    I just wanted to share what it feels like for those of u who havnt felt it before when the baby moves and u feel it.

    Its like flutters and i believe everyone describes it differently but for me, if u can imagine this then its the best way i can describe.

    Ok, u know the hairs on your arm?, well u know if u brush past the hairs on your arm but so u dont touch your skin?, and it gives u a tickling feeling but soft and gentle. well just try it on your arm now, this is what it feels like coming from my belly when babba moves, it is amazing.

    anyone else felt babba and want to describe what its like for you????

    i love your description :) i agree though, it probably is a bit early for people in 1st trimester to relate, unless they already had a baby :) i cant wait to feel buttondumpling squirming around. i was listening to it on my doppler a few minutes ago and wondered what it might be doing in there while its little heart was beating away :)

    i felt something like a bubble popping and it could easily have been mistaken for wind except it just wasn't like that and i didn't trump after :)
    Whilst on my doppler yesterday i felt exactly as you've said like a tiny flutter exactly where i had found the heartbeat but after i had taken the doppler off....Think its still so tiny so not feelijg them that often but i cannot wait to get the first proper one!

    I'd describe the first flutters as like a little butterfly flapping in your tummy, but just right under the skin so the wing would be tickling your belly under the skin.

    The first actual "kicks" are like a teeny tiny person (which it is) lol, poking you with a teeny tiny finger like 'oi! it's me' but from the inside lol.

    Thats how i remember it anyway, mind you it was about 8 yrs ago now! :shrug:

    Maybe i'll feel it this time and be embarassed that i've spouted a right load of garbage!! :blush:

    First time around I think I felt it around the 20 week mark, you'll know what it is when you feel it, I like the description of a butterfly's wings flapping! Later on be prepared for some strong kicks and punches, elbows and bum sticking out!

    With my first I thought it felt like gas -- in fact, that's what I thought it was at first, until it didn't go away! I have yet to feel it this time, but I can't wait until I do.
