  • Question: When will my husband feel the baby move?

    Answer: While it takes a mom a good 24 weeks to begin feeling the baby, it will take your husband or partner and others longer. Sometime between 28-32 others around you can feel the baby if they put their hands on your belly. The baby just needs to be a bit bigger before it can be felt from the outside. However, be aware that baby will play games eventually with movement and outsiders and you may have to be patient.
