18 weeks--rolling feeling in my lower abdomen...could it be baby moving?

I'm 18 weeks and pregnant with my first. Lately, I've been feeling kind of soft rolling motions in my lower abdomen. Could this be the baby moving? Sometimes, I feel like I'm being tickled from the inside as well and I think this may be the baby too, but I haven't felt the gas bubbles popping or vibrating type movements other moms describe as early movement. I am wondering if these rolling/tickling feelings could indeed be the baby moving?

Unless you've got something else rolling around in there than yeah- probably! I first felt like muscle spasms, like an eye twitch around 18 weeks. Since then it;s gotten a little stronger...I can't really describe it. But every once in a while I get a stronger sensation that lasts a little an exagerated spasm and I assume that is the baby rolling. So I would assume you might be feeling the larger movements of the baby. Maybe the baby's limbs are too small yet to feel the smaller movements.
