Probably a ligament stretching/twinging if it's over near your hip bone. It's possible I suppose but you don't usually go from feeling nothing to kicks that make you suck in a breath.
I found the early movements a bit like a beat inside me (sort of like when the floor vibrates when you have loud music on), then like little nudges and flutters and then kicks a couple of weeks after that. First movements are generally really low down, below the hairline even and fairly central.
I felt them up in my ribs to start, was sharp pain but he had feet in there. I do get them very low down especially at night literally on my hips. Was first sure it was a kick when heard a very loud firework and he jumped. Now feel him all the time even when I want to sleep. Enjoy it you will start feeling it loads more now.
yes, first kick for me was around my belly button. i thought of it as more a vibration kinda feeling. felt first kick at 20 weeks exactly, now just over 24 and they are def much more stronger. been able to feel from outside for few weeks now. its a great feeling! wont be much longer till you know for sure that its the little person inside you letting him/herself be heard or er felt
i would say so Woodifer! i got those kicks really deep in the pelvis by the hips and groin and i definitely gasped like you too. wind doesn't usually have that effect does it?? my kicks were so low sometimes i thought a limb would come out of my cervix lol!
