I had an anterior placenta and I didn’t feel anything for a long time. What I did finally feel about 20 or 22 weeks in were hiccups. I rarely felt kicks and movements and things, but I felt those hiccups more and more as time went on. It would definitely have been nice to feel her more and I certainly had days when it worried me that I felt nothing, especially once I was supposed to be doing kick counts. If I wasn’t lying just right, she might’ve been moving, but I wasn’t feeling it through the placenta.

@calgarymommy2b:  I just started feeling regular movements at 21, and can now feel outside thumps at 24. It really stinks having an anterior!

 

i felt what felt like little muscle spasms first..

Awe man! Lol! I just went for my anatomy scan and she said I had an anterior placenta as well and may not feel movement quite as soon as others ๐Ÿ™ 

And the worst part is I’ve been trying for weeks to feel something!! Lol

Glad I’m not the only one ๐Ÿ™‚

I had an anterior placenta and felt definite kicks at 21 and a half weeks.  My husband was able to feel them from the outside from 23 weeks.

I have an anterior, too! It kinda stinks. I’m 19 weeks and was hoping to feel flutters by now.

I’m exactly 20 weeks today with an anterior and seem to be feeling exactly what you have been feeling lately with some twinges but not consistent or reliable.  ๐Ÿ™‚

I’mm 30 weeks with an anterior placenta… I feel kicks and movement but NOTHING like other ladies due my month feel.  I RARELY see or feel movement from the outside. DH/family have not been able to feel him from the outside. Dr said I may never get those types of movements.  I can’t do kick counts and will have to receive a stress test twice a week at 36 weeks to ensure everything is ok… I’m so upset I have an anterior placenta. I feel like I’m missing out on a big part of the experience!

I’m in the same boat, and super disappointed.  I was going to guess the gender based on where the placenta was located and the US tech mentioned I had an anterier placenta but didn’t say anything about it or even explain what it was.  You’d think since we don’t get our gender scans here in Canada till the 18-22 week mark they would say something so I wasn’t worried about not feeling anything in the mean time.

@CindyRelly:  My one gf told me to look on the bright side, we are less likely to be kept up all night feeling the baby kicking guess is a valid plus.

@applebeee:  Very true… most of the gals on my “month twin” thread are woken up by kicking… I don’t even feel him when I”m asleep.

I have an anterior placenta and haven’t felt anything yet at 20 weeks, 4 days. At my last appointment my doctor told me that she wouldn’t be surprised if I didn’t feel anything until about 24 weeks. She also mentioned that sometimes placentas can move as the uterus grows, so it’s possible that the feelings of movement might pick up drastically in that case.

I think I might have this. My ultrasound is tomorrow, so I’ll know soon. I hardly ever feel anything and I’m 19 weeks. It makes me worry about whether he/she’s okay. ๐Ÿ™

Once the baby gets a little bigger, you anterior placenta ladies will start to feel more distinct movements/kicks! Even through the placenta. My placenta is posterior, but my husband didn’t feel movement externally until probably 23 weeks, and now it’s very very easy to feel at 30 weeks.
