  • some say the first movements feel like butterfly wings, bubbles, ect. For me it felt like he was moving, little pokes and small little jabs.

  • I remember wondering the same thing, I didnt even realize she was moving until someone explained it to me. I think it almost feels like when your really hungry and your tummy grumbles and it feels like its kind of moving a little bit, thats what it feels like. Its amazing once you realize thats what your feeling :)

  • Right now...the baby is moving around and it feels like a fish swimming in my tummy...but again I've never had a fish in my tummy so it might not feel like that.It kinda feels like pops...if that makes any sense to you.Baby #5 and I started feeling this one really early.Almost 18wks and the baby does flip flops!!LOL

  • Feels like I have been invaded by an alien body that has the hiccups 24/7 and never stops moving. But in a good way...I am 32 weeks though so no longer is the baby vaguely baby shaped...I have a giant baby in there moving around.

  • Depends how far along you are. At first, it feels like little flutters. Later, it feels like an alien inside you, but it really is wonderful. Except when there's a foot in your rib. =)

  • no one has commented on how gross it feels. i love my kids, but when they were inutero, alot of their movement was gross. i didnt have alot of morning sickness, but when they moved around it disgusted me to the point of nausea. and the hick-ups seemed like they lasted hours.... very annoying.
