Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I use to have normal muscle twitches but maybe once in a while. Now i feel them one after another and sometimes butterflies, is that my little baby?

It could be. How far along are you? The earliest I felt a baby move was 16 weeks. 18-22 weeks is about the average time women begin to feel their babies.
I am going to be 18 weeks this tuesday :)
Then you could definitely be feeling your baby, especially if you feel it with regularity. If you feel multiple flutters or slight bumps, it's probably your baby having hiccups. (My first had hiccups all the time and that's how I began feeling her movements.)
