Yeah, I has one. She's still kicking like a madman tho. Been able to feel her since about 16 weeks. I thought it was harder to feel with an anterior placenta? Am I just making things up? Anyone else have one? Do u feel a lot of kicks?
I has one, too! And thank you for saying has, makes me feel not alone. It's funny to me but I wonder if people think I can't speak English...
I had one with my first it was anterior and low lying, so they told me I wouldn't feel much early. They were right. I assumed when I started feeling this one around 14-15 weeks VERY strong that I didn't have one but at my last u/s I was told it was anterior. He didn't mention it being low though. Idk if that has something to do with it or if it is that this is my second and I know what to notice...

I have had an anterior placenta with my son and now with this one and honestly I think it makes more of a difference how the baby is laying! My son faced the front and was a wiggle worm I felt him around 17 weeks. This one is facing my spine and I don't fell him/her very often at all.
I had an anterior with my daughter. I could feel her kick early on but feeling her kick with my hand took awhile. It was after 22 weeks that I felt her with my hand. Her kicks were not nearly as strong as my son's or this baby though..they were kind of muffled with the anterior placement.
I had an anterior placenta with my first and it took FOREVER for me to feel him (like well after 20 weeks) and I never felt him as strongly as most do until the very end of the third tri. Maybe you are just more tuned in because this is your second?
1st was posterior started feeling at 14 weeks
2nd was anterior started feeling at 22/23 weeks was very muffled and didn't feel him from the outside much at all.
3rd I think is anterior (haven't checked yet) but higher started feeling at 13 weeks, I'm 17 weeks now, I'm feeling more intense movement but not "kicks" and cannot feel it with my hand.
My problem is labor. I'm a natural, no meds laboring mom. The back labor was horrible with #2 because he was sunny side up.
I feeling this one will too, I'm so hoping my placement will move up! To be centrally located in the uterus!!!!
