fussy, arm-waving newborn

my two-week-old daughter seems to spend most of her waking hours breathing fast, waving her arms, grunting, and then every five minutes or so building up to a big cry...there doesn't seem to be much my wife or i can do to calm her except nurse her (which only works every few hours, natch), and rock/bounce her (which only really works for a while, then she needs new stimulation)..any advice?  i'm especially curious about the arm waving and fast breathing, not having been around many newborns in my life, i don't know if this is common or not...

thanks!

my son did this for three months - he had colic and reflux - let me tell you it was really hard to see him go through this and hard on me - i would have gone mad if i wasn't at my mom's during that time.  i would go to the dr and ask him.
