Am 24 weeks pregnant today and can feels babs kicking and moving away strongly but hubbie can't. The poor dote is spending hours with his hands on my belly waiting to feel something but while I can feel the kick etc he can't. How long before the movements get strong enough for him to feel do ya think?

I can't WAIT for this - the last scan we had nearly blew DH's mind, so I can just imgaine how emotional he'll be the first time he actually feels his baby kick! :o)ll

I know my hubbie gets so disappointed when he can't feel anything yet.

my hubbie felt d first kick wen i was 24 wks... i remember i knew myself it was getn stronger n he felt it he got such a shock!!... try explain tho that he's not gonna feel a massive punch or anythin and its not as strong as we feel it i tink hubbie was expectin to get a big kick at first rather than a little thud!!... Best of luck its so exciting!! :wv

I think it was at least 26 weeks before DH felt kicks and even then there was only the odd one. Baby was a bit shy and used to go quiet when DH's hands were on my belly. I think my LO is a late starter as it's still moving around like mad after 34 weeks and this is when they are meant to quieten down. :eek

My hubby first felt it at around 24/25 wks too. He was so fascinated by it! The novelty wore off a bit though :o0 Now I constantly watch my belly dancing from the kicks & I keep saying "oh did u see that" to DH & he's like "no I'm watching tv, not your belly"!! :o0
