Last night I was laying in bed and I could feel some kicks so I put my hand on my belly and the next two I could totally feel! I got DH to put his hand there and he could feel them too! YAY!!! I thought we wouldn't be able to feel them until much later as I'm 19 weeks this week!

Awesome! I have a lot of belly fat so I'm sure I've got another month or more before we can feel them from the outside, but I can't wait <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Oh, fun!! I'm 17 weeks and have finally started feeling regular kicks from the inside lately (I had a few small ones here and there before, but now it's really picked up), but we still can't feel them from the outside. I know DH is eager to get in on the action, so it's good to know it might just be right around the corner!

Good to hear that other ladies had kicks before 20 weeks! I could have sworn I read in one of my books not to expect them until something like 25 weeks!

I think that's decent advice - not to EXPECT them at 26 weeks, but to pleasantly surprised by having them earlier.<br><br>
I haven't felt outside kicks yet, but I can sometimes feel where the baby is, and others can feel it to, when ze is way over on the edge of one side, there's this hard bump, and then if you poke it, it goes away. Sometimes it shows up on the other side of my belly, and then I poke it again and it goes back and forth, poke, poke, poke. I call it Baby Tennis. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> The kid hasn't done it lately, I think ze is annoyed with me poking hir.

Aw, that's so nice!!<br><br>
I only just started to feel very slight movements. I can't wait for them to pick up in frequency and strength. The other morning when I was in bed, I had a few strong pops that I thought I could feel with my hand but DH says he couldn't feel them. Either I was imagining it and was only feeling it inside, or DH was just unlucky with his timing. I know he'll be very happy when he can feel baby kick. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

How cool! Last night I had the same thing happen - baby was very active and I was resting my hand on my belly while I felt the movements. I felt one kick on the outside at the same time I felt it inside! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

How exciting!! I cant wait for the kicks on the outside! I am almost 18 weeks now and with DD I started feeling outside kicks at 18 weeks but I am trying not to keep my hopes up just in case we dont feel any outside kick for a few more weeks. But congrats on all the mamas that get to feel there baby inside and out now BEST feeling ever!!!

Woo-hoo! I just felt (and SAW) outside kicks for the first time Saturday night at 17w1d. I was astonished as I didn't see it with DS til around 24-ish weeks.

Yay!<br><br>
Just last night DH and I were lying in bed talking, when all at once I felt a serious kick from the outside and inside at once. I said, "o, that was different," taking a second to realize what had just happened. DH put his hand in the same place and felt it too! I wasn't expecting it for a long time yet and I'm so excited!!!

baby is so active the moment i lie down in bed at night and my hand instinctively moves to "catch" every one of her kicks/jabs/stretches. (how can you deny them?!) so that's how i fall asleep every night, and it's just lovely. hubby has felt her move on a few occasions when he's leaned over to hug/hold me in bed and had his forearm resting on my tum... a couple weeks back i was able to palpate and make out her body for the first time and it's just so incredible.
