how would you describe fetal movement?
fetal movement to me feels like little muscle spasms in one spot on my tummy sometimes in different places. I tested it to see if it was really baby moving by placing a cd on my tummy and every time i felt it the cd would move, even hubby saw it. If i jiggile my tummy a couple of seconds later i feel the baby kicks/muscle spasms again. Would anyone else describe it like this??? 20 weeks pregnant

I guess you could compare it to that when you feel those first kicks. Kinda like a little muscle twitch only on the inside! I loved that feeling!! I would usually lay down and relax and watch my belly for about an hour every day! Such an amazing thing! :)

Mine felt like bubbles popping, flutters and muscle spasms last week at 17 weeks.. At weeks now, mine actually feel like kicks, bumps, etcc... I still have some of the flutter bubble popping feeling but definitely getting more full on kicks... My husband can feel some of them starting yesterday..

but definitely could be described as a muscle spas,s

You don't ever feel a heartbeat. That's your own pulse you feel. First time mothers will normally feel movement from 16+ weeks, and . Weight and fetal position will also play a role in this. Some thinner women might feel it sooner, others won't. You could be heavier and feel it, you might not. It varies from each one.

I felt my baby move at 13 weeks with my hand. At 18 weeks my fiance felt it with his. It didn't feel like butterflies or flutters to me, but more like really really light cramping or even gas bubbles or even muscle spasms.. It definitely did not tickle me like most people say it does though lol.

I have an anterior placenta which meant I didn't feel movements till 22 weeks and then it only felt like someone running a tiny finger very softly across my skin. Hubby felt first movement at 26 weeks but now at 33 movements are well and clearly visible on the outside. I hated waiting longer than normal to feel the movement but makes it feel even more special now xxx
