Are Taps And Pops The Same As Flutters

I'm 17 weeks and have been feeling very sight taps and little pops, one at a time. No flutters though. Is this baby movement??? I'm thinking the little pushings and taps aren't gas (?) They're so slight, I just don't know and I'm getting worried!

yeh that will be your baby, some people describe it as fluuters and some describe it as pops etc, im now 18weeks and i started feeling mine at 15weeks and i thoought "no, it cant be" but it was it felt slight so you dont believe its true, eventually i think it will just get stronger and stronger

At my last appt, my doc said the 1st movement might feel like flutters, or like gas bubbles, or like "b___terfly kisses." She demonstrated with her fingers on my belly. I think you're definitely feeling the baby. (I'm just about 17 wks, and felt it for the 1st time a couple of days ago...)

I'm very excited by it. It comes and goes but it's very faint. The problem is that I have a lot of gas and burping (which seems to be my only pregnancy symptom so far), so it gets confusing. Also, I sense a tightening of the uterus sometimes, like very slight contractions. That's the only way I can describe it. Also, it feels like a warm tightening, the kind you get when you're nervous. Is this normal too??

Hey no name, I've been experiencing very very similar symptoms. Lots and lots and lots of gas (thank goodness I have my own office, haha). But I think these new feelings are a lot different from the gas. And I also felt the tightness across my lower belly, but I just a__sumed I was bloated ;-)
