    Default Anterior placenta when did you feel the baby movement?

    Hi ladies,
    I am nearly 20w and haven't felt any movement. I have a Doppler. I can actually hear baby kick from time to time. I am just hoping to feel it soon! If you have anterior placenta, how long did you have to wait to get the flutter and popping feeling?

    Tiny flutters around 18 weeks. More distinct movements around 22 weeks.

    It was exactly 20 weeks for me. I think I was closer to 30 before my husband could feel it.
    This time around I have a posterior placenta and I felt it at 14 weeks. Kicks could be felt on the outside by 20 weeks. The difference is crazy!
    There are lots of benefits to an anterior placenta though - I never got woken by kicks or felt uncomfortable kicks, it was great!

    I've only had an anterior placenta with my 3rd. Didn't feel proper kicks until around 24 weeks.

    Around 17 weeks, but only if laying down on my back to begin with having quiet time. Proper full on kicks and rolls around 20ish weeks. DH didn't feel anything for weeks and weeks though.

    I started feeling flutters and pokes at 18 weeks, but nothing solid until 22weeks. DH didn't get a look in until around 27 weeks 😊
    It is great kick wise, I haven't really had any painful kicks or limbs to my ribs etc
    One problem I have now with the anterior placenta is that a week out from my induction and Bub loves to hug it/face it so looks like I'm in for a posterior labour - total bummer from what I've heard! haha
    I don't think that's always the case though.

    I was also around the 22w mark before I felt anything. Felt a little ripped off really :-)
