You might be experiencing what is known as "quickening" which is the "fluttering" or "bubbling" feeling some women get early in the second trimester. Quickening is when the baby is moving around in your uterus causing the amniotic fluid to swish around. Essentially, the "fluttering" or "bubbling" feeling is the swishing and swoshing around of the fluid in your uterus as your baby move. Usually, quickening occurs around 16 weeks, but some feel it earlier and others later.
Sooooo... in short, you're technically detecting your baby's movements, but you're not feeling the baby him/herself move.
I'll be 15 weeks tomorrow, still feel nothing. Though i'm expecting to feel the baby only around week 18, which it is said to be the most probable time to start having this experience when it comes to be your 1st pregnancy (my case).
So i'm not worried. As long as i can hear the heartbeat! :)
This is my 3rd pregnancy, so I'm used to what the movements feel like. I can feel my baby moving when I'm laying down on my back.
