When do you feel the baby from the outside??

I'm 16 weeks and 1 day today. Today I am almost for sure I'm feeling the baby!! Three times now! ;) It feels like something kid of round poking me from the inside. It'll happen a few times, for about a minute or so, and then stop. It's definately below my belly button, but a little higher up than I thought it would be. But the funny thing is that I can put my hand on my belly and feel it.
I'm thinner, I weigh maybe 113 now, but really, can I feel it outside already??

  • I just started feeling it from the outside last weekend (23 weeks). Been feeling flutters since 16/17 weeks, kicks since about 20/21 weeks. Husband just misses it everytime.

  • Yes, esp if you are really thin (and you are) you can feel it outside. You may even be able to see it if you lay flat.
