    I had an anterior placenta with ds2 and didn't feel him until 20 weeks. He was a posterior baby during labour and birth but so was ds1 and he had a posterior placenta. I'm pregnant with my third with a posterior placenta and I didn't feel her properly until 20 weeks

    I had anterior placenta with my twins and didn't feel movement until later, after 20 weeks from memory. I felt that all the way through my pregnancy the movements were somewhat cushioned at the front. Certainly no arm and leg movements overly visible on the outside towards the end like I've heard others have. Had a c section so can't answer labour question.

    My 2nd preg now is with an anterior placenta (last one posterior). I felt little movements around 18 weeks and they are quite strong now at 28 weeks. They seem to mainly be on my sides. Baby is breech, but so was my DDS right up until the end (and of course this is still early).

    This is baby number 4 and I am nearly 20 weeks with anterior placenta and posterior lobe. I have been feeling slight flutters in and off since 15 weeks but have not felt any really good kicks yet. Am hoping to start feeling some good movement soon

    About 20 wks I think, I'm almost 30 wks now and get huge movements all the time. I feel less of the smaller tapping movements than I did with DD. I had a posterior placenta with DD and felt her from 16wks.

    It's when the OB tries to turn bub manually. It's done in hospital due to the risk of going into labour and apparently can be quite painful.

    Are posterior pregnancies generally advised to have a c-section, or is that more the mum's choice? Would they always offer and ECV first or can you just say you want a c-section?

    Do you mean placenta is posterior or bub is posterior (back to back)?

    I don't believe they offer c-sections for that as bub can be birthed that way. Both births almost ended in c-sections because they both got stuck for a long time but that doesn't always happen...some posterior babies turn during labpur or even while being birthed. Both of my boys were posterior and I have never been offered an ecv, I was just warned that I may have a lot of pain and pressure in my back and that my labour may be longer.

    I'm not sure I understand what you're asking?

    I have had 3 posterior babies during labour, generally they turn before they come out (one of mine didnt and was born posterior brow presentation) but I was never offered a c-sect or ecv for that reason...
