    Got a question 4 you all.. Im currently 18 weeks+ 4 days and feeling my baby kick/move every day at least 6 or 7 times. The other night babs started kicking me really hard and I asked my partner to put his hand on my belly and see if he could feel it.. and the strange thing is.... he could! He nodded every time he felt it so I knew he wasnt makingf it up or something. Im delighted that he can feel it, but Im just wondering how early your partners could feel your little one and is my partner feeling this because I was quite thin before pregnancy or because my babys a karate kid?!!? lol xxx​

    Why the thumbs down hon?? I think it's great he felt it. Mine felt it too about the same time and he/she hasn't stopped since just gets stronger and stronger!!! Oh and I'm quite fat so not sure that makes much difference :rofl:

    I felt first kicks at 17wks and my DH felt could feel the strong kicks at 18 wks too! It's amazing to think they can feel it so early.
    I'm slim..ish well at least I was before this! I just think it has to do with how baby is positioned.

    My OH felt movement for the first time on Monday when I was dead on 19 weeks, but he could only feel the top baby move, he couldn't feel the bottom one move. But as the week has gone on the movements have become more regular and stronger so I reckon it won't be to much longer before he feels the other one. Especially as I swear they had a fight yesterday and were kicking or punching one another and if they weren't fighting then they were having a party!

    I felt the first kicks at 22 weeks and within a day my DH felt them too! Now I can see the kicks from the outside and I'm 24 weeks.
