    I have an anterior placenta too, and I also feel quite large for how far I am. I was actually wondering this same thing too.....

    Posterior and measuring 2 weeks ahead... I think it has more to do with your torso size. I have a short torso so baby has nowhere to go but OUT.

    no thats what i have to and i am 25 weeks and just starting to get a bump so i am tiny (people always amazed when i tell them i am 25 because its sooo small) so i think its just that you are meant to have a big bump lol

    Either your Ob/midwife/Dr can tell you or just as the ultrasound tech.

    Anterior placenta and uterus is measuring 4 weeks ahead. This is my 4th baby though and my 3rd was 9 pounds 13.9oz. So far this one is average size so thinking maybe the 3rd baby just stretched me out.

    My placenta is anterior and I'm showing already but like another poster said I think torso length makes a difference. While I'm tall I have a short body and I think that's why I'm showing a bit. Plus I am naturally slim so that may also make a difference. Perhaps I have rubbish stomach muscles too!
