b0710:My LO is the exact opposite. I think he is fascinated with my husband! Every time DH talkes to him he sits perfectly still and listens...it's crazy! He is such a wiggly baby, but something about Daddy makes him completely still. We're hoping he still has "the touch" after he's born haha.
Same here. She'll be moving like crazy till my DH comes over to feel, or comes to talk to her. Then she stops. It took forever for him to get to feel her moving b/c of this.
Our baby is super responsive to daddy as well. I feel like the hubs is able to bond a little more knowing that babe is so responsive to his big voice.
That's the general norm for us tho, babe is already the center of attention... when there is a lot of conversation, it's pretty active :)
I actually just saw something about how they respond to daddy's voice more (usually) b/c of the low voice and how it travels through water.
My LO usually moves around like crazy and then freezes when DH talks to or touches my belly. Weird.

I have the same problem! I feel like LO is beating me up so bad that sometimes I'll take DH's hand and put it on my belly just to make the baby stop!
TTC #3 starting November 2013
I read somewhere that it is easier for babies in utero to hear low voices (like dad) rather than higher voices. Not sure if that's true, but I wonder if that's your LO is sometimes more responsive to dad?
We've been playing music for LO...sometimes it seems like she stops to listen, then moves around after the music is done. Except for Beethoven...she seemed to be moving in time to the 7th symphony the whole time (which has lots of low-register drum movements, etc.).
this decaf life:Every time my DH tries to feel her move she stops. I think it's hilarious.
me too! He's always teases that I'm just crazy when I say how much she ismoving. The SECOND i put his hand wherever she was just kicking she STOPS and won't start up again until he gives up. haha.
Ditto. I've started calling him the Baby Whisperer.
YEP! I love it and so does daddy :)
I fell at the mall the other day on the escalator and I didn't feel baby for a couple hours and so I thought we were going to L&D to make sure she was ok well as soon as daddy put his hands on my belly and goes "please start kicking I really don't want to go to L&D tonight" and started rubbing, she started kicking and twisting away. She just needed her daddy.
I still tease him she's a daddy's girl and she's not even here yet!!!
