I can't remember the technical term for this, but my Sonographer just referred to placenta's that face the front to 'front lying placenta'.
Since this is my first pregnancy and I have nothing to compare it to, I was just wondering if those who have/have had front lying placenta's, did it add to the amount of time that it took for you to feel kicks on the outside? I am still feeling gas like bubbles and tiny jabs on the inside and I am certain they are baby, but I can't really be to sure when and if it's baby, only know that some times it must be.
I am 18 weeks and 6 days today, but the baby is measuring a week ahead at 19 weeks and 6 days... Surely the day that I will feel them on the outside is approaching?
Also, ladies with these front placenta's, did it make those early kicks and jabs much more subtle in the beginnings?
Yes, it cushions a lot of those early kicks. But, when baby gets bigger it was nice to have a bit of a cushion from those elbows and knees. I have had several pregnancies with an anterior placenta and I think this one is the same.

Its called an anterior placenta....I have one with this pregnancy and the last one....I have been feeling lots of movement low above my pubic bone and out the one top/side of my uterus...otherwise nowhere else in my belly...although if I'm really still, I can watch my belly button move in and out as the baby moves around...so hopfully really soon for you!!!
That's what I have and I still haven't felt anything. I'm 16 weeks, everyone is asking if I've felt the baby yet and I have to explain the reason I probably won't for awhile..... this is my first and I want to!!! Oh, well, I think it will be nice in the end though.
I have an anterior placenta as well. I just finally started feeling baby move last week, but only if i had my hand on my belly. I could feel baby rolling and kicking quite good, but if I took my hand off I couldn't feel it!
I'm just over 20 weeks now, and I have felt baby roll around a couple times as I have been sitting here paying the bills.
I'm sure you will feel it soon also. I feel mine mostly high, luckily baby is high up anyways, so I shouldn't be missing out on to much.
