17 weeks

So i'm 17 weeks, and i've been feeling like gas bubbles in my stomach.
my mom told me i was ok its prolly just the baby moving.
but you think i could feel it already i thought you had to be five months?
maybe im just scared bc i lost my first one so anything that feels weird.
i have to know what it is.
thank you for commenting.

  • I'm 16 1/2 weeks and I can feel the baby move every now and then. It does feel like a gas bubble or butterflies in your stomach

  • I'm 17 weeks and 3 days with my first and mine is kicking like crazy, DH can even feel it on the outside now so I would agree its probably the baby. Is it more near your pant line? Mine seems to move most, or I feel it best if I am sitting and have a belt on, I don't think it like the extra pressure and it kicks me for it.
