    Default Thought it was gas, but...

    So, I've been feeling the baby move for about 2 1/2 weeks now. It tickles mainly, but the other night I could swear she kicked me good in the belly button.

    However, I'm just sitting here thinking I haven't felt those little tickles in awhile, so I whipped out my doppler and everything is fine. Then it hit me, I've been having "gas bubbles" for four days now. I wonder if I've escalated from tiny tickles to something a bit more substantial. I don't usually ever have gas, so having it for four days is stretching it.

    Yep, I bet it's kiddo in there. They get stronger, and as they do, the feeling changes and gets stronger too. If you're really curious, eat something sweet, sit down, and wait. I bet your "gas bubbles" will start up again within a half an hour as the sugar hits baby's blood stream and makes her feel like dancing.

    That's probly baby moving around in there! =) Like Alissa said, if you eat or drink some juice i'm sure baby will start kicking and you'll notice it. That's so exciting!!

    Yes, I always feel mine after eating too and it can feel just like gas at times.

    I swear I replied to this yesterday, but it's not here. Anyway, that's definitely baby! It feels a lot like gas at first. After I had Carson, I remember having some actual gas bubbles and getting a little thrown off becuase it felt like a baby moving.
