feeling baby move?

what does a baby feel like when it moves? 15 weeks today

i have been having twitching all over my belly. somedays i feel like there is a bubble floating around in there.
i have only started feeling movement and the other day i think the baby kicked me for the first time. the movement was that strong that it stopped me dead in my tracks :)

has that happen to anyone? the first time the baby kicked it stopped you in your tracks, shocked you?
this is all so new to me, so i dont know what to think. is the twitching normal?
also my belly is really round at the bottom but still isnt hard, is that normal?

Your belly won't get hard for a long time but what you're feeling is totally normal the first several weeks you feel movements it will just feel like little pops and flutters and yes the first time you feel that big movement it is a little schocking

Are you meaning you can't feel baby when you touch your belly?? That won't happen for a little while yet..;-) its so exciting to start to feel baby move!!! I'm 15 wks, 2days with my fourth and its just so good to feel the little peanut moving!! ;-) I was able to tell it was baby n not just gas last week @ 14 wks!! And it does feel bubbly and like a butterfly is in your belly...so much fun!!

I'm 13 wks 2 days with #2 and i started feeling the bubbles and swimming about a week and a half ago. U wont actually feel your baby outside ur belly until it gets bigger and feels up more space in there.  Enjoy the bubbles! Just wait until u can feel that precious baby curl up into a ball right under ur belly button. Now that's when it gets freaky but cool!

I felt my first movements at 15 weeks. At 21 weeks I felt and saw her move from the outside.
