Did I Feel The Baby Or What Was It

Hi, I am almost 18 weeks. Last night, I was in bed, on my right side, when I felt a new sensation in my lower abdomen. It was like something was pushing out lightly. I put my hand on the spot and there was a definite hard bulge! It has to be the baby right? The bulge went away in a couple of minutes. I am confused because usually the first movements are described as "flutters"- this was a little different. than that. What do you think- was it my baby?!

Sounds like your baby moving or stretching around. You may have missed the first flutters - with a first baby, it can be confusing and hard to recognise sometimes. This is my fourth baby, at 16 weeks, and for the last week I have been trying to figure out wether I've been feeling gas or the baby move gently. To me, it sounds like the baby, definately. It's great, isn't it?!

falafal0, It is great! I guess I must have missed the fluttering. I have had a lot of gas!!! : ) Now I am just waiting to see what happens next. I hope your flutters become perfectly clear for you soon!

It was most likely your baby. I remember that happening all the time with my first. Sometimes the baby will shift a certain way and have an arm or leg sticking out making a bulge. If it bothers you.. you could very gently move or nudge the spot : )

This is my third and I am 16 weeks. I was getting worried because I don't really fell much going on in there. I don't remember too well, as it's been almost 8 years since the last one, but I think I felt the last one at about 4 months. Dr says they are all different.

I am 13 weeks and on the right side of my c-section scar,right above it I keep getting a big hard bulge also.I thought maybe it was a cyst or fibroid or something but it comes and goes.Now that I read this thread I am also wondering if it is the baby.I have had tons of tightening like contractions and when I get them I get that bulge.I really wish I would know if that is the baby.
