Hi ladies , just a small fun question.....i just wanted to know when you all started feeling or seeing the baby move on the outside of your tummies ?? Im 23 wks 4 d and ive only just started to really feel baby inside since around 2 weeks ago . But this morning i was lying on the couch with my hand on my tummy at my belly button , and BAM !!! the baby kicked my hand !! I was so shocked ,and i was alone cos dh had just left for work , that i had to think about it and see if i was imagining it !!!!! is this around the time you all started to feel your little ones ?????? thanx girlies xxxxxxxxxxxx

I felt mine right around 22 -23 weeks.  I love it!!!   I swear he knows his daddy's hand because he gives him really strong kicks!

i have an anterior placenta...so i barely feel kicks STILL and i'm 25 weeks...so sad.  Every now and then I feel really hard kicks way on the side of my belly, but every time my fiance puts his hand there - she stops!  poor guys still hasn't felt it!

My first one you could feel on the outside around 18 weeks, which is really early.  My second was was about the same, could be where they were laying though.  MY husband only felt our second baby move a few times, he would always stop when my husbnad would put his hand on my belly.  My boss wanted to feel him too and only got to feel him the last week I was there, stubborn baby. My first one never stopped, everyone got to feel him, it was so fun.  Enjoy!

With this pregnancy, I felt it obviously from the outside at 19 weeks.  It was the night before my u/s.  This is my third, and it's a boy......I feel that boys kick harder.  I felt my first (dd) from the outside much later, like 28 weeks.  I felt my first son around 22 weeks from the outside.

I would say around 24 weeks for me!  And now he doesn't stop kicking! I can see him move alot! It's real fun to put a remote or something on your belly and watch the baby kick it! lol

with my son i started to feel the movement around 19 to 20 weeks. i am 18 weeks pregnant with our second (and dying to find out the sex :) ) and i started to feel the movement around 16 weeks or so. VERY strong movement though. but our dr said that with the 2nd one i would feel movement earlier, and we surely did. but my son cant wait until he can feel the lil one moving in there!!!
