    Default Anterior Placenta- When did you feel movement?

    Just wondering when I can expect to feel bub with an anterior placenta? This is bub number three and I've never had an anterior placenta previously. With bub #2 I was definitely feeling her by now, but this time around nothing as of yet. I'm currently 15+4 and hoping that feeling bub might offer a little reassurance!

    Bub number 3 for me as well and first time with an anterior placenta as well. I am 16+5 and whilst I have felt some little flutters previously I have been doubting whether it was bub lol

    But the other night I definitely felt distinctive movement - so just over 16 weeks for me.

    It's so hard when you have an expectation from previous pregnancies isn't it?

    It does make it hard! I had expected movements earlier this time around but clearly I was wrong.

    How exciting! I hope I don't have to wait too much longer.

    That's around when I felt my first bub, too. I think I'll go crazy if I have to wait another 8 weeks!

    I'm definitely not getting a lot of movement so even though I am sure now I have felt him move I haven't had anything since I'm thinking I will be like you @Mmumm and be a bit stressed towards the end if I don't get consistent or regular movement!

    22/23 weeks for me last time with an anterior placenta. I've got another anterior one atm and I'm almost 16 weeks and nothing yet.

    This is one of my fears, not being able to feel much. The reason I knew something was wrong in my last pregnancy was because my daughter was so active and I noticed she hadn't moved in a few hours. I think my hospital should expect lots of visits!
