What does baby moving feel like?!


hi everyone!,

I'm 16 weeks with my first and was just wondering what it feels like when your baby moves? I've had quite a lot of tummy rumbling over the last week or so but am not sure if it is the baby moving or just gas! I've heard different things about when you usually first start to feel movement and whereabouts, could those of you who have felt your babies move fill me in?!

Thanks xx

hi hun congrtaulations on your pregnancy. Every movement feels different really. i started feeling proper movements and kicks around 18-19 weeks, they get stronger each day. i felt the first movements quite low below since the baby wasnt that high up then. they were just like his little knee pushing against my uterus, you can just picture the baby's position anyway when he/she moves. but for the last 8-9 weeks his kicks are really low (he is breech) and you can almost grab his foot anyway. punches are just above my belly button and and again, you feel the little hands, they are rounder and quicker. i like the shoulder ones as well kinda like shrugging like when he turns sideways under your hand.

i dont know if this is helpful..

best of luck with your pregnancy xxxxx

For me, I felt a very faint fluttering around the same stage as you but then I didn't really feel much until basically the last week. Now what I'm feeling is like kicks or pushes - it's a very distinct feeling that I can't mistake for gas! I think the key to knowing for sure if it's your baby that you're feeling or not, is where are you feeling the rumblings? You're likely to feel your baby down low at this stage, ie well below your bellow button.

When I first felt LO move it was like someone blowing through a straw into a glass of water. It felt like the bubbles rising. Since then it's become more like actual kicks and wriggles.

I know what you mean, I was analysing EVERYTHING I felt!! It won't be long til you get the unmistakeable movements though, that will put a smile on your face for sure

I have definatley started to feel baby moving in the past week or so and I can only describe it as like someone flicking me from inside if that makes sense (doesn't actually but its hard to explain!)
I thought I felt it move prior to that but thought it was wind

When I first started feeling movement it felt like .. a fish was moving around creating pressure. I still get that feeling, just stronger, but now I get little "pops" or how I describe it is, someone is giving me little finger flicks from the inside. It's all quite low down .. about 1 inch below my belly button and between my hip bones. It actually has been getting stronger this week (I guess as the lil pickle grows)

Its very peculiar, but awesome

How far gone are you? I'm 19 weeks tomorrow and heard babys hb on the doppler right by my bellybutton.
I felt the start of movement a few weeks ago. It felt like holding a butterfly in your hands. . .but obv in your tummy. X
