When Did Others Feel Your Babies Kick?

Postby SilverAngel679 » Fri Nov 28, 2008 4:56 pm

Hey everyone, I have a question for all the mommys who are further along then me or have had a baby already.
I'm 20 weeks, 3 days pregnant with twin boys and even though I'm feeling the boys move daily for the most part and am estatic about it, I was just wondering when about are my husband and every one else going to be able to feel them move by putting their hands on my belly?
I'm a big girl, so I know what ever the answer is I'll be a bit behind that, but about when does this happen? 24 weeks? 28?
My husband is so anxious to feel them and I want him to so bad, it's too good a feeling to have all to myself...lol.
Thanks for your feedback ladies and I hope your all enjoying your pregnancies as much as I'm enjoying mine.

I'm not sure if I'm feeling baby movement or not. I am at 14 weeks, and for the past three days I have been having a strange feeling like (don't laugh!) spiders or like an octopus moving, but it is low-down in the bikini area, which I don't think is gas, because I don't have intestines that low. (I don't think!)

wow, I'm not sure. Maybe your have one or both placentas in the front? I know that can delay feeling them. I've been feeling them pretty good for the last 2 weeks a little stronger every day. Ask your dr. about it.

I have my 20 week US tomorrow, so I will get to see that they are just fine and I will ask why I don'y think I feel them moving. They are always moving like crazy at my US's and I have them done every 2 weeks.

Well ladies, most of you where right. Others can most likely feel the babies moving between 20 and 24 weeks! My husband was able to feel the babies at about 22 weeks 5 days and it was amazing. My little Santino (baby B) kicked his hand while we where laying in bed.
I still can't believe that it happened. All this time worrying that it might never and praying to be pregnant just to have that moment that we've waited for for so long finally happen for us.
Thank you all for your replies and for answering the poll!!
