That is so cool. My mom always said that when my dad used to do the same thing as your hubby, I would kick him too.

As of right now, my baby’s movements are sporadic and usually set off when I eat something sweet. Except this morning around 9am she was going nuts, lol.

When I feel the movement and the hubs is around I get him to touch my belly but then all of a sudden she stops, lol. He did feel her yesterday kick his hand 3 times. I can’t wait until the movements are more deliberate.

You read my mind Mrs. Spring!  I was going to post something about this today.

Little Lemon has decided that she is a night baby now, and whenever I lay on either side, she’ll migrate over and pummel me as if saying “Hey, you are encroaching on my space.”

Mr. DG gets a huge kick out of it because he’ll just sit there with his hand on her to take in the show.  Last night, she continued all night long with a grand finale at 6 am.

We’re going to have to get her on a day schedule when she shows up on the outside!

It’s so much fun to be developing such a relationship already πŸ™‚

LOL at demon baby (and I’m sure your baby is no demon!)

Ours loves funk and afro-carribean music as well (not usually what we listen to, but I catch a couple of shows occasionally and have been doing so more since she loves it so much!)

Chocolate is a big one, especially M&M’s. Literally, the first time I felt kicks, I had just had a bowl of them. I was so confused, but once I figured out what was going on, my husband got to feel.

She hates her personal space being invaded. If I’m reading a book or am on the computer and have either of them on my stomach, she kicks them. She even kicked the heartbeat monitor at the doctor’s one time. She also kicks me when I first lay down, because I tend to sleep partially on my stomach.

She’s a nighttime baby, so I feel her the most anywhere from midnight to 4 or 5 in the morning. I’m sure my new sleep routine isn’t helping any, as I can’t seem to sleep until 5 myself, but this isn’t due to her movements. She also likes to kick me when I first wake up in the morning.

Oh, and my husband and I went to see Percy Jackson on Valentine’s Day, and she would kick the most whenever it thundered on screen.

Now that I think about it, I don’t think my baby likes when I am leaning forward in my chair. I almost always feel movement. Can’t tell whether it is a kick but she definitely moves. Lately, I have been leaning forward a lot to help relieve my back pain.

My baby girl also likes to move between 2 – 5 AM. Usually I am making a bathroom trip during that time so it’s like she is letting me know I have to go. Again, they aren’t strong enough to wake me up yet but if I am up (even the slightest), I will feel her.

@Mrs. Spring – That is interesting. It may actually be true for me. She is never really moving when I am talking or laughing and maybe that is why she doesn’t move when the hubs is trying to feel her. I guess I will know for sure in a few more weeks.

Thanks for bringing that up. I’m going to start paying attention to it.

Well I am only 20 weeks but I already definitely have a mover on my hands! I thought I was imagining some of it but the Dr confirmed it with the doppler and on the u/s today. He was all over the place when they were trying to do all the measurements. Hubby can already feel them and I would have thought it was way too early for that. 

My baby boys movements are very sporadic. But I can only feel them if I’m laying or being very still at this point. I have a feeling I’ll be getting kicked pretty hard in a few months tho!

Too cute! The only consistent interaction I’ve noticed is when I put my hands on my belly, the little guy calms right down. He’s usually very active, but if I rub my belly he will stop… it’s really helpful if he’s kicking me in the cervix, but not so helpful if I want my husband or someone else to feel him. It’s cool though, I think there must be something about my touch that is comforting to him.

BabyMighty is quite the spunky thing.  She kicks when Darling Husband wakes up in the morning (an hour before I plan to wake up, but she’s not having that!).  Sometimes he’ll kill the alarm, then lay with his hand on my belly to feel her go.  I think his alarm wakes her up!

She kicks in the car (maybe my road rage is catchy?).  She kicks when I sit straight up in the car (or anywhere really).  She’s very active actually, but not when we need her to be!  We went to one of those 4D ultrasound places, but she stuck her head straight down in between my placenta and my uterus and refused to give us a face shot!  So we had lots of feet/leg shots, and only TWO profile shots after an hour.  They rescheduled us to come back in two weeks, but I doubt she will have moved.  She’s comfy where she is!  (And she LOVES to stick her feet in between my intestines and my ribs…it hurts so bad, I have to tickle her to make her move them!)

The 4D tech said things that make babies move are like ice water, ice cream, sour Skittles, and sour candies.  I read that babies can taste their amnio fluid at 24 weeks, so maybe they can taste the sour candy?
