Movement or something else?! Eli's Mama Bear 17 kids; Mandurah, Australia 254 posts23rd Feb '13
Alright, so I'm 19 weeks and 2 days.... I'm not sure if I'm feeling the baby move or if my belly is just effed up?! But its been "tender" for the past 3 days [no bleeding no cramps] but every now and then I'll feel what feels like your eye twitching.. it's always in a different spot... I hope that makes sense cause I'm not sure how else to explain it ha ha. Is it just baby moving or what?! This will be my first baby....

You should be feeling the baby now but I'm slightly concerned about the tenderness. I know that can sometimes happen (and did to me) but that is much later when the baby is bigger (30 weeks or later) and is kicking you in one spot (like my ribs). And I think I know what you mean about the twitching though normally first time moms say it feels more like gas, butterflies, swimming. Mine always feel like swimming at first.

It does feel like a muscle twitching at first...that's how I described it. Now though it feels like a baby moving inside lol

That could very well be baby moving. In all of my pregnancies this is the first one I've ever felt anything remotely close to "fluttering or swimming". I know that's what they say it feels like in the beginning but for it really hasn't been. It feels like little twitches in the beginning for me too.
