  • Probably pretty soon, and it feels like basically gas bubbles at first...little flutters.

  • It feels like butterflies in your first you may get a good thump, or get something light....but as the days go on it will get worse.

  • i felt mine at 16 weeks, but i knew what i was looking for...i had read ALL about how it felt, so that way i knew it was the baby! I havent felt much since, but after the first day the baby was moving like crazy for abotu a week!

  • You may feel little flutters now that you think are gas. For the first real kick it will be about 20 plus weeks and it feels like a big gas bubble but you can actually kind of see it at that point. It is a weird feeling but a cool one at once. It feels like a light kick and they get stronger and harder the bigger the baby gets.

  • My first feeling of Connor felt like a butterfly swimming across my belly. When I felt him kick I thought it was cute. I walked around with my hands on my belly and wanted to feel the next kick or roll. Now it was cute till he got bigger and started to stretch. I thought he was going to break my ribs. Those lil hands and feet can do some damage. But he's still the most wonderful thing on 2 feet to me. Love him with all I have.

    Enjoy those first real moments of just you and baby. You will treasure those from now on. I miss that and can't wait to go through it all over again.
