I have read about this kind of fetal movement and now I'm paranoid?

have you read that you are supposed to be aware of any jerky, panicky, or frantic fetal movement? do you know anyone or have you experienced this? it scares me. and now i am always wondering if the movement i feel is jerky.
I read it in that book "what to expect when expecting" and also I think on some pamphlet from the dr. office.

    Okay, what did you read, and where?
    I've been told that the spasm like movements are normal. It's part of the immature nervous system.

    EDIT:
    hopefully this will help you relax a bit

    I wouldn't worry about them. I have them too; and they WERE frightening at first. Try to relax and enjoy your pregnancy.
