    My DP didn't feel bub kick till I was about 30 weeks. It takes a while for them to build up the strength for the kicks to be felt from the outside

    Shouldn't be too long before you can, I had the same impatience as I felt bub move from 17 weeks but took til around 23 weeks for hubby to feel from the outside and even then it was very slight. 26 weeks came and he started to feel much more.

    You'll be able to very soon Then you'll feel them on the outside more and more. At nearly 40wks i can see big feet buldging out and DP loves to feel the little lumps. Its very special for the partner and makes it very real

    Thanks everyone for your replies. Hubby felt 1 slight movement over the weekend which was nice. Hopefully in the next few weeks this will increase.
