First time movement??

I'm 18 weeks and 1 day and have been feeling little gas bubbles around the area close to my pubic bone (the area where I would feel menstrual cramps) It feels like gas bubbles and small muscle spasms. Could this be Baby Seago moving?? This is my first child so I'm not sure what it should feel like. I have a friend that told me that it feels like a fish swimming inside of you. It doesn't feel like that to me. Could I be mistaken? Could I just be gassy? Help!

It could be the baby. I always described it like popcorn popping in your belly, or butterflies flying around. Is is very, very similar to gas bubbles. I'd say within the next couple weeks it will become more frequent and more distinct and you'll know for sure but it definitely could be what you're feeling.

If you pass gas shortly after you feel it it's more likely gas but if not probably the baby. LOL! Smile
