine it feels similar. Sometimes I can feel what feels like a butt or a head or something and it goes from being near my belly button to way down low...or it will go from side to side. It definitely feels different than a kick from a leg or a punch.

when my baby flipped, it felt like my belly button was going to pop right out and I had to stop for a minute b/c I didn't know what the heck it was doing!
But, with ds...I didn't feel anything at all!
