Baby A is lodged in my left side head down and she just kicks away constantly.Baby B is lodged into my ribs head up,she moves but not nearly as much as Baby A does.

Did anyone else have movement from one twin more then the other?

Emerson was always VERY active! Wyatt not so much.. I actually went in a couple of times for NST's because I wasn't sure that I was feeling him.

I hardly ever felt Nathan move but Gracyn was always wiggling around. I too went in to be checked a few times because I wasn't sure he was moving enough. I think its pretty common with twins.

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.

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.

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!

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!

mine were the same position and i would swear there was no movement from B, ultrasounds told a different story.
