  • Yeah, there isn't too big of a gap between when you can feel it versus other people being able to feel it. I think I started being able to SEE mine move under my shirt at about 23 weeks, I could feel it from the outside around 20-21 weeks.

  • I'm 18wks too and I can feel it now and my poor husband keeps asking when he can feel it. I hope they are right and they will be able to by 23 wks...that will be nice. I think he is jealous I can feel it and he can't, haha.
