Itchy, Bouncy hedgeog?

Hi guys. Mika has been really itchy lately, I think she's still doing the baby quilling, since she's losing a lot of quills but is growing bigger ones in. I've noticed for a while sometimes I hear her making a "bup bup bup bup" noise, so I set up a light and a camera to try and figure out what she's doing.

Do hedgehogs ever have seizures?! I don't think that's what it is, because she stops every time I've tried to catch her bumping around. Anyway, here's a link to the video.
The bumping is closer to the end of the video. Maybe she has hiccups? Not sure what it is, but if anyone could lend a hand I'd like to know!

I'm with my hedgie right now and she was just doing the bouncy thing a few minutes ago. She is a little over six months and I started noticing her doing that about three months ago. I notice she does it whenever she is getting ready to go to sleep. I too have asked what that is, but no one seems to know. I wouldn't worry too much about it. Doesn't seem to be bothering your little hedgie. I'll let you know if I find anything else out about it.
