movement or illusion

Ok! :) i am 22 and this is my first pregnancy. I am 18weeks and two days. I keep feeling a tickle in my right side only. Do you think this is movement from my baby or I'm tripping? I know it takes longer to feel itbc its my first pregnancy. But should i be worried if i don't feel something right now?

It is probably movement. The baby will start off with twitches and bubble like movements because the baby still has kind of soft bones and it's too big yet. In the weeks to come you'll start feeling more and move movement and you'll start to feel the baby kick your hand if you lay still with your hand on your belly. Enjoy this exciting time. In a few weeks your little one will be keeping you up all night kicking you and it might not be quite as cute anymore. Lol

I felt my first early too. It felt like something was tapping lightly inside. :)

No, honey its probably your baby. It doesnt take longer for first time mothers. They say women dont usually feel the babys movements in the first pregnancy becasue they dont necessarily know what they are feeling are supposed to feel. But, when i was pregnant with my first child i was a women that is very aware of my body and knew i was pregnant b4 any test could tell me for sure. But anywho during my 1st i felt my son move and flip @ 8weeks along and with my daughter around 6-8 weeks along. Enjoy these little flutters becuz in a few short months those hard jabs and kicks sometimes hurt. But just be aware of your body and go with the FLOW.
