Dh was trying to coax our little one to kick for him tonight. No luck at the time, but later on I felt a lot of kicking and told him to come try to feel. I wasn't sure if he could, because I wasn't sure if I was feeling it on the oustide or not, it's kind of hard to tell when you feel it on the inside.
Well he waited a minute and then he felt it! Right after baby kicked he told me he felt something and he felt it in the right spot! So exciting!

I think whenever I ask you ladies something it makes my milestones happen. When I asked when I'd feel movement, I started feeling it a few days later. Now recently I posted and asked when Dh would be able to feel it, and it happened again a few days after I asked.

That's so cool, Shannon. I remember it making such a difference in DH's level of "awe" when he got to be involved too. Everytime I would tell him she was kicking, he would run over and want to feel.

That's great that he felt the kick! I bet he was sooo excited

Hopefully asking here will still work when it comes time for the baby to come...just ask and then the baby will arrive a couple days later! lol

I was just thinking to myself when I saw this topic "Oh cool! She just asked about that!" lol.

I'm so glad he got to feel your baby. DH hasn't yet, but that's simply because baby brother stops when he tries. DH has SEEN my belly move, but once he puts a hand on, everything stops. =Ţ

How exciting! I just now think I am feeling movement but nothing real distinct. Hopefully I'll only be trailing a few weeks behind you because I'd love for Travis to finally feel the baby

That is so great, I think it helps to make the pregnancy feel more real to DH's/SO's when they can feel the baby too.

My boys were little buttheads... DH would lay there and watch my belly move and as soon as he would touch my belly they would quit moving...finally they just got too big and couldnt hide the movement anymore

That's awesome Shannon, just wait until he can see and feel him/her move and he can really feel those kicks.. It freaked dh the first time he saw the baby move, he wondered if I had an Alien inside me , and he jumps a little when he feel him kick hard .

Ahhhh cool!! I bet he was so excited. Just wait until your belly is moving all over the place and DH can watch. I know my DH LOVED to just sit and watch my belly forever. Enjoy every movement, I sure do miss it.
