Oh my gaaaaaah! So jealous! 4.0 is kicking me right now, or squirreling away, but I can't feel anything from the outside yet.

My DH actually never cared to try and feel our son move during my first pregnancy. I actually had to force him to keep his hand in place during one of our birth classes to make him feel it, lol. He has later said that it weirds him out a little bit, just seems odd to him. So I won't try to make him feel this baby, but if it happens, it happens.

oh, i cannot WAIT for that part....

I have been feeling my little one move since 10 weeks (pops at that point) and am now nearly 16 weeks. I have an anterior placenta though (means it's in front of the baby, between baby and outside uterus wall) so that makes it hard to feel any movement. Im assuming it must be mostly off to the left hand side of my uterus though because ALL and EVERY movement I have felt has been off to the right of my belly button. Hoping that now that it's getting a bit stronger that I'll be soon able to feel it from the outside so my SO can feel it too.

Yes, I've felt some very light taps as well. It's usually when I go to bed. I'll lay down for the night... notice the flutters and put my hand very low just above my pubic bone. Last night, I felt a tap.. but it only happened once. The baby is getting bigger and stronger! Love it! Can't wait for the hubby to feel the baby. He doesn't have the patience to keep his hand on my lower stomach very long right now. It's definitely not frequent and very isolated when it does happen!

Ah, I'm so jealous! I've only been feeling Zoë on a semi-regular basis for the past few days, but nothing on the outside just yet. Cannot wait until the rest of the family can feel her, too. :) So exciting and happy for you!
