Felt the baby move from the outside!

I was sitting on the couch with my family last night watching a movie and the baby started moving around so as I always do, I put my hand where she was kicking to see if I could feel it and I could! It was so amazing!! Now I need to get her kicking again so the kids and DH can feel her, too. Smile

Wahoo! It is so awesome! My DH felt our little guy 2 weeks ago for the first time. I loved it! I even saw my stomach move a little the other day! Crazy. It will only get more distinct! I can't wait!

Love all the squirmy babies! DD just felt the baby move today too, and then she said "but I can't hear her. How come I can feel her but I can't hear her at all?" So cute! This pregnancy stuff is baffling to her!

SO jealous ... my placenta is up in front, so I've got a nice cushion for this kid to bounce off of. I've felt him/her move ... but not a ton. I can't wait until it's more firm and regular!!

I am *finally* now feeling movement too--just not very often, and it's very subtle still. But at certain moments, I can feel it from the outside if I have my hand in just the right spot at just the right time. Last night baby was wiggling a lot, so I had DD put her hand there and she felt it! She giggled and said "That was the baby???" So cute. Also the other night the baby stomped on my bladder like three times in a row. That was not as much fun! Wink

I think feeling the baby move is probably my favorite part of pregnancy. When I was 8-9 months pregnant with DD, my husband could press his hand on my belly and she would push back. It seemed to be deliberate. So cool!

I've got the same issue here-- but it's weird, I feel him kicking my insides, and I can sort of feel his feet kicking on the side of my belly.

Baby moved the outside of my stomach the other night. Kinda freaked me out (but in a good way). DH has been feeling baby move for 2 weeks now and the smile on his face when he feels it will never get old. I've tried to get him to see my beely move, but he usually looks away right before it happens (It's not that frequant yet). It's very cool!!

I haven't been able to see my tummy move yet but I've had a few jumps while laying down, I was just too late in looking to see it happen. Smile

Right now she's like that cartoon frog who only performs for its owner. Every time the frog needed to act for someone else it was quite. Every time I feel her move from the outside I grab someone's hand and suddenly she stops. Grrr, LOL.
