When can my husband feel the baby move?
Hello All. I started feeling the little bun in the oven moving at around 17 weeks (I just turned 19 weeks today), and it is getting stronger and stronger. Just wondering if anyone knew when someone (namely my husband), might be able to feel this movement from the outside of my belly. Thanks!

I think around 18 weeks is when she started kicking a little more often and harder so DH could feel it. For the longest time my baby would stop moving when anyone would touch my tummy, so sometimes its up to the baby too.

My baby dont like my hubby trying to feel him move....he starts kicking really hard at him.  And its worse when I lay down at night beside my hubby.  But he started really feeling him around 22 weeks.  Before hubby said it was just like a small flutter when he touched my tummy.

Baby Quinn is very stubborn. I have felt consistent kicks from her since 20 weeks and here I am 22w3d and as soon as DH puts his hand on my belly she stops kicking. The moment he takes his hand away it is play time again for her. :) DH also has no patience after 5 min with no kick he always trys to stop feeling for them.
Now out of every 20 kicks I can probably myself only feel 2-3 by using my hand. They are mighty strong feeling inside but not that powerful to come through the belly all the time yet.

I am 20w6d today.  I've been feeling her kick quite often from the inside...but we have yet to feel her on the outside.  I decided that we're going ot stop sitting around with hands on my belly for a weeks or so and see if she gets a little stronger!  lol.

That is funny. Same thing happens when my dh tries to feel her move. Her kicks and movements have gotten alot stronger in the last couple of weeks. So I can feel her all the time now.

What can I say she is a Momma's girl. :)  That is until she is born and wraps biker Daddy around her little finger.

I think my little gurl will start letting her father feel her move when she gets ready.  She's already like me, she makes everyone wait.
