  • how far along are you?

  • It depends on how far along you are. Early pregnancy it felt like gas bubbles and also like someone was running a finger down my belly from the inside out. Later it felt like when you have a muscle jumping. At least that is how it felt to me.

  • I agree with sandra beth... i also found that at the begining of my pregnancy if i were to hold my breath for a min or two and watch my belly i would see it move a bit.

  • I was 41 when I first got pregnant and the first I felt anything was like "butterfly" wings. It didnt feel like gas at all, that was around the thrid month and i didnt feel it too often, then the fifth month I began to feel her kicking.

  • i had the same thoiughts when i was prego with my son..and truth be known there isnt a way to know for sure..but if you can put your hand on your belly and feel it then its the baby!!But just because you cant feel it on the outside doesnt mean its gas!Once you are further along,you will DEFINATELY be able to tell the difference!!
