I have heard most people describe it as butterflies, flutters, or gas, but I have felt nothing of the sort. I am 22 weeks pregnant and for a good 4 weeks, the only thing that I have felt is what I can only describe as a muscle spasm in my lower abdomen. I feel it sporadically throughout the day. It is typically on my left side, but I have felt it several times in the middle, and on my right side once or twice. I don't know if this is kicking or just my body. My doctor seemed surprised when I told him that I didn't know if I had felt our baby move yet. This is my first baby.
