    I felt and saw bub kicking from the outside at 19 weeks. I was a healthy weight when I fell pregnant

    Stephii I have extra chub but can still feel when bubs moves. Its different to gas or other normal digestive type feelings.. much heavier and more consistent in feeling. It always feels the same, just sometimes stronger etc. Bubs tends to be more erratic at night and lasts up to 15seconds.

    I would love to tell you that my partner was also able to feel bubs first kick last night from the outside when I did... but as you would have seen in my previous post he was being a nob and getting all impatient about not being able to feel anything the few others times I tried to involve him.. so he flat out refused to touch my tummy when bubs was going crazy rolling around last night before the actual kick I felt- from the outside.

    Apparently 'he cant feel anything..' so sleep was more important to him. I'm not impressed with his bad attitude and have decided its his loss if he wants to give up before he even really tried.

    I tried to involve him.. of course I feel it more.. its flippin' attached to me?!?! He seems to want bubs to move whenever he is in the mood to be patient enough to actually wait for it to happen instead of being annoyed when he misses it cause he doesn't get to my belly fast enough before it stops.. it doesn't work that way.. she isn't a trained monkey!

    At 23 weeks my husband was able to feel movement from outside (I'm 24 weeks today). I'm sure he would have felt movement earlier if he was more patient, as the twins have been quite active since 20 weeks (I had distinct movement from 17 weeks, as opposed to mostly just flutters from 13 weeks).

    Previously when I felt large movement, I'd put his hand in the right spot and he'd give up waiting fairly quickly, then I'd get another movement after he'd taken his hand away.

    DH was exactly like this when I was pregnant with DD in the end he never felt her move, I was so annoyed with him and decided he wasn't interested in our baby, it was horrible, but as soon as she was out he was holding her and whispering in her ear it was beautiful. Now number 2 is on the way he'll sit patiently with his hand on my belly and felt her move for the first time at 17 weeks, it also didn't help that with DD had the placenta in front so that it was harder to feel movement whereas with this one it's behind so DH felt movement at pretty much the same time I did.

    I'm sorry to hear there are other impatient cranky pants dads. But pleased it wasn't just mine being silly.

    Turns out DF was quite upset to learn that I felt a kick from the outside only minutes after he went to bed. His own fault really! The very next night bubs was going bananas again so I told him to get comfy cause his hands weren't moving til he felt something.

    It didn't take long before bubs gave him a little thump and he was excited as a kid in a candy store to have felt a little kick and rolly pollies. : )

    So.. To answer the question- when did ur partner feel movement- 16 weeks+5days.

    It took quite a bit longer for DH to feel kicks- I felt them at 22 weeks (anterior placenta plus a bit of tummy fat) and him about 25-26 wks. He first 'felt' them when we were on the couch watching TV and he had his head on my tummy (just resting not putting the full weight on it) maybe try that? We found out he could feel kicks that way for a few more weeks before he could actually feel kicks by putting his hand on my tummy.
