All right, I'm only 6 weeks, but when will my dh be able to feel the baby? I know I'll be able to start feeling movement 15-20 weeks, but that's on the inside and I want him to be able to feel too!

My husband felt it at 17 weeks, but I think that's fairly uncommon.

My husband felt her around 17-18 weeks.

It wasn't until about 24 weeks or so for me...

I didn't start feeling the baby until 17 weeks. I heard it takes 3 - 4 weeks after you starting feeling it for him to be able to feel it.

I felt the baby only a week before my husband was able to. This depends on a lot of factors, like placenta position and amount of abdominal fat. Obviously, if your placenta is in the front, it will be a while before either you or your husband will feel much. As for the fat, mine all goes to my hips and thighs! Never had much on my tummy. All the best, ladies!

I felt the baby's flutters around 17 wks, felt him kick hard around 22-23 wks and my dh felt him move this week at 24 wks. This is our first and its very exciting!

I first felt the baby around 19/20 weeks. DH felt him actually just last nite 25weeks. Placenta in right in the front so its harder to detect movement.

I started to feel the baby kick around 19-20 weeks and my dh started to feel them when I was about 21 weeks...you'll know because you'll start to feel them from the outside :)

I started to feel little flutters and all a week or so back. I'm in my 22nd week now. Stef, I have placenta in the front too hence haven't felt the movements until just recently.
