I am 17 weeks pregnant with my first child and am so anxious to feel the baby! This morning I was laying in bed, and I felt "something" on my left side, down really low. It almost felt like a little twitch, but it kind of came and went. I probably felt it 6 or 7 times, pretty close together. Then it stopped. I rolled over, and a couple minutes later I felt it once or twice in that same spot. Could it have been the baby? Or am I just hoping that's what it was? Could I feel the baby down that low? It was sort of between my hip bone and the top of my pubic hair. What do you think? I just want to feel this baby so badly!!! :)

that's what i'm feeling and in the exact same spot and i'm also 17.5 weeks! i think its definitely the first of the flutters :) - February 19

i'm 17 weeks today, and i havn't felt any flutters yet, but last week it felt like a big kick on my lower left side. i think you are probably feeling the baby. this is about the time they say you start to feel it! good luck!

I am 22 weeks and my baby is still often felt down that low. It was probably flutters for you!

I am at 21 weeks and I am pretty sure you were feeling flutters. Mine always feel like the baby is tickling me softly inside my belly. I haven't felt them that low, but I felt them by 17 weeks. Amazing, isn't it?

Ok... now I felt kicks. These were higher and on the other side, but much stronger. I think they were kicks!!! I told my husband where I was feeling them, and he put his fingers there. A minute later I felt a strong one, and his eyes got big the same second I felt it. He said he felt it! I didn't even think that was possible!!! When he said that, I thought it had to be a gas bubble or something instead, but I felt it 5 or 6 times in that same spot. He only felt the 1. This is so exciting!!! It's really just amazing. I didn't think I'd feel it this soon though! I'm not crazy, am I?

I'm 17.5 weeks and I've felt the "flutter" on my lower left side a few times too! I was wondering if this was the baby so this is exciting to hear that it might be! I can't wait to feel an undeniable kick!!

I felt the first kick in my 17th week, I'm in my 18th now. I think the baby was turning over, and had my hand over the top of my uterus at my belly b___ton. I felt a kick, punch or head b___t but whatever it was it scared the daylights out of me, right where my finger was pressing as if the baby felt my hand there. Maybe giving me a high five, lol.

Aaaww! That is too cool DH got to feel it so soon! I don't think you're crazy at all Jess. I'm 16 weeks and my little one is taking up tumbling in there. :) Of course this is number 3 for me and my uterus knows what to feel for. Isn't it wonderful? Just wait until you see your stomach go from square to round again. That'll freak DH out! ;)
