Did they feel like flutters, jabs, twitches, etc?  How would you describe the feeling?

With my first two babies, the earliest movements I felt were fluttery.  :)

Bubbles popping. I remember asking a co worker why it felt like I was having heart pulpitations in my belly, she said that's the baby lol

little gas bubbles is how I can describe them, but happening enough that I knew they were movements and not gas lol. I remember laying down and unbuttoning my pants and just watching my belly. It was too cool seeing those little movements.

it was very light , i laid on my tummy on the couch and put the tv remote on my belly  and let my husband watch it   slightly  move so he could  get an idea of what was going on.

Felt like little gas bubbles. I couldn't tell at first until they we're very frequent.

I still remember when I first recognized feeling my son move (who is now nearly 13!). For me it was flutters!
