So today I was lying on the bed and I could see that the left side of my belly was higher...it was like warped or something. I called over DH and he saw it too...totally warped. So we felt my belly and sure enough...there was the baby! Not like we felt him/her move, but it was totally hard as a rock right there on the left side as opposed to the mushy right side. The difference was dramatic. I'm not sure of a lot of things, but I'm sure of this. Cool, huh? Oh, and coincidentally (well I guess not a coincidence now), each time I have thought I felt flutters/pokes/etc, it has always been on the left side.
Do they usually hang out on one side? I know they can't when they are bigger.

Yay! I've noticed that warped look, mostly when I wake up. It's your whole ute being displaced by your bladder, most likely. I do tend to feel the flutters mostly on one side, but I'll get the warp shape to either side depending on which side I was lying.
So sweet! Yes, I have definitely notice my baby prefers one side of the other this early on - it seems like they like to face the placenta - so if the baby is one side, the placenta is probably on the other. That has been my experience! Looking forward to feeling more movement very soon : )
