How far along were you when your family could feel the baby kicks

just turned 22 weeks and i am not feeling strong punches and kicks! I am so anxious. I can't remember how far along i was when i felt my other children. When did you feel strong movements from outside the skin. The ones you can share with your family :)

  • I am 20 weeks along and my hubby has felt the baby kick a few times now. They aren't real strong kicks for him to feel but he's felt them.

  • At about 18 weeks. I've been feeling the baby for a while now I'm 27 weeks, but the baby can be moving like crazy and as soon as someone puts there hand there he gets shy, DH is still waiting to feel him

  • I didn't feel a thing until almost 20 weeks, and hubby couldn't feel anything on the outside until about 24 weeks. I'm at 27 now, and you can see tiny movements in my sides from the kickboxing that is going on 24/7...
