How to tell the difference between my first kick or gas?

I am 17 weeks pregnant and I think I just felt my son kick for the first time but I do I know if it wasn't just gas?

  • Your call. Kicks are more fun than gas so go with that.

  • I know. First kicks feel like flutters or bubbles. The difference is those "bubbles" aren't coming out somewhere.
