Mama2Be13:I started feeling obvious movements from the inside around 17 1/2 weeks and my husband felt it a few days later when I was 18 weeks, but I think that is a little earlier than usual. I didn't feel any movements prior to this (no flutters, popping, etc), I went from feeling nothing, to full on kicks/jabs.
I am exactly the same way, 17 1/2 weeks, no flutters just full on jabs =)..I had my DH feel it one time he said he thinks he felt it just a little bit..lol..I guess he could feel it better when I am a little bit more closer to 20+ weeks.
Multiple ectopics, 2 failed IVF's

Thought it was the end of our TTC Journey 6/20/2012
SHOCK BFP 9/28/2012: IT'S A BOY! and everything is normal !!!!!!
Little A born 38w 2d and is a true miracle for this IF Vet!
I was 21 weeks when FI felt LO move for the first time. I have a super active fetus, though.
DS was not nearly as active. EXH never felt him move.
I would say around 22 weeks my husband felt her move on the outside- if he was quick enough or left his hand or had his hand on my belly for a while when she was most active (for us that was/is 9:30-10:30pm). Now at 26 weeks as she gets bigger, he can feel her more and more! It's really exciting, especially my hubby is a man who doesn't emote much, and hearing him giggle when he feels a nudge is soooo priceless.
My husband felt our baby for the first time just this weekend. We had french toast for breakfast and our son was kicking like crazy!
I've been feeling him for awhile but every time I got my husband to put his hand there he couldn't feel anything (bummer) but now he can and he's pretty excited.
I'm 23 weeks and this is my first.
#1 I felt kicks 18-19 weeks, he felt kicks 20-21 weeks (anterior placenta)
#2 I felt kicks 16 weeks, he felt kicks 17 weeks (posterior placenta)
Just last night, DH was able to feel the baby for the first time. It was exciting.
(Just in case you aren't able to see my ticker, I'm 21 weeks).
18 weeks with LO1, FI had his hand in the right spot to soothe my growing pains. It was a one-time fluke as it was almost 2 months before he felt the baby move again.
LO2 is at 18 weeks now, but FI hasn't had any luck so far.
