Feeling movement at 18 weeks with little bump....or wind?

Hello all,

I don't have much of a defined bump yet with my first at 18+4, but I think I might be able to feel some movements, although they are more like rolls and some pokes than flutters.

Earlier on, I had my hand on my stomach and I thought I might have felt a poke from the outside, is this likely or unlikely? I'm not convinced it's not just wind.... blush

I meant to add, the movement is quite low, a good few inches below my belly button if that make it more/less likely to be baby!!

I felt movement at 18+6 for the first time (and this is my first) first thing I felt was definite kicks/punches. wasn't sure at first but they kept on coming and are now getting more frequent and stronger. so definitely could be baby!!

Yep, I'm 18+6, baby started rolling around couple of weeks ago and kicking this weekend. Did a couple of big ones (for its small size) so dh even felt it - was lovely. Such a nice time, enjoy it :-)

Sounds like baby! I felt (and saw) mine at 18 weeks. So exciting isn't it!

That sounds like baby movement to me. I first felt my LO at 17-18 weeks. Thought I was imagining it. Then the sensations got stronger and more definite. I'm now 33+6 and regularly getting nudges and pokes. It's the best feeling in the whole world. Enjoy it. It only gets better and better. grin
