  • lol! maybe that's a way to tell! if you feel a bubble...just wait a second--and if you don't fart you know it was baby! lol

    to me it felt like a butterfly or popcorn popping..if that helps at all, lol

  • 16wks when I recognized it.
    It's easy to confuse first movements with gas pains and bubbles. But it could be up to 22wks, so don't worry! You'll feel baby soon.
    I just knew for some reason---hard to explain. It was kinda like when I knew before I ever took a test that I was pregnant---I just knew.
