No - that "bubble" structure of the Universe you are speaking about
(attributed to the not well understood processes during the Big Bang) 
is of much greater dimensions than interstellar spaces in our Galaxy - 
it applies to the distribution of galaxies in the intergalactic space.
The bubbles within the Galaxy are much smaller and were
produced quite recently, during the development of the
structure of the Galaxy. As it was pointed out in another post,
they are attributed mostly to supernova explosions and other
events of this type, very, very tiny and local as compared to Big Bang.
