  • Movement is a good thing. Some babies move a lot and other not so much. If your really worried you should just call them. If you're ever unsure about something just call your doctor. They wont mind.

  • As long as it doesn't feel wrong to you then I wouldn't be worried. Some babies move more than others that's just the way it is, and it can also vary on where they are at the time as to how much movement you feel. I'm sure it's fine though. BUT if you do feel that something's wrong always ask a doctor, nothing beats mother's intuition.

  • well i dont think there is anything just not sure if it IS the baby or if it turns out that im just having muscle spams =(

    that'd make me sad...but i only feel it on my left side and the babys feet ARE on my left...but..idk..

  • If you think it's the baby then it most probably is, it depends on how 'strong' this feeling in your stomach is, and if it's in the right area then it's unlikely to be muscle spasms. At 19 weeks it's unlikely to be kicking, although babies start kicking generally at 20 weeks or more. So it could be :).
