So this may be a bit random, but does anyone else have a partner that thinks feeling the baby kick is kinda gross? DH thinks its gross to feel his own heart beat if that provides any context, but I can't help but mope a second. He's fine with holding me/belly but just no kicks.

On a funnier note, DH and I went grocery shopping yesterday and he about died laughing at my wide stance yoga-esque move to reach something at the back of the bottom shelf.. men..

Oh, and i'm not fat, i'm round, which is a shape, so technically i am in shape..

Oh yes, dh's got jokes.. XD

I'm actually one of those people who thinks it's "gross." I have no children at the moment but I plan on having one or two, and the thought really creeps me out. Wiggling, kicking, living organism inside my body..it's so freaky, ahaha.

Congrats though! And I like that, "in shape" xP I gotta remember that.

I was really freaked out by that, too. I was also worried, since I'm a jumpy person, that I'd be jumpy all the time. I was actually dreading it.

Turns out, it was my favorite part of pregnancy... it was really cool. :)

the fizzling bubbly kicks made me feel weird and creepycrawly, but now that i'm in the "that's definitely a kick" stage, its fine.

You are like all my friends right now, they are so freaked out by the mere thought that he is moving around inside.

Yeah, mine thinks its freaky. He also fell asleep at our twins' ultrasound because he can't make out a thing. The pregnancy stuff used to get to me, but he's such a great dad, I don't worry about it anymore (this will be our 4th).

Same here. With my first few kids I was a bit hurt/miffed by it, but by the time I was having the 4th and later, I was amused by it. ^_^

My husband didn't say 'gross' but he did say that the first time he felt baby move, he felt like he needed to save me from aliens and stab my stomach. He's since gotten over the weirdness and is not very interested in her acrobatics.

My husband always thought the baby moving was so freaky. I thought it was cool and it literally freaked him out and he didn't want to touch when baby was moving a lot.

My DH used to jokingly call me "waddles."

I was a waddle-walker before i got pregnant so thats nothing new ;D

Huh. Well, people get weirded out by the strangest things, so if his own heartbeat or pulse is unnerving him, I can sort of see a connection. Try not to take ot personally, apparently he can't help it. but yeah, it's strange (maybe he's seen Alien to often? ;-) ). Love the in shape remark! :D

heck, I thought it was freaky, before I'd been pregnant for a while and learned to embrace the weirdness and enjoy the "poke at the baby parts" games you use to screw with your kid before it's even born.  now it's my favorite part of pregnancy :)

anyway though none of that is as weird as childBIRTH, if he thinks your insides through your skin are gross, wait until he sees your insides coming out of your skin... it gets weird, yup.

lol. I'm with your hubby. I really grew sickened the more both of my girls moved. I would literally be freaked out by flipping and moving at night.

my partner doesn't feel that way about the baby kicking but i am rather squeemish about feeling for my baby's kick with my hand. something about the reality that is: A BABY IS IN YOUR BELLY does frighten me at some level i think.

oh lord I'm one of those people!!! I feel little twinges and things right now, and the idea there are babies twirling around in there is way too much. I made the mistake of watching some twin video (you can search for twins fighting in womb and find it) and to see them stretching and kicking was too much too. Maybe one it's more of a kick I'll feel differently. Otherwise I have a long couple months ahead of me...

How far along are you? Between like 24 and 32 weeks, both my sons would literally do flips making my ENTIRE stomach move in waves and my second would kick so hard and stretch out so far that my skin would raise up several inches. I always slept with my stomach against my husbands back, and my son would kick the ever loving crap out of him all night. It was a good thing it didn't bother either of us, lol.

I"m 23 weeks today :)

he does a good bit of moving ever other week or so, but mostly just subtle jabbing. As much as my ribs have been hurting i'm not looking forward to somersaults..
