I noticed that you mentioned you had an anterior placenta when you were pregnant with Rhianna. Just wondered if it caused you any problems during labour/delivery? I've heard that it can cause the baby to lie in a posterior position (back to back) and that makes labour more painful.

I have heard that too, my brothers fiance is pregnant as well, being induced tomorrow, her placenta is up the front and her baby has been led with its back down the left side all the time, so I guess it just depends really

I guess only time will tell, but I was just curious to hear someone else's experience.

Yes it would be interesting to hear as I too had heard the same as you, my midwife said to me baby faces the placenta, so from that I took it if it was up the front then baby would be back to back

My midwife told me that the baby tends to face the placenta too, which is why we had such a difficult time getting any photos at our scan yesterday.

I don't feel very many movements from her because of the position of the placenta, which is a real shame because I LOVE feeling those baby movements.

It's just frustrating more than anything else.

Sorry just seen this

I had no pains in my front with rhianna all the pain was in the back and i did end up having an epidural but after they gave me the epidural they checked me and i was 9cm dilated so i think i would of been able to handle it without the epidural, the pain was not agony (for me) like it can be for some with back pain, it went as well as it could of gone

eta: baby kicks are really frustrating, i used to go to hospital with rhianna near the end to get monitored because i couldnt feel her moving/kicking, the monitor used to pick it up but i couldnt feel it because of the placenta, i felt quite sad i didnt get to experience the body parts sticking out etc but with lacey i did so its all good

That's reassuring Sarah (that you think you could have handled the pain without the epidural), because I am planning on having this baby in a midwife led unit and they can't administer epidurals there. Hopefully the baby will either move before labour kicks off or I will be able to cope with the pain just using gas & air!

I felt loads of movements with Zach, so I am a little disappointed that I can't feel those same movements this time round, especially as this is probably my last baby.

Karen, the midwife did say placentas do 'migrate' as you progress through pregnancy, so it may well move into a slightly higher position than it's in at the moment.

i was told it doesnt move, because the placenta has actually attached it self to the front, so u will never the full feel of kicks etc but it may move a tad higher
