The last week I have been noticing the baby's movement picking up! I have been feeling lots of little kicks and stretches! At night if I am laying still on my back and keep my hands there when she is moving, I can feel faint movements from the outside! I was SO excited! I tried to get DH to feel it, but he is too impatient and moves his hand after a few minutes of nothing.

I am enjoying them being really faint right now because I know soon enough they are going to be become uncomfortable! I just can't believe I can feel it from the outside already! Then again, I am pretty petite so she probably doesn't have much else room! I'm curious to see what baby measures at her 20 week u/s!

Yay!!!! Awesome for feeling it from the outside! A couple more weeks and you may be able to see your belly jumping when she kicks!

I have been feeling movement from the outside for a few weeks now. The other week, I was able to pull out my iPhone when Declan was moving up a storm. You can totally see my belly move when he does. Pretty awesome stuff

I so can't wait for this. The last couple days movement has been minimal I got spoiled having like 3 or 4 days in a row where I felt quite a bit! I can't wait for it to start getting more and more consistent!

I can't wait for that too. I worry when I get a few days of less movement, but I still feel movement every day, not on the outside yet though. I just had some sweet tea and the baby has been moving a ton in the past few minutes.

So exciting! I'm assuming since I am due in the end of the month, here pretty soon we should all be feeling lots of movement!

Lucky!! LOL. I feel it on the inside, but Tristan and Kelly can't feel it from the outside yet.

I am still barely feeling anything on the inside and this baby is likely 18w or 18w1d (I know my ticker says differently). Either I've got a placenta in the front or this baby is just that much quieter than my others. It's really kinda strange for me and very different than my other pregnancies.

I started feeling from the outside around 18 weeks but my husband moves his hand after like 5 seconds and still hasn't felt it! The baby has been measuring 5-7 days ahead on the ultrasounds so maybe that's why?

occasionally I feel something from the outside, but I think the placenta is going to muffle a lot of it...

Yep! DH has been able to feel baby turning around. He hasn't been able to catch a kick yet, but it's always fun for me when DH can start feeling it so he can start bonding.

It's so fun to be able to feel the baby! My boys were able to feel the baby move from the outside last night. It is so cool to be able to share the baby with others now!
