Just curious how consistent your movements have been in late 2nd tri?

My first pregnancy my boys weren't extremely consistent but it was enough that I could notice differences.

I am 26+2 This one is driving me nuts! She gets on a consistent schedule for a week then it feels like she disappears for a day or two with minor movements then suddenly she has a new schedule and moves around like crazy around the same times each day then she stops moving again. I thought for sure I was going to call OB this AM because she's been 2days lack of movements now suddenly she's started moving all around again 😑 I do have an anterior placenta this time which I didn't have last time but I don't know if that makes a difference?

Anyways anyone else have a more inconsistent or randomly quiet LO?

Can't help you much because movements were pretty consistent with my son by late second tri but I do bet you any money the anterior placenta isn't helping the situation with you now. From what I've understood it's only when the baby kicks *around* the placenta that you feel it, so I would guess it's totally possible that the time you're not feeling her, she's kicking straight forward.

I'm sure that anterior placenta is really "muting" some of the feeling.

My son was very consistent with movements and things, whereas this pregnancy is different. He is lower, a bit slower, and doesn't do the same big movements as my first pregnancy. Also, I guess that I just don't pay the same attention as I did the first time when I didn't have a little one to chase around- maybe that could be the case with you too?

The anterior placenta really throws things off. Even now, at 36 weeks, there are days I don't feel my LO much (I have an anterior placenta) until I stop moving and really pay attention and actually watch my belly bump move. Then there are days where I notice her a ton. My movements didn't become more consistent until about 30 weeks.
