Moms with/had anterior placenta


How long until you felt good movement. It was confirmed at my 20 week scan that I have anterior placenta. I felt great movement with DS #1 by now and all I have had are little thumps. He is also breach at the moment so I don't know if that will have any affect on what I feel.

I'm 2 days away from being 20 weeks and I haven't felt a thing yet...they told me I had an anterior placenta at my 12 week scan and said I may not feel anything til 22/23 weeks. Have had a few checkups in the meantime and each time heartbeat has been nice and strong so I'm just staying relaxed and looking forward to the day when I do feel something!

I have one this time. I didn't feel like good, stronger movement until like 22+ weeks. Now at 25 weeks, I'm feeling hard rolls and thuds!

I had an anterior placenta with DS1 and I remember feeling consistent movements around 23-24 weeks!

I'm 21.5 weeks with an anterior placenta and I'm still just getting little taps and flutters, but it's gradually increasing. My OB isn't worried at all yet, and whenever we do an ultrasound she's very wriggly in there. It was pretty much the same with my first baby, I had an anterior placenta with her as well (plus I'm on the big side myself) and I didn't really get obvious movement until around 23-24 weeks, despite her doing backflips on the ultrasounds.

I had posterior placenta with my first son, and now anterior placenta with my second. It's crazy what a difference it can make!!
With my first, I felt movement from 15 weeks to the day (externally - against my hand - if my husband hadn't felt it then I would have dismissed it). I then felt the movement internally from 16 weeks, again to the day, and it just kept getting stronger and more frequent from there.
This time... I still felt first little "kicks" just after 16 weeks, but it was much less obvious, and less frequent. Now at almost 25 weeks, I feel obvious kicks/movement everyday, but nowhere near the consistency I was feeling it with my first. Some days, as recent as this week, I can realise I've got 3/4 of the way through the day and havent felt him - but then he'll make himself known in the afternoon/evening.
So different to my first at this point, who I'd feel at least once every 1-2 hours. It makes me nervous about when they start telling us to monitor movement, as I just don't feel its ever going to be as consistent this time.

I have an anterior placenta this time as well and noticed a huge difference! I felt a few strong movements early on then nothing forba while other then random movements here and there. Maybe the last month if that I have started to feel more consistent movements and at least a little bit of a pattern though I wouldn't say the pattern is always consistent. My OB said to feel for movement each day and that is fine, if I feel like I don't feel anything to call and they'd have me come by for piece of mind. You can ask yours about it and maybe they will offer that? I wouldn't worry to much though.

I had an anterior placenta with #1 and felt movement at 18 weeks. It honestly was never very strong, all the way to the end!

Anterior again this time, and I'm 16 weeks with still no movement.

Also it helps to keep in mind that with second or later babies, they have more room to move in there as your uterus is 'pre-stretched' as my doctor put it, so it can take a bit longer for those little hands and feet to make any impact.
