I have been feeling the baby move since I was about 16 weeks, but I still can't feel it on the outside and neither can dh. I am on the thin side (not super skinny), so I am suprised that dh can't feel this yet since I'm 22 weeks. What are other people's experiences with this??

Maybe your baby is facing your back, and doesn't kick toward the outside.

well i could feel my baby move since i was 17 weeks.. and its just now.. im 22 weeks that my dh can actually feel it.. and he can only feel it certain times.. your baby probly just needs to get a little biger to feel it.. just keep trying and soon it will be felt!!

I was 16 1/2 weeks. And with my two previous pregnancies I actually started seeing my belly move at about 24 weeks but everyone is different.

I'm sorry not 24 weeks it was 26

Well, too funny. We were just watching TV and I had dh put his hand on my belly and just wait and he finally felt her move!! It was so cool. So, I guess it is 22 weeks for me!! Thanks for all the responses!!! That made my day :)

We can feel the heartbeat (separate from mine) from the outside pretty easily now, and my dh said he can feel a little bumping feeling when I'm getting little kicks, if I'm lying really still... that was at 21w. I don't know if I'm guessing right, but it feels like the baby mostly kicks the front of my uterus, rather than towards the back. (I have no idea if I'm imagining this, or if I really can tell the front from the back, but that's what it seems like.)

Same here DB, I was 16 weeks when I first got "flutters", I can feel more prominent movements now, I'm 21w5d, but still not on the outside. Hopefully within a couple weeks others will be able to feel her too. :)

My dh can't feel mine move but I've been feeling her for more than a month now. She is quick about it when she kicks but if i lay on my back at night I can see my belly twitch and move which is kind of creepy but cute at the same time.

I've been really feeling baby move since around 16 weeks. DH started being able to feel her move at around 21 weeks if I was laying flat. It really felt good for me to be able to share it with him, and now every night at bedtime he wants to feel her moving :).

I'm now 23 wks and I feel him on the inside but rarely ever on the outside. It seems like with my other two I was feeling it good by now. I'm getting worried

Hi i am 18 weeks and for just over a week now we have been feeling the baby move on the "outside" if me or my partner puts are hand on my belly it feels like the baby is kicking are hand, very nice feeling, But as long as you can feel the baby move i wouldnt worry, every1 experiances different things at different times. Continue to have a happy healthy pregnancy.

chrissi79 - September 29th, 2006 8:02 AM

I am definitely feeling some prominent kicks now on the inside. She is moving about - but more at night or very early morning before I get up...I finally felt her kick hard enough this morning that it was on the "outside" too. :)

My hubby first felt movement from the outside at 24 weeks and I am not a skinny girl but it wasn't a big kick or anything. Just enough to tell there was something in there. Hope this helps.

sqeekers - September 30th, 2006 8:28 AM

I am 20 weeks and my dh felt the baby kick for the first time a couple of days ago. I have been feeling it move for a few weeks no, and was so excited when he finally felt it. It wasn't strong, just a little tap on daddy's hand.

Aviendha416 - September 30th, 2006 9:00 AM

My hubby could not feel movement until 22/23 weeks. It should happen real soon DB. Keep trying.

KMo311 - October 1st, 2006 7:36 AM

This is my third baby and I felt my first at 19weeks and hubby wasn't long after that. Baby number two was big and kickng me at 14weeks. Ths baby Rolled so much i was getting sea sick but i didn't feel kicks until 19weeks. I asked my ob why is is taking so long and she told be that my placents is lying in front and being a cushion for the kicks. I am 22weeks and can feel a few on my side, hubby hasen't felt them yet it takes alot of waiting. I also think he is facing back too because he kick me inside like crazy on my hip bones.
