I know it will happen, but when?!

I've been able to feel the baby (or babies) move for about a week now....this is my second pregnancy, and it's more than likely twins. This is probably the dumbest question in the world, but my brain is absent (and I'm impatient), and I'm sorry, but when will my DH be able to feel the baby too?!

  • I'm curious why you are so certain it is twins? I would think two babies means more movement and so your husband should feel it sooner rehter than later, maybe 20 weeks? Just a guess.

  • We're not certain it's twins, but very suspicious I guess you could say....the doctor is suspicious too, but wasn't able to check and see at my last appointment because they only have 3 machines in the office, and all were being used. (We could've waited, but I just wanted to get home and sleep lol)

  • I don't remember but I do remember that before he can feel it you can put a glass of water on your belly and he will be able to see the ripples in the water as the baby/babies move.

  • DH can only feel the baby move when she wants him to lol. Most times I'm the only one who will actually be able to feel her kick, even though it's visible- little stinker gets still if DH tries to feel it, just like our older DD.

  • I feel the baby/babies move a little when my DH is at work, or just in another room, but when he puts his hands ANYWHERE on me, I feel it/them a lot! lol....
