Hey ladies. Well im 20 weeks prego. And I get like lotsa feeling down there. Feels like farting inside of me lol or something, but I dont get like butterflies or anything, and im scared my baby's not moving! I saw it moving at my ultrasound in week 18 but everyone is talking about movements etc. And they're like way less prego than me :(

Different people feel movement at different times, and 20 weeks is not so far along that the baby will be making footprints in your belly or anything. It's really hard, I think, to actually describe what it feels like to feel the baby moving... I have a hard time trying to get my bf to understand. The "farting" is probably the baby... Especially if it's something you've never felt before.

Lol, np. I was a little confused when I first started feeling my baby move, too. I wasn't really sure if that was what it was or not. I mostly felt him only at night. Now I feel him some throughout the day (especially right after I eat or after I drink something cold) and sometimes when I wake up, he'll be squirming around.

I told my bf it feels like he's just flopping around. It doesnt' hurt; kind of feels good, actually, in that weird, pregnant lady sort of way. There's really even no way to mimic it for someone... Sometimes it feels like they're blowing bubbles and popping them, sometimes it feels like they're just brushing up against the front of your stomach.
