Butterflies in Your Stomach

To have (get) butterflies in your stomach means to feel very nervous about doing something. For example, before taking a job interview you might feel nervous and say, "I have butterflies in my stomach." A student who always feels nervous about giving an oral presentation to his classmates gets butterflies in his stomach.
