    Default When did your Partner feel kicks??!

    Not sure if im asking this in the right place... but as the title says.. when did your partner (or anyone else for that matter) feel the baby move!? i've felt lots of little movements, and a few definate kicks in the last few days- but i can't wait to share it with DP!

    I also felt the move when my baby in my tummy was less than 20 weeks. Although the kicks I felt it after 22 weeks. It's an experience that is yes priceless.

    I could feel kicks from the outside from about 18 weeks but it took another week or so before DF got to feel it because the movements were so infrequent back then and whenever I went to put his hand there, bub stopped moving

    I'm having this same dilemma now stephii. I can feel bubs doing little rolly polly's and gentle pokes but everytime I run over to share with DF it all stops and he can't feel a thing.
    I'm hoping over the next few weeks he will be able to feel something. I hate that he is missing out on these cute little 'hello's' from our poppy seed.

    Around 19-20 weeks I had been feeling something but really wasn't sure if I was just imagining it.
    DP cried when he felt his first kick, so cute!

    With DD1 it was at about 20-22 week when DF and I could feel and physically see her kicking from the outside.
    With DD2 it was at about 18-20 weeks.
    Yes I was/am quite thin both times around.
