My twins are in the same positions on the same sides as yours. I also have an anterior placenta. I felt A by 17 weeks. I didn't feel B until much later. Until recently, I could feel A all day long and could only feel B when I laid on my side and concentrated. Now I can finally feel B kicking around my right hip. I can also feel her head move since it's lodged under my ribs. Periodically I feel what must be her hands. Overall though, I still feel A a ton more. I can see B moving just as much as A when I have ultrasounds done. And she has great excels in her heart rate during my NSTs. It drives me nuts that I can't feel her as much because I want to make sure she's okay.
Thank you peimum for my siggie

I think this is very common.....I never really felt Rhys move - only when he had hiccups. If I hadn't already known I was having twins I never would have had a clue b/c I only ever felt Owen move - except of course when they had simultaneous hiccups - thats a weird feeling..

I had an anterior placenta with Alivia, so I felt Adalyn a whole lot more. I'm so glad they told me about the anterior placenta early on, otherwise I would have worried myself sick about not feeling Alivia nearly as much.
Thank you HeatherW for my beautiful, beautiful siggy!
Alyssa (baby A) was VERY active. Zander was cool and calm lol. which is funny cause they are still like that now.
Alyssa was my baby A too! lol.
I only felt Baby A moving for the longest time. I used to google about it because I was so freaked out that something was wrong with Baby B. She was always just fine though, her position just made her harder to feel. In fact all the ultrasounds I had showed her being MORE active then Baby A. Totally weird. Towards the end though (Not right at the end, because then BOTH babies slowed down a lot which was ANOTHER scary feeling) I started to feel baby B more. I think it's pretty normal in multiple pregnancies because usually one baby is more squished then the other!
Big Thank you to AlexKatieAiden Mommy for my beautiful Siggy!!
Definitely a lot of factors go into feeling baby movement. Lately I've been feeling both babies move a lot, but a couple of weeks ago, I definitely felt Baby A more than Baby B -- I think it their case, it had a lot to do with how they were positioned.... Baby A had her feet on my ribs, so I felt every little wiggle.

Yes, I would usually feel one more than the other. However, still do the kick counts. If you aren't feeling enough of them, just go in. At 35 weeks I told my OB I wasn't feeling Maya as much, and he said I need to make sure I do the kick counts b/c movement does not actually slow down the later you get in pregnancy- even though everyone says it does. If you ever feel something is not quite right, just go in. Better safe!
