  • yeah i would have to agree with 24 weeks. I started really feeling my son around 18 weeks and now im 22 and it gets stronger and stronger. My husband has seen the baby kick my belly but he cant feel it just yet. I can if i put my hands on the spot where he kicks but only if i lightly rest my hand on my belly. Other than that alot of kicks and movements. Sometime he kicks so hard you can see my belly go up...dont worry your not that far from 24 weeks. However, remember that everyones body is diffrent and it could be sooner or it could be later. Dont worry so much though. GL hun

  • My OB said about 22 weeks at my 20 week appt. That night, my hubby got a good swift kick! If you're feeling good kicks, keep trying with putting his hand over the kicks. One of these days, he will feel it, and it will be the sweetest thing EVER! =) Don't stress if you're on the late end of "normal," as frustrating as it can be. It WILL happen.
