    I’m no longer pregnant but I had an anterior placenta. I didn’t actually know that until late into my third trimester, but it explains a lot.

    I’m assuming I have a posterior placenta since I was able to feel movement early on. This hasn’t been confirmed by my doctor.

    I’m 37 weeks pregnant with my first and have an anterior placenta. I feel him move and squirm all day long, but even though I see my stomach move and the movements are stronger than they were in the second trimester, I’ve never seen those “alien” like movements that other moms get. I also have a pretty laid back baby, so he’s never made huge rolling movements or anything. I do sometimes wonder though if I would feel him stronger with a posterior placenta.

    Also, his movements have never hurt me or woke me up at night, which I guess is a good thing!

    Mine is anterior, and I hope to the little baby Jesus that my next one is posterior.

    Posterior for this one 🙂 but my last baby had an anterior placenta, I swear that’s why i ended up with a back to back birth! (apparently babies prefer to face the placenta) it was awful :/

    I have no idea. Is there anyway to tell by an U/S pic?  I felt my first flutter at 13+5 so I’m assuming posterior?

    @Lyndzo:  The US tech or OB will usually let you know. I asked at my 20 week anatomy scan, and the tech told me mine was anterior.

    No one even told me I had an anterior, I saw it on the report. The only reason why I found out was because they gave me a copy of the report as it had the gender on it. At the time I wasn’t sure if I wanted dpi stay team green or not. When I was re-reading the report months after getting it, I noticed it said my placenta position was anterior. It’s funny though cuz this girl can kick and she can kick darn hard. I wonder how it would feel if the placenta was posterior.

    @BearyLovely:  Oh goodness, no! I’m no longer pregnant because I delivered a healthy baby girl! But thank you for your concern. 🙂
