How far along where you when the baby's movement could be felt on the outside? My SO can't wait to feel the baby moving. I'm 17w2d.

About 28 weeks, but I had an anterior placenta.

This baby stops moving every time I have someone try to feel. When they stop trying, baby goes back at it. .. I'm in my 30th week and no one has felt her yet.

22 weeks. This is my first :) I'm 24 weeks now and I can literally watch my stomach move when he's super active.

Around 21 weeks or so for my husband. My son finally felt him last week, and my daughter this week. I'm 23 weeks and 3 days.

Lol, that was what mine was doing for his sister. Every time he'd starting moving, I'd call her and he'd stop. She finally felt him yesterday though, which made her happy.

Quoting KME3: This baby stops moving every time I have someone try to feel. When they stop trying, baby goes back at it. .. I'm in my 30th week and no one has felt her yet.

I could feel the baby around 17 weeks, but I think I was about 22 weeks before DH could feel her.  I also have anterior placenta though, so your SO might be able to feel the baby a little sooner than that.

I was 18 weeks when DH felt this baby for the first time :) I'm just now 20 and I'm laying here watching my belly roll and jump! This is my third.

 i think i was about 21w when my hubby felt our first.  he was a big boy and quite the mover and shaker.  i have an anterior placenta with this one (3rd baby) and it was more like 23/24w
