Is this the baby moving or something else?
hi doc

i sometimes feel like there is something bouncing off my pelvis/bladder, i am 20 weeks at the moment, i know that the baby is supposed to feel like bubbles?, but this does not feel so much like a bubble, and it is low down, it only lasts for a few seconds but i was wondering if this is the baby, i havent felt any movement for the last day or so, but i also am experiencing a bit of gas, very embarrasing, i dont know if it is beacause i drank three glasses of cranberry juice?
anyway where are you actually supposed to feel the movement, is it supposed to be so low down?

If the baby's feet are low down, you will feel the kicking there. It will become clearer as you get further along.
