    Default Anterior Placenta & Baby Movements

    Any ladies who have had an anterior placenta when did you feel your baby move?

    I read it takes longer to feel movement with an anterior placenta.

    I'm 16 weeks and this is my 3rd pregnancy so was hoping to feel definite movements earlier but have since been told my placenta is anterior.

    I think I've felt some nudging but assume this is the baby behind my placenta and it's being buffered. Was that your experience?

    My second baby had an anterior placenta and I didn't feel him at all until just under 20 weeks

    I have an anterior placenta and I didn't feel bubba move until 19/20 weeks, even then it was hard for me to figure out that it was bubba. The movements were unmistakable from about 22 weeks onwards. Now he's a very active little fellow!

    I have an anterior placenta too and this is my first baby. The last week I so I've felt like a gentle nudging/tapping on the outside which I am guessing is the baby moving but the placenta is 'cushioning' it. I am 20+4 and the last few nights/mornings its been a bit more noticeable. I can kind of feel it more inside now if that makes sense.

    I can't wait to feel it properly!

    I felt this bub (2nd bub) at 18 weeks. It's become a lot more consistent movement since 21 weeks.

    I have an anterior placenta as well

    ps. Do you know if you are having a girl or boy? Supposedly more girls are born when the placenta is anterior.

    This is my experience too! Bub then became very active between about 24-27 weeks. Now at 31 weeks, I feel rolls and occasional kicks and quite often.

    I'm having a boy too.

    @French Pear, I say enjoy it before the movements become really obvious. My bubba's current routine is to dance a jig in the middle of the night after I've gotten up to use the toilet. As cute and reassuring as this is, it makes getting back to sleep quite tricky. Some night's he's even woken me from sleep with his movements!
