Anyone had/have one?
I feel baby boy kicking a lot but I was wondering if there's a point when he will get big enough where I won't feel him because of my anterior placenta.
Also, with both low-lying and anterior, has anyone ever had a complication if it didn't move up?
I know most people's move up before birth.
STILL on pelvic rest which is just TORTURE for me and hubb and I have about a month before they do an ultrasound to check the placenta's position. The plus side is that we spend A LOT more time being cuddly/kissy which is so sweet. But still so FRUSTRATING!
I had my rainbow baby on December 14, 2011. Now my family is complete!
I have an anterior placenta and was told as baby got bigger I would feel more movements not less since she would be able to kick stronger. I found that to be very true. I have no problems feeling movements .
As for the low lying part I am not sure. Sorry.
I have been on pelvic rest for months. So looking forward to next week when that restriction is lifted .
Ive had low-lying and anterior, but seperately. With the low-lying, I was never on bed rest, and it moved up by the 30th week. With anterior, I hardly ever felt baby move, even towards the end. So if your feeling baby alot, most likely that will not change at all, I guess it will depend on high the placenta moves up later. If it moves up alot, the the placenta may start to hide some of kicks your getting. (since its low right now, it may not be in the way of the baby currently).
Sorry for the pelvic rest, hopefully soon that will be gone too!
Thank you Shortcake for my beautiful siggy..]

I have (and had) an anterior placenta. Liam's was high (so no low-lying experience) and this one is right-smack-dab-in-the-middle I know that most low-lying placentas DO move by the time you hit 32-34 weeks. Even those who have placenta previa (partial or complete covering of the cervix) in early pregnancy often do not at the end (although a complete covering is less likely to move than a partial). So you have plenty of time for it to get up higher and prevent issues delivering him.
As for the movement question, I would think you would feel MORE movement as he gets bigger. The baby kicks with their feet more often and him being head-down and your placenta being low would mean he would have free reign of your ribs I felt very little with Liam, being his feet were into the placenta toward the end. But I never felt a ton with him in the first place. This baby, I feel constantly, everywhere and he has an anterior placenta. So I would not worry about not feeling the movement at this point. If you feel it strongly now, you will likely continue to do so.
