  • you might be feeling kicks and not realizing it. Im 25 weeks right now and i didnt notice kicks until 21 weeks then i realized that i had been feeling them for a while but they just warnt that strong.

  • I'm 17 weeks, and I feel something similar. Everyone keeps saying it feels like "butterflies" but that's not the case with me. I can tell it's my baby, and it's the best feeling in the world. Everyone will describe the baby kicking differently, especially in the beginning of your second trimester. I've heard of some women not feeling anything until the third trimester!! Remember, you're little peanut is doing more than just kicking too! It's turning and moving it's arms, and really working those motor skills!
