Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
My husband has yet to feel our baby move. I feel her all the time and more and more from the outside. I think our timing just hasn't been right yet. He is really anxious to feel her though. So when was your DH able to feel your baby move?
24 weeks or so.
He's only felt her a couple of times total, though, and both of those times I made him sit on the couch with his hand on my belly for at least 30 minutes! It seems like the baby always stops kicking as soon as he tries to feel her!
DH has yet to feel him because right when he puts his hand on my belly LO stops kicking, plus I have anterior placenta.
I can barely feel her on the outside. The few times I've had DH put his hand there, she's stopped moving.
He felt it just last week on the plane to Hawaii (25wks)...our son does NOT like planes apparently.
His face totally lit up with actually being able to feel him move! Everytime before that I tried to get him to feel it, he would stop moving when he put his hand on me...I made my DH feel better by telling him he was just "calming him down with his touch"...he seemed to buy it! LOL!
sare_bear:I just felt it for the first time this morning on the outside. Poor Dh is missing out :(
I almost woke DH up but didnt because I didnt know if they would do it again. And I am glad I didnt because I only felt it once. My DH likes his sleep, LOL.
The first time DH felt our LO was around 16-17 weeks. It was still fairly early back then, and I never expected him to be able to feel it. We were lying in bed, and he was jokingly knocking on my stomach and poking it. All of a sudden, much higher up and stronger than before, I got a kick in response!
It took until this past weekend though for him to feel it again. I was lying on my back for a few minutes, and I put his hand at the place LO seems to be most active. Took a few minutes, but he got to feel it quite a few times.
