    Default What does yours feel like?

    Over the past 2 weeks, I've been feeling... something in the baby area. But everyone describes it as flutters, or bubbles or butterfly wings, etc. I'm not feeling that. I'm feeling ... I don't even know how to explain it. It doesn't "hurt" but its not a flutter. It's almost like an itty bitty pinch on the inside. I googled it - and everyone says it's not baby, it's round ligament pain. BUT, I have round ligament pain and can pinpoint what that feels like and this isn't it. The feeling is very quick and RIGHT around where the baby is.

    What do your movements feel like?

    Also - twice I have felt like..almost like something bouncing off of my fat roll - but on the inside. I could believe those are baby - they are definitely easier on the insides than what I explained earlier.

    I'm getting a lot of different sensations in there these days. Some of them feel like flutters, some feel kind of bubbly, some feel like pokes, and some feel like "thud" inside. I don't know how else to explain it - it just feels like the way the word thud sounds. LOL

    I think it can feel different, depending on the position and size of the baby (the larger the baby, the better you'll feel it) and also on your body. The thing like something bouncing off the inside of you definitely sounds like the baby. The pinch probably is too, although that is harder to say.

    Just in the last week or so i've been feeling the flutters and bubbles sensation, but just a couple times a day. Nothing weird yet.

    I have all sorts of weird sensations there too. Some worry me, some I think may be flutters. I get a wide range round ligament pains. When I sneeze its like this string of pain from my nether regions to my abdomen and that one sticks around for awhile. Other times I get waves of a pinching pain which I think is also round ligament pain. It lasts a second then goes away and comes back a few minutes later.

    The flutters to me feel very similar to gas bubbles. Perhaps the little pinches are just your muscles stretching out.

    For me right now, the baby feels like little pokes inside of me, I guess some could be considered flutters.

    I promise you THIS is baby! Tap the pad of your index finger VERY gently over your TUMMY (so yes, higher up.. but soft like you're taping the mouse pad on a laptop) now image that from the INSIDE and lower. That's baby. I know at 18 weeks, you're feeling baby!!!

    The pinch is most likely just your body stretching out... while will continue for another 22 weeks

    You're SOOO feeling baby!! I know it!
