I' m not sure if I have felt the baby move yet or not
So question for those of you that have.....
Where did you feel the first kick? Was it your lower abdomen area?
What did it feel like? Was it kind of a tickling feeling?

Thanks ladies!! I' am anxious to feel my baby girl

My first movements felt like something shifting around. Once in awhile it felt almost like my stomach dropping like when on an elevator. As they got stronger it felt like gas bubbles or muscle twitches. Mostly if I wasn't sitting there waiting for them, I didn't notice them.

I started really noticing movements during week 16. They've gotten progressively stronger and more noticeable. For me, it started out feeling like a bee buzzing in the very lowest part of my tummy. Now it's more like kicks and tumbles. I just started BARELY feeling him move on the outside yesterday.

my first kick experience felt like two twitches but a little different and it was like 1.5-2 inches below my belly button, sort of like someone lightly tapping their finger on my skin from the inside, if you felt the baby kick then soon you will be feeling it more often and there will be no doubt

Started out feeling like gas bubbles and then like muscle twitches. More and more it is def. pokes, punches and kicks. Today he was kicking, punching down, right into my vajajay. That was weirdos feeling. It is mostly just below my navel.

PS - trying eating a sugary snack and then lie still. You probably won't feel baby much while moving around.

I had little flutters for a day or so then at 14 weeks I felt thumps and I feel baby move everyday pretty much from then on. We started feeling baby move on the outside at 17 weeks.
Thank you .:shortcake:. for my beautiful siggy!!!

It wasn't til 17 weeks or so that I thought I felt anything, and even then I wasn't sure. It started out as a fluttery feeling or muscle twitches. Now it feels like definite taps from the inside.

When I first felt him it was like a tap on my lower abdomen about 3 inches below my belly button. He also likes to kick and jab at my bladder.
Also remember where your placenta is located...whether posterior or anterior means when you feel baby so when others felt theirs is nothing to go off of. As some wont feel baby til up to 24-26 weeks. Dont worry you will feel them soon.

For me, this baby's movements feel like thumping or wiggling deep inside. I was not sure for a really long time as to what I was feeling until it got stronger. Now it feels more like kicks and pokes. At first I felt it extremely low in my abdomen.
