Hi ladies,

Just a quick question--I haven't felt an abundance of kicks. I do feel the odd twang here and there and can definitely feel some sort of 'movement' but a lot of it is near my lower back (where I've always had cramps during my cycle) and less in the front. I definitely can't feel the kicks from the outside.

Does this mean I might have an anterior placenta? Would they have noted this during an earlier exam? I'm not overly worried about it, just curious because it seems that others are having much more action than I am!

I have an anterior placenta and I can't feel hard kicks, can't see kicks on the outside, and Matt can't feel kicks and I'm 22 weeks today.

Last Wednesday was when I first felt my "flutters" and Alyssa has been quiet for two days now.

When I had my gender scan they told me my placenta was anterior. My SIL had an anterior placenta and she said she didn't feel her daughter kick a lot the whole pregnancy. We kind of miss out on all these "moments"...it sucks

I have an anterior placenta and it definitely limits what I feel.

It's more like popcorn or a wiggly fish, and no one else can feel it yet. The technician at my 20 week U/S told me that I would feel a lot less, until I'm bigger and/or the placenta moves. Sounds like it moves a LOT!

Are you doing a 20 week scan? That will tell you a lot more about it.
