EXCELLENT to know!  Thanks so much for sharing!  I was just reading a bit about anterior placentas last night as I have one as well.  I hadn’t realised it was more likely to induce back labour until I did my reading and I was starting to freak out about having back labour…. especially as my local hospital doesn’t like to give epidurals unless it’s absolutely necessary (not sure if they consider back labour ‘absolutely necessary’ although I’m guessing I would consider it so!)  I will bookmark this info and keep it in mind for later as I’m only 16 weeks now.  Thanks!  🙂

@runsyellowlites:  Hmmmm… that definitely makes me think, because I’ve had awful pain in my low back lately, especially when I’m sitting down, almost like back cramps on crack.  It might be too late for me to do that, but I think I’m going to try them out anyway.  Thanks for the tip!

Thanks so much for sharing! I have a anterior placenta as well.

What do you mean by a sunny side up baby and back labor?

Obviously I need to start reading up on birthing!!! Any book recos?

Thanks for the tips – I’ve been doing the cat cow as part of my “ab” workout and now I know there’s a good reason to continue!

We just found out I have an anterior placenta yesterday. So I have some additional learning to do. But it’s nice and high, so there’s no concern about it covering my cervix.

Thanks for the tip! I also did some reading on that site spinningbabies.com that was suggested on hellobee, and there was some interesting tips on there as well. 

I have been achy lately, especially in my hips, so I’m planning on getting a stretching schedule going anyways. I’ll certainly add some cat/cow in there. 

Anterior placentas unite!

Thanks for this tip! 

On a related note, when did you start feeling movement??  I’m 20 weeks and have felt a few little movements here and there but nothing crazy.  And our little guy is SUPER active at all ultrasounds and hb checks.

Also my placenta is “anterior right” and my cervix is high left so I don’t think there’s an issue there.

@winniewolf: My OB said I could expect to feel more regular movement in a month – so 24 weeks. But I’m curious about when the ladies who are further along actually felt regular movement too!

@Goldilocks1107: I’m 24 weeks and started feeling movement about 2 weeks ago. It turned into regular movement about a week ago, so pretty quickly. I felt absolutely nothing before that; no flutters or tiny kicks. I actually think the first thing I felt was a roll, though. My belly got all lopsided and uncomfortable for about 30 seconds, then went back to normal. I didn’t really “feel” anything beside discomfort, but I assumed that is what had happened. The kicks started a day or so after that.

I’m almost 24 weks and it’s probably been a good 6 weeks since I felt my first “I’m definitely sure it was baby” movement. Like a rolling lava lamp.

Last week or so I’ve felt a handful of times what I *think* is baby but can’t be sure. Still waiting for the constant movement!
