hi i am 18 weeks into my seconds pregnancy, I felt my baby kick at 16 weeks. ( 2nd , 3rd ... feel baby kick early that first) To start with I felt a small pushing feeling on the lower right side not far from my hip. Last pregnancy I felt bubbles in the same place. I find that I feel the baby move when I curl up on my side in bed or sit with my knees toward my tummy. You will feel it soon

It can be hard to determine if it is your baby or gas at first..lol With my first I was about 20 weeks before I could really feel the baby. I am about 17 weeks with my second and i can feel something going on but it is very light. Befroe long you will think your baby is trying to get out of your tummy.lol

It kind of feels like a big pulse inside you,But everyone has their own opinon.

I am 17 weeks as of yesterday and I think I have been feeling the baby move recently. It was like a little poke with bubbles from the inside about an inch below my navel. I have felt it a few times each day since Thursday. I also have felt the big pulse sensation (tonight actually) that Stephanie described.

I'm 14 weeks with twins and I felt them or at least one of them move.. to me, the best way I can describe it at first is like someone blew a bubble with bubble gum and it popped, and that was what it feels like.. its very light, with is why I compare it to gum and not a balloon (wouldn't that be scary?!) lol, my first u/s was at 11w6d, and sure enough one of the twins looked like it was running a marathon, squirming lots. I know its unusual to feel so soon, but they're twins, so it makes sense. oh and one time I was laying on my belly, and it felt like a tickle that wasn't extremely ticklish, it actually made me laugh, because I just know its them pokin me to make sure I remember they're there. so cute! :)

I started feeling kicks at 21 weeks, kare. They are like tugs and they are sudden and strong.

Hi, I'm 20 weeks and feel light flutters and bubbles etc, but it's not consistant. Am I suppose to feel them everyday at these stage?
