Pappy8:  Yes the first time I ever felt my daughter was around 18-19 weeks and it felt like gas, and I didn’t know that was her until after I felt the same thing when I was at my 20 week ultrasound.  As she got larger, I definitely could tell it was her.

I first started feeling/noticing movement halfway through week 18. They didn’t feel like bubbles or flutters though, they definitely felt like little thumps. I’m on my feet all day at work, I’d notice the little thumps pretty regularly on the drive home. (When I’m up and moving it rocks the baby to sleep, so when I’d sit down to drive home, he’d wake up and start kicking.) Another way I found somewhat surefire was to drink some orange juice in the evening, and then sit back and focus on my belly. Babies like the sugar rush!

That’s baby! I first felt my DD around 14w, like a little butterfly in my tummy.

Pappy8:  I was about 16 weeks as well when I felt mine the first time 🙂 it felt like little muscle spasms in my uterus though and it would last only a second or two, unless she kicked again in the same spot! Im now 20 weeks and it still feels the same, like muscle spasms but stronger and more often. DH can now feel her movement from the outside as well 🙂

That was probably your baby.  I never felt bubbles or flutters, I just felt some kicks at 18 weeks.  It was pretty clear that was the baby.

The OJ thing totally works, too.  I drank some before my 20w ultrasound and baby was going crazy in there. At my 16w ultrasound she was pretty much sleeping the whole time lol.

Feels like a butterfly or little bubbles, so that was definitely baby. I was kind of mean and shined a flashlight on my belly to get my son to move. Sometimes orange juice would work.

Yup mine started 2 weekends ago and I thought the inside of my sweatpants was tickling my stomach… but I moved them down and sure enough it came back…doesnt last long but its like a soft feather is tickling me in there or maybe like an air bubble is rising. I’ve had it in a couple different spots but as soon as I put my hand he or she moves away lol.

Mine felt like bubbles popping, I was about 16 weeks. At 17 weeks I had a REAL kick! I did lose a lot of weight in the first trimester though, so I think I felt him quite early compared to some first time mums.
