I felt it for the first time several weeks ago. DH hasn't been able to feel it yet though. At first, I didn't know if it was baby moving, since this is our first and I had no idea what to expect. After explaining it to a few people they all agreed that it sure is.
The best way I can describe it is like little bubbles bursting in your belly or like a little scratching sensation, but from inside. It's different than gas, indigestion or hunger pains. Some have also said that's it's more likely you'll feel it when you're resting, for two reasons:1. when you're moving around your body movements can rock baby to sleep, and 2. you're more likely to notice when you're not consumed doing other things.
Hope this helps
shouldbworkin:Like pop corn popping inside. Lots of little pops in my lower belly.
I was going to say the exact same thing. Just like poping corn. Such a wonderful feeling!
Do you ever get a muscle twitch...like in your eye-lid? It just randomly starts twitching and it kind of tickles, only lasts for a couple minutes. It kind of feels like that.
Popcorn popping is also another good description, just a light internal popping feeling. As the baby grows the feeling gets a lot stronger. In the 3rd trimester you will be minding your own business and then something that feels like a foot or elbow pops out of your side, you can push on it and it disappears...it's trippy.
Another one that's interesting to feel are hiccups.
