So, so far, DH nor I have been able to feel the baby kick on the outside, and DH has been a little sad. It seemed every time we wanted to try and see if he could feel him, as soon as DH put his hand on my belly, Arthur would stop kicking and moving.
Well, last night, I was complaining to my mom during our weekly phone call that everything in my belly area just ached. She suggested having DH rub lotion on my belly. She said it would help with the aches, it would be a sort of massage, and also get Arthur used to something touching the belly, and maybe DH would feel him move.
So tonight, I had DH rub lotion on my belly, and he was all "I don't feel anything, this is stupid." And then BAM! DH stopped moving his hand, and he was all, "I think I feel something, like a tapping." And I was all "He's kicking right there." DH got a silly grin on his face, and was all "It's my son."
He got to feel him kick a few more times, and he said that for the first time it's really felt real for him. He also said that my body is weird. LOL I was just so excited that DH FINALLY got to feel him that I had to share!!
