    i've felt this baby kick from around 16 weeks maybe even earlier! I was amazed as I was told that I wouldnt feel movement until on or around 20 weeks! Does this mean it may have moved? I was told by someone else that the midwife was a little silly for telling me that at my 12 scan as it will probably move.. does that sound right?? ..

    its probbly moved, mine was anterior at 12 weeks but I could actually see baby moving at 16 weeks. At 20 weeks the scan showed it had moved and was high posterior x

    I felt this baby at 14 weeks, by 20 weeks the kicks were really strong. At my 20.5 ultrasound the tech told me I may not be feeling kicks very much yet becuase I have an anterior placenta, yet I had been feeling kicks for at least 6 weeks by then, and quite hard ones for a week or two. Makes me wonder how hard the kicks would be otherwise!!

    my notes say i have a not low anterior placenta but ive been feeling baby move since 13 weeks and full on kicks at 16 week. so for me the placenta being where it is has made no difference to the amount of movement im feeling x

    I was told at 12 weeks I ave an anterior placenta so I went home and researched it! It obviously said you can't expect to feel too much too early but I've felt her moving around and kicking for weeks now!

    Well this gives me hope! I was told at my 12 week ultrasound that I have an anterior placenta and may not feel the baby as soon. I was a little bummed out because I can't wait to be feeling movement. I had one night where I swear I felt baby (like a rippling sensation), but I haven't really felt anything since. I lay in bed all the time concentrating really hard and trying to tell the difference between gas and what might be baby. :shrug: I can't wait to know for sure! :)
