I started feeling movement at 19weeks. How long will it roughly be before my partner can feel it?

My H first felt it at around 20 weeks

This last week, so 23 weeks. He was being a bit of a div though - some days I could see my skin moving, but he claimed he couldn't feel it.

About 22 weeks (and I had been feeling movement from around 19). I could feel it on the outside straight away. The issue was timing. Every time I felt something I would call him over and then the baby would go really quiet. We've decided it has a future as a spy - it's very stealthy!

I'm certain I can feel it from the outside but oh can't!

On the day I turned 18 weeks; I'd been feeling him from 16 weeks.

DP thinks he can feel things on the outside and I'm 18 weeks, it does correlate with when I feel movement so he's probably right smile

I felt flutters at 15 weeks & proper kicks at around 20 weeks but I was around 24 weeks before dh could feel it from the outside. Hoping it will be a little sooner this time around!

petitverdot Sat 07-Jun-14 22:31:22

About 22 weeks for me

Cookiepants Sat 07-Jun-14 22:36:06

With me I got first proper movements at 18 weeks, and dh felt it for the first time this week at 21. Mine does seem to be very active though, I apparently have an anterior placenta but I never would have guessed!! Its lovely when they feel it for the first time (although he tried to say he was jealous of me being pregnant... Needless to say he got shot down for that one!)
