I can't wait for my DD to feel it. This morning we were laying in bed and DH had his hand on my belly feeling movements, but I know my DD won't have the patience to leave her hand there too long yet, so I'll need some more obvious movements for her.

Not here either. I still have a layer of fluff that is preventing that

DS1 isn't patient enough to wait but DS2 surprisingly will sit there and wait. He felt her move for the first time the other day! He had his hand there and all of a sudden right when she kicked he jumped backwards saying "ahh!" he had a weird look on his face and hasn't wanted to touch my belly since lol, he will be 2 the beginning of June.

I put DD's hand on my tummy last night but she didn't feel anything. Baby was kicking away though.. I just have to wait for the kicks to get stronger!

Yeah my girls kicks aren't strong enough through my fluff for anyone to feel from the outside.

Peyton doesn't have the patience yet. You can feel it from the outside but she's just not interested.

Thank you Quantum_Leap for my fabulous signature!!!

Yesterday I saw a Nurse Practitioner student first at my appt & she was feeling my belly trying to see if she could tell how baby was laying so she could do the Doppler & he kicked her so hard & she felt it. She's the only one who's felt it yet!

My kids are so excited to feel him kick one day but he's usually more active at night when they're asleep so it may be a couple weeks.

HAha. I tried to get my husband to keep his hand on my belly, but he doesn't have the patience. Everytime he moves his hand away the baby will kick. It's so frustrating.

I think the baby's kicking is too light at this point for anyone to feel on the outside.
I enjoy this time because its like my little secret.
It gets a bit weird when I can physically see my stomach moving LOL

We can see baby kicking from the outside, and if they had their hand on my stomach they could def feel it, but honestly this baby hangs out pretty deep in there. Not very often does it surface

It's funny how all babies are different... at this point in pregnancy I wasn't even sure if I had felt my DD move yet, but this baby is SUCH a mover. If she had moved like him, there's no way I could have doubted it. And I have a fluffy tummy, but I usually feel him lower, just above my bikini line. Although he's starting to move up some. At my appt this week the doppler picked up his hb right below my belly button and I can feel him around there too sometimes.

baby moves all the time... I am not sure she even sleeps! I feel her movements all day long they just aren't strong enough yet. DS wouldn't be patient enough to wait for it though.

Thank you Vicki for my AMAZING siggy!

I'm convinced that my baby is a Mama's Boy. I will tell my hubby where he is kicking so he'll put his hand on my tummy, but as soon as DH touches me.. Bug stops all movement... little stinker! Hopefully soon though, I think he is starting to feel a little left out.

Nobody has been patient enough to try yet, although the kicks are definitely strong enough to be felt from the outside. The funny thing is that when I put my hand on my own belly, baby usually stops kicking. It's like the warmth from my hand puts him to sleep or something. The kicks are too low to really feel comfortable having most people stick their hand down there and dh doesn't really seem interested in feeling it. I wish he would get excited about it and at least try to feel the baby though. He really has not been very 'into' my pregnancy this time around, which is weird because he was the opposite the first time around.

Elder daughter isn't patient enough to keep her hand there long enough. Also, baby is most active after midnight, when my kids are (usually!) asleep. Younger daughter doesn't even realize what's happening.

Hubby has no interest in feeling baby move. He never has in any of my pregnancies. He finds the whole idea of it a little... disturbing. It made me mad the first two, but now I just accept that this is his way.

Not yet. DH has felt her a few times but I'm going to wait until they are a bit stronger before I try to get my 4 1/2 year old son to try to feel
