  • You could see and feel my sons kicks at 16 weeks. I was very thin my doctor said with thin women you can usually hear the heartbeat sooner and feel and see the kicks sooner. He said women who are more in tune with their bodies tend to feel and see things sooner than moms who are clueless about their bodies.

  • yeah, you can, but it depends on the size of the person and how active the baby is

  • With my first it wasn't until the end of the second trimester before DH could actually feel the movement.

    With this one it was around 16 weeks. :) (on the outside)
