The Bump Expert

Like just about everything else, this one's slightly different from woman to woman (and pregnancy to pregnancy). You may have started feeling baby dance around in there, but it usually takes a little longer for the jabs to be felt from the outside. Most moms say others are able to feel their babies kick sometime between 20 and 30 weeks. Once you start to feel baby's little knees and elbows jabbing the surface of your belly, you can give your partner a heads up on times that baby is particularly active, like just after you drink a glass of cold milk, or when you lay down at night. Cuddle up with his hand resting gently on your tummy, and sooner or later (he'll have to be patient, of course) he just may feel a little thump!
