Have done test and was positive about 2 weeks ago, so only just pregnant with No 3. Been having wierd feelings in my tummy which if I was further along would be baby moving, braxton hicks etc but much smaller. Is this just my imagination? Am I going mad? What the hell is it?????

It's called wind - sorry but the progesterone rises quite often cause a sort of bubbling effect in the large intestine which can feel like movement. Unless you are very unsure of your dates, it's most likely that. I was scared silly with DD with this and went to A&E thinking there was something wrong (first child and had a miscarriage previously so I was a well meaning muppet, but still a muppet) and they explained it was just because you are more prone to this feeling in early pregnancy because of the hormones.

thank christ for that, thought I was going mad. TBH have had more loose movements etc so would make sense.
thanks whomoved, my mind is now at rest grin

LOL - don't worry about it - I was concerned I might be pregnant a few months ago, then I realised I hadn't had sex since DS was born hmm so I couldn't be. But it took me a good 30 seconds to make this rationalisation blush
