We were laying in bed last night and I was reading a book. DH put his hand on my tummy as he was falling asleep. As soon as he did, he felt a little boom, boom. I didn't say anything because I wanted to see if he noticed. He instantly had a huge grin on his face and said, "Wow was that the baby? Woah that is weird feeling!!"
I am also so surprised he was able to feel it this soon. Maybe because I am kinda on the slim side? I don't know and don't really care either way. I'm so happy he was finally able to feel what I am feeling and we can share this pregnancy in that special way
Awww Ashley! I'm so happy for you. That is SOOOOO sweet and exciting! I feel like if someone put their hand on my belly, they could feel him kick. He is kicking SUPER POWERFUL now. I havent tried to feel it from the outside yet. My DD has layed her hand on there a couple times after I told her he's kicked. But she isnt paitent enough to wait long enough for him to kick again. And he doesnt always kick twice in a row, so... But I LOVE the feeling!
That's awesome, Ashley!!! I know your DH had to love it, too. My boys and DH, for that matter, aren't patient enough to wait for the movement, LOL. There's been a couple of times when I'm watching my belly while she's moving and I'll see it jump when she does, so if they'd just be a little patient, they could feel it, too!!!
So happy you got to experience that with your DH already!!

Oh Yay! I love it when DH can feel the baby too! I was about the same gestation as you are when he felt our first baby. I'm pretty slim as well and I think that does help. Stilllll waiting to feel movement myself though! Come on baby, I know you're in there!!!
