  • It was a lot later than normal for me, I was probably 26-28 weeks. I'm 36 weeks now and he's sick of being told to "watch and feel" my belly LOL!

  • im 18wks and when im laying down everyone once in a while the baby kicks hard enough to feel from the outside he has felt her once i think she doesnt like him lol cuz she will be moving around lots and then he puts his hand on my belly and then no movment lol. i think it depends on how skinny of a person you are and how big baby is. usually around 20 to 24wks though.

  • I think it was around 20 weeks...and lol Mommy2B04, my baby did the same thing when my husband put his hands on there! I like how the instructor of our birthing class put it, though: baby is already comfortable with Daddy, so s/he is soothed by his hands! :)

  • Maybe the end of my fifth month or six month. It took a while for him to feel the baby's movement. Even tough I felt flutters at 4mths.

  • Ha my son wouldn't move at all for his daddy...he'd be kickin kickin kickin & of course I would get DH attention & he'd stop. I think it's the funniest thing...he'll be in here in a week & he still does the same thing my answer is my DH didn't see it or feel it until I was in my 7th month
