So I am now 25 weeks and 2 days and have been waiting FOREVER for Micah to feel the baby. There were honestly times I was worried, which was totally stupid, but I was. Well on Sunday when I was exactly 25 weeks, Micah finally felt Lila and I mean he really felt her. I had my hand on my stomach and felt her very noticeably twice when I told Micah to put his hand on me. I was worried that she would stop moving, because that is honestly what she kept doing every other time, but this time we were both just patient and she REALLY moved for him. He felt her several times and it was the most I've ever felt her, too. It was a really great bonding experience. I'm so glad Micah was finally able to feel her. It was really important to me and now he can feel like she's even more real and he can be more involved in her development.


  1. It makes such a difference when the spouse can feel the baby move. It's their baby too, but for so long only you can feel it! Exciting! Pretty soon you'll see a foot (or elbow) sliding across your stomach :)

  2. Both of my kids would be doing gymnastics inside then when Jared would put his hand on my stomach they would stop. It was REALLY frustrating, but I know what you mean with finally having them be able to be a part of the process!
