Mine will kick/wiggle/roll whenever I talk to my belly or rub it :)
But whenever my hubby tries to feel all the kicking movements, the baby stops.. and kicks when he takes his hand off.
lol it's such a tease.

i think they deffinately can! my daughter plays with her dad all the time she never misses a poke for him. and wjen he rubs my tummy she will actually poke out that side and lean into it. not to mention when he reads books and talks to her she will move to the side closest to him and kick there non stop. even during the day she will be sleeping and as soon as her dad gets home and says one word shes up and kicking. totally a dadys girl. no mater what he gets kicks . unless im mad at him then she will give him silent treatment until i forgive him LOL

I really am not sure, I'll admit... my little one loves to kick my hand when I place it on the belly, but when it comes to anyone else (adult wise) she just completely ignores them. Now when it comes to her brothers. She loves my oldest, he kisses my belly every so often, he hugs it, and then at some point he decides it is best to poke the baby, with his mischivious smile. They both love each other a lot, and he is so happy to have a baby sister coming. When it comes to my youngest the same happens, though a little more gentle. Now my husband or anyone else, don't get that respond at all.It is kind of funny. So I'm not really sure.

I think my baby girl really feels that me and her papa is touching my tummy... Every time her papa touch my tummy, she kick back and try to move around over and over...
i love the feeling but sometimes it worries me... I like her to get enough of sleep... I also worry that my baby is not comfortable inside that is why she is kicking and moving... Or maybe i eat a lot or she didnt like the food i ate or im stress....

They can definitely feel it when i was pregnant my baby would kick all the time then soon as someone try and feel her kick she would stop lol she only kicked whenever my dog laid his head on my tummy then she would kick like crazy and now shes 3mths and if he licks her feet cause sometimes he'll sneak a kiss in there she goes right back to kicking him lol

I think they can definitly feel it. With my second, every time I rubbed my stomach he would push where my hand was. He loved it. My first one would hide when I rubbed my belly.
They are opposite now. The oldest loves back rubs and the youngest doesn't care for it.

When my 18 month old son was "kicked" by my belly one day while he was watching tv, he figured he could interact with my tummy. Now he will randomly come up to my tummy and slap the skin, just to get the reaction out the baby. It looks like they are already having brother fights!! lol
When he is feeling sweet he will lay his head on my tummy and talk nonsense to the baby or he will get his GloWorm from his bed and turn the lullabies on and press it against my tummy. The baby will move around.

I honestly think that babies can tell when it is not mommy touching the belly lol cuz every time someone else touches my belly he stops kicking or moving lol but when i do he gets all excited. Odd thing also is that I have a cartain girlfriend who hasnt been around the whole pregnancy and really isnt around that much at all but whenever she gets around me my baby just starts moving like crazy. All she has to do is talk to my belly and he will go nuts. Its so odd cuz he doesn't do that for my bf, who i live with and see all the time.

I believe so. My little brat actually stops moving if a hand goes over my belly. The only time my poor husband has gotten a good feel of her moving was during the 4th of July and she was jumping around during fire works. Makes it really hard to prove she's kicking.
