baby movement

I'm a ftm and yesterday was my 14 week check up and my doctor told me I should start feeling movement soon, I was wondering if anyone could tell me what to expect, or what it might feel like?

@morganeva who are you to say it does or doesn't feel like something?! Every pregnancy is different and last time I checked none of us including you are any kind of expert. For me when I felt the first movements around 20/21 weeks it did feel like I needed to pass gas but soon realized that was my baby. Her movements changed and now obviously feel a lot different, but I certainly don't appreciate you acting like you know it all.

With my first two pregnancies I felt movement between 15-17 weeks. With my oldest I was listening to music in my car and she would start moving. She still loves music and dancing to this day. With my second I didn't feel her until 17 weeks. To me it feels like a bunch of tiny bubbles popping inside my tummy. It's usually like a little burst and they start becoming more frequent.

It can take anything up to til the 22/23rd week to feel movement,some do feel it earlier than that,at first it feels like flutters in your stomach and as the weeks go on the kicks will get stronger
