When do you feel your baby kick from the outside? I can only feel her kick from the inside. The doctor told me that she is growing really well and that she is a little bigger than expected but nothing to worry about. I am a thick girl but my stomach is hard and tight so why cant I feel her? I am about twenty one weeks or is there still time that I have to wait?

  • I felt him on the outside around 22weeks. Hubby didn't feel him until 3 or 4weeks later though. But dont worry, as soon as you get to about 28weeks, they never stop & the kicks start to get you in really uncomfortable your ribs & bladder!
