Hi sorry i'm not going to be much help really, you really can't describe what it feels like n i know that doesn't help. The only way i could describe it to my hubby was that it was like being poked from the inside but i was 20+ weeks when i first felt movement that i recognized. Sorry i know it's not much help, just know when u know it's movement it'll be the most incredible feeling in the world. Good luck darlin

Hey ladies, i'm 25 weeks and i started to feel my baby move at 16 weeks.....it feels like a gurgly feeling as if you're about to fart!!!! You know that sort of gurgle you get when you're hungry. A bit like bubbles floating inside your tummy. At first it's fleeting and by the time you've noticed it, it's gone again but as the weeks go by it get's stronger. It's a rather lovely feeling but also a bit funny cos at first you don't know if it's cos you need the loo or if it's baby! By the way my movements were quite early cos my baby has long legs so don't worry if it doesn't happen that soon, xxxxxx

cjarchibald - lol that made me laugh, what is it about the word fart (!) I have been having this feeling a lot am only 13 weeks 5 days and do wonder if I am about to burst or if baby is making his/her movements felt, I am a mum of 2 already but seem to have forgotten everything about pregnancy............
