When you first started to feel your baby kick was it like a twitching sensation?

I am 16 weeks pregnant tomorrow and was just wondering if when you felt your baby move or kick at first if it was like a twitching feeling. I have felt this a lot today and even saw my belly kind of jump. I felt a little bit of twitching yesterday. I am experiencing a lot today.

  • Yes, that is your baby kicking. A GREAT feeling, like little toes twirling around.

  • Yes. I felt bubbles before and butterfly like sensations. Now its more twitching than ever. My baby must be very active.
