1 Bump

1st kick...

When the baby 1st starts to kick what does it feel like? Being that this is my 1st pregnancy and I am 18 weeks and not showing at all, I am not sure what they are suppose to feel like. I felt a light thump on my right side when I was letting my hand rest on my belly.

  • It feels amazing!! I kind of felt like bubbles at first to me. And then like thumps. I used to lay on my side and set the remote on my belly and watch it move =)

  • feels like butterflies in your tummy at first, as you get farther along, you can actually see you belly move when the baby kicks. its amazing :)

  • lol it felt like gas...
    i was lying on my belly, and about four months. i was reading, and suddenly it dawned on me that the little bubbles/gas feelings i was having were my baby, kickin around in there. when you recognize it, it's an amazing feeling. and then you notice when the baby is awake or asleep, things like that. it's the best thing about being pregnant; i miss it so much!
    congrats, mama!
