When Where Others Able To Feel Your Baby Move?

Postby SilverAngel679 » Fri Nov 28, 2008 4:59 pm

Hey everyone, I have a question for all you mommies who 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. I really appreciate it.

I wasn't able to feel our daughter from the outside until six or seven months. My wife had been talking about how she felt it from the inside for a couple of months by then. I don't know how much of this was not being able to feel it when it happened, and how much was not trying to feel it at the right times; my wife insisted that for a long time, the baby would quiet down every time I put my hand on her belly.
