Some feel butterflies some feel pokes, which one you had?

I never with none of my pregnancy have felt butterflies movements, I have always felt pokes, I'm 15 weeks now & i told my friend the baby just poked me, & she said that wasnt my baby, im suppsoed to feel butterfiles. HUMMM, i think a mother knowns when her baby is kicking.

So moms, you had butterflies or small pokes ?

  • My first and third were butterflies at first. (#1 stayed at the butterfly feeling for quite a while, #3 moved on to pokes and jabs within a few days.) My second was straight up kicks from the first movement on. That kid was crazy in utero (and he is that way out, I suppose). I had serious alien belly with him.

  • I had both, more butterflies with the first, more pokes with the second - and that seems to fit their personalities too. LOL

  • i had gas..lots of gas. by the time i figured out what i was feeling was fetal movement, the timer was going off and the edges were turning brown.
    if i were ever pregnant again, i'm sure i'd recognize it sooner. LOL!

  • I personally have never felt "butterflies" this is my first pregnancy, when my babies movement was noticeable it was always like a little jab or poke or just like a tummy rumble but more intense.

  • This is my second pregnancy and 2nd and 3third babies I started feeling the butterflies/ gas feeling but now they are kicking and poking. My husband thinks that after you have been pregnant that it is easier to identify the little things the babies do. Of course he thinks he know all his kids do inside of me .

  • POKES! Butterflys my a**! I am on my third and they all follow suite lets elbow, knee and kick! But they are all boys too. Later on I am sure the flips will be more intense. Like fancyjane I get alien belly!
