Are you feeling baby on the outside yet? My boys can't feel her yet, I'm feeling her all the time. Morning, noon or night, doesn't matter she's on the move lol

My youngest is very anxious to feel her move, he's always talking to her. Before saying morning to me, he says it to the baby

Aww, that's so sweet! Hopefully they can feel the new little one soon. I can feel ours moving from the outside, but I have to press my hand pretty firmly to feel him. If I don't press, I can't feel much (if anything).

I have been able to for a little over a week. My oldest has felt her/him move but every time I call the other 2 to hurry and come feel it baby stops kicking right away! I am not even worried about trying to get dh to feel it. He never acts very excited about the babies until they are born.

I've been feeling it on the outside for a week or two now - about the same time that I noticed any movement at all! Pretty crazy.

We have been watching my belly do rolls. We can kind of pick out what body part is what just by watching my belly. It is exciting for our son he giggles then does a rasberry on my belly thinking the baby can feel it, it's terribly cute

Last time DH felt movement on the outside at about 24 weeks. So I'll see if it's similar this time!

I've felt him move from the outside a few times, but no one else has. Most of them are too busy to wait long enough for it to happen or he gets stage fright and stops moving. LOL!

My DH very excitedly felt Little Bitty on the outside just last night! I was feeling them pretty strong on the inside and had a feeling he'd be able to. Low and behold, the baby put on a show for him last night.

I'll be 19 weeks on Monday and my dd got to feel baby kick last weekend. DH hasn't yet but mostly because he's not patient enough.

I'll be 22 weeks on Monday and I have been able to feel movement on the outside for about 4 weeks now. And I have an anterior placenta, so she must be quite an active baby!

I've been able to feel stuff on the outside for a week now... I'm 19 weeks... but I am just about the skinniest person on this earth, so I imagine thats why. When i feel the movement I put my hand there and feel it both inside and out, very neat....

I'm 21 weeks and just yesterday my daughter was able to feel the baby! She was so proud because she's the first. Dh isn't patient enough this early on.

DH felt him kick at 16 weeks - I knew then it was either a boy or triplets (thank good ness it's a boy! LOL). I haven't tried with the kdis yet b/c it's still pretty faint thanks to my placenta being anterior.

I have been feeling and seeing baby move for a couple of weeks now. It is so cool to see your belly jump all of a sudden Dh has felt baby move quite a few times, dd...well she is 19 months and she LOVES to kiss my belly...but honestly, the baby kicks the most when I am lying next to her to put her to bed at night and she doesn't seem to notice. I am just thinking that sibling rivalry has begun already I am just over 22 weeks.

Last week was the first time dh felt her. It was during church and she was kicking pretty strong so I just guided his hand to the area and he could feel it! It was pretty sweet. I felt her on the outside maybe a week or so before then, by kinda pressing in.. she kicked so hard my hand bounced off my tummy! dh thinks its mean when I press my tummy.. funny.
