    Second pregnancy and second anterior placenta. Started feeling movement from 12 weeks. Definite kicks around 17 weeks and from the outside by 19 weeks.

    I'm 18 w 3 days with Bub 6 this is my first anterior placenta I've had an odd bubble movement over the last two weeks but nothing most days, I'm thinking of buying a Doppler. Has anyone done this or is it more worry I'm already paranoid and worried I can't feel anything, I'm going for morph scan on Saturday so hopefully that will help reassure me, how did everyone find movements as bubs got bigger, esp in 3 rd trimester?

    My ob told me not to do it, that it's hard enough to find the hb without placenta in the way. Wait a few more weeks, you'll be getting decent kicks. I had lots of movement in my third trimester.

    This. My midwife also cautioned against getting a doppler. It has the potential to make your life more stressful if you can't find the heartbeat because of positioning. I had a real increase in movement from around 22 weeks.

    I had midwives have a lot of trouble getting the heartbeat with a anterior placenta right up to 30 plus weeks and I am quiet a small person so I would avoid the doppler if I was you

    Definitely avoid the Doppler. I'm 30+2 with an anterior placenta and midwife couldn't find his heartbeat at my most recent appointment - she kept getting the placenta.

    If I didn't know better (all the movement) it would have completely freaked me out!

    I think it was about 18 weeks from memory. I have an anterior one again this time and will be interested in seeing if its any sooner second time round!

    I have an anterior placenta and I have a doppler. I've been able to find the heartbeat from just before 10 weeks. I use it about once a week, but it's been really helpful for me as I have had next to no symptoms for my whole first trimester, which has been great, but disconcerting.

    I'm just over 13 weeks now and I can find the heartbeat about 5 seconds after putting the doppler to my belly.

    I wouldn't call my OB if I couldn't find it though - not unless I had other reasons to suspect something was wrong.

    Default Anterior Placenta- When did you feel movement?

    I had an anterior placenta with my first bub and felt nothing until around 22 or 23 weeks from what I remember. It's completely normal.

    ETA. just realized this is an old bumped thread!
