I really hope the Anterior Placenta is the reason why I haven't felt any movement since Sunday. It's making me crazy!!! I actually ate two mini-candy bars last night in hopes to get the baby to kick around, but didn't feel anything (I also fell asleep 30 min later, so I probably didn't eat them early enough).

I'm such a worry wart to begin with and this just exacerbates the situation. My Doppler can't come soon enough, but now I'm worried that it'll come and I won't find a HB. UGH!

I bet your anterior placenta is why you haven't felt much movement. when I don't feel him for awhile I will lay down on my left side and just poke my belly. That seems to get him moving around. I have an anterior placenta and it was around 20 weeks before I started feeling him more regularly. Anterior Placentas suck in a pregnancy after a loss.

Thanks Melissa. I am so paranoid about sleeping on my sides. My belly droops and I'm afraid I'm sleeping on the baby. I prop up my belly on a cushion and I can't tell what is belly and what is fat. I feel pregnant for the first time - I just don't remember what is was like when I was expecting my son. I don't remember this stage at all!

Everything feels like GAS to me! I guess I really am an OLD FART!

I had an anterior placenta with both my kiddos. I didn't feel any movements at all with my first until about 19 weeks, and started feeling real kicks (as opposed to just random flutters off and on) around 20 weeks with my second. It really does "mute" baby's movements. There were lots of times when I could hear baby moving on the doppler at the doctor's office but couldn't feel a thing.
At the same time, you know it's never a bad thing to call the doctor's office if you're worried. That's what they're there for.

I'm sorry it's so hard to feel baby, and that your doppler comes soon! It's so easy to worry.

I agree with pp. just call your dr. That's what they're there for!! No need to stress if there is something you can do. My thoughts are with you.

I was planning on calling the Doc today, doppler or no doppler. I am just too much in a panic mode. Last night I was up for hours, worrying and praying for some movement. After about two hours I felt a hard lump, about the size of a baseball, rise up about 2 inches below and to the right my bellybutton and stick right out of my belly. I couldn't believe it! I woke DH and had him touch it and he said "That's the Baby!" After about 2 minutes, it went back down again. I was so amazed and relieved.

I was able to fall back asleep after that.

Yay. So glad that you felt baby move. I know how paranoid one can get when baby doesn't move for awhile. Hopefully in a few weeks baby will be big enough that even your placenta won't block baby's movements.

Aw I'm so glad baby moved for you. I recall when I was pregnant with Kody, after his movements were regular and easy to feel, that the times when I'd be worrying about him because he was quiet, seems he would always start wiggling to reassure me.

I had an anterior placenta with DD I didn't feel movement till 18-19 weeks and actual kicks till 21-22.

I'm sure that's the reason! Your still early! Good luck mama!
