My baby won't kick for anybody else!

I'm 21 weeks pregnant with my first child and I finally started feeling him really kick. I can tell he's going to be a morning guy just like his dad because that's when I feel him more active. The funny thing is that even though I'm feeling him kick and squirm no one else can. When he starts kicking I tell my fiance but as soon as he puts his hand on my tummy the baby just stops kicking. Its not only his dad he's not moving with but everyone else who tries. I know that some might say, "they wont feel him kick yet" and I know they might not but its just funny how he completely stops when someone touches my stomach. Yesterday I went for my regular doctors appointment and my fiance always goes with me. Once I laid down for my doctor to hear the baby's heart he starts kicking! He even kicks the Doppler machine, I can tell he's going to be a really picky baby!

It is pretty early for others to feel baby kick yet. That being said some babies just don't kick for others. My middle child was like that. My husband never got to feel her kick because everytime he would go to feel her kick she would stop. Even when I was in my last month of pregnancy and you could see her moving around just by looking at my stomach she would stop as soon as he would go to feel her. She is now 11 years old and still has that type of personality :). But give it another month or two and things may change.

Actually, that's pretty much what everyone would say. It is WAY too soon for someone else to feel him kick yet.
