    Hi everyone!
    I am 16weeks 4 days today. This is my first pregnancy. I read a lot about baby kicking.. However, today when I was half lying down on my recliner chair after breakfast, i felt a fluttering feeling on my stomach (upper abdominal area), almost felt like bubbles moving around, and it was not a good feeling.
    From most of your posts, I read that baby kicks should happen at the lower abdominal area.
    I may be able to feel the "quickening" around this time, but it doesnt seem to happen at the right place???
    Do you have any experience to share? or it is rather just a muscle spasm?
    Thank you.

    At 16 weeks the top of your uterus should still be somewhere around or just below your naval, so any feelings above there probably aren't from baby.
