This is my 4th child and aside from my first child this is the only child that I haven't felt move all the time, I can feel her kind of "tumble" or flutter ever so often but when I had my ultrasound last week she was moving all over the place and I couldn't feel a thing, and thats not been the case with my middle son and my 3 year old daughter. Tech said that the padding from the placenta is cushioning the kicks and jabs. was wondering if anyone else is experiancing the same thing?

I haven't had my 20 week ultrasound, but I am starting to suspect that my placenta must be anterior as well. I can feel movement if I am sitting or laying down sometimes, but that is it. This is baby #5 for me so I definitely know what to look for as far as movement is concerned. My ultrasound was supposed to be this week, but because of a scheduled change at work, I don't go until the 14th now. I guess as long as we are feeling some movement, things are ok.

Yup! This is baby number four for me as well and by the time I was 16 weeks I KNEW something was different.. They checked at my 18 week apt and it was anterior.. The movement I do feel feels muted... Like muffled movement.. It's very different than my first 3!!!

Yep #3 for me and I have anterior placenta for the first time as well. I only feel the baby down low or off to the side on occasion. It's sporadic and I can go a day or so with little no feeling of movement. It sucks bc I was feeling my other 2 like crazy between 19-21 weeks.

I have it too. I think the movements I feel are more subtle than this point in my first pregnancy. If this means the stronger movements the last month or two are also cushioned, then I'm happy!

I was told at my 20 week u/s that I have an anterior placenta, but I find it hard to believe. (This was the head tech at my OB office, she's been there forever, she's very experience, so I'm sure she's right. lol) I felt movements early, feel them every day now, and they're pretty strong. Not SUPER strong, but more than flutters. Usually they are very low though.

I'm not feeling him move much either. At my 20 week scan they didn't say anything about an anterior placenta, but want me to come back at 26 weeks to see if the placenta has moved any.

If they want you to come back to see if its moved than that means your placenta is her low and may be what's called placenta previa... Covering your cervix some or all the way... It usually does move, so don't worry about it

Yes, I had one with DD too. I will feel him a little but for DH to feel him at all has only happened once and it's always super low.

I have an anterior placenta and experiencing the same thing. I can feel very few movements yet I know she or he is having a ball in there. I'm not too worried. So as long as she's alive and well, I can manage not feeling the precious kicks. I believe around third trimester they will be a lot stronger.

I have an anterior placenta this time. I thought this might have been the case as I didn't feel as many movements as early as the other 3. Feeling bub move now though! Still not super regular movements but I'm assuming the placenta is to blame for that.

I have an anterior placenta this time as well. I have been feeling the baby move more lately then I was. It definitely takes longer with an anterior placenta. Last pregnancy it was 22 weeks or so that I started feeling the baby so this one is definitely been sooner.
