Do you think its possible for the baby to hurt the placenta from movement? I think this baby has for the most part, been facing out, and the past couple of weeks, especially last night and today, she has been moving so hard that it actually is uncomfortable, you know with the rolls and pushes?

I just worry that it'll somehow damage the placenta.. also, do you think risk for a cord accident is higher for an anterior placenta? I'm just contemplating and wondering what you guys think or have been told/read..

hmm...i dont know but i'm curious too. The only reason I even know that I have an anterior placenta is because I saw my ultrasound report. My OB has never said anything or talked about it at all.

Hmm I never even thought about whether the risk could be higher for a cord accident with an anterior placenta... I hope not.

I don't think the baby would hurt the placenta from movement though - well i just think no matter where the placenta is, dependent on the baby's position, it would get a good kicking anyway?

Since 20+ weeks I have felt so much movement that I'm actually wondering whether my placenta is still anterior... I mean I know it doesn't 'move' as such, just that as the uterus grows, the placenta can go into a different position... I'd love to know but I don't think my ob is planning any more scans.

I feel the same way about movement w/ placenta.. Mine was low lying for the first half half of my pregnancy, and it slowly started moving up, according to US.. But I can feel her right under my skin.. So I don't know.

Oh no! I hope having an anterior placenta doesn't put you at a higher risk for a cord accident! That would just be one more thing for me to worry about What made you think this?

Well just a guess, but I wouldn't think it would increase the odds of a cord accident. I have an anterior placenta as well, and although I feel movement quite a bit, it's not like others discribe, or like my first pregnancy. I also don't think having an anterior placenta makes it more likely for the baby to hurt it. I think in any positions it probably gets kicked etc, but I think espeically at this point it's thick etc, plus there are fluids in there and other things that make it slippery I'd think.

Everything I've read about an anterior placenta says that it's not a problem, doesn't cause problems during delivery, and is considered "normal." Look how many of us in this DDC have one!!

Yeah, i got to thinking about it, and soooo many women just in this DDC have anterior placentas.. I was just thinking that a normal, perfect position is at the top of the fundus, then the cord hangs down.. Ours is in the front, but you guys are right, it should be any worse or better than any other positoining...

When I had my 20 week ultrasound with the radiologist she said she preferred them that way because it was easier to get pictures. That prob has nothing to do with birth, but she said they're more normal than most moms think.

Oh really, they said it was easier? Weird...I had to go for soooo many ultrasounds and they kept saying the issue was having an anterior placenta, and they couldn't see clear enough. Of course I'm also over-weight, so that added to it too I'm betting, but they never did get to see 'everything', which makes me a bit nervous, but I get another ultrasound at 32 weeks, I am praying they can see better then!

They got all the pictures/measurements they needed at my 20 week scan, but for my 3d pictures, the placenta posed a problem because the baby was nestled in toward the placenta and blocked the good view of the face!
