    Hey hon, I'm same size as you and also have an anterior placenta.. However I felt little movement at 19 weeks, but by 20 weeks i was feeling kicks. I'm sure you'll feel him soon hon, loads of people don't feel their babies untill 24 weeks so I wouldn't worry if i was you xxx

    You probably wont feel your baby kick untill the babies bones have ossified a bit more, as your placenta is muffling the kicks but your size doesnt make a difference hun. Im now a size 16, was a size 14 pre-pregnancy and felt movement at 13 weeks but my placenta is posterior so I have felt EVERYTHING very early..They say not to monitor movements untill 28 weeks anyway xx

    Hi - I didn't think size was anything to do with it either. I have an AP too and I felt something on christmas day (yay!) for the very first time so 19 weeks and 5 days. I only feel something when I'm in the bath or lying completely flat in bed so nothing when I'm standing up....yet...

    I'm sure it won't be long for you until you get a proper kick.

    I don't feel kicking as such but I feel like I have a goldfish in there. If I have an anterior placenta they haven't told me though.

    they didn't tell me either, I was looking at the report kinda thing from my 20 week scan and it said it in there, but I wasnt told, maybe its because mine is high up anterior so its not in danger(currently anyways) of affecting my birth... So maybe thats why she didn't feel the need to tell me? xx

    im a size 14-16 and also have a anterior placenta i didnt feel flutters till about 19 weeks and didnt feel baby kicking till about 23/24 weeks OH only felt baby kick about 2 weeks ago so i wouldnt worry some people feel it sooner than others, if it is your first it can also take a bit longer to feel it :)

    I didn't get any flutters, there was an almighty roll that made me feel faint at 16 weeks and then nothing until I got a couple of little kicks at 20 weeks.

    I'm a 16 and a 18 top (boobs [email protected]) and I felt her fluttering at about 19 weeks and now she gives me full on kicks!!

    Being bigger DOES stop you feeling it as early, it does state on a few sites, but nothing more than a few weeks. I think it's just the extra padding making it a little less easy to feel.

    Won't be long. It comes soon after the flutters!
