I found out at my last ultrasound that I have an anterior placenta. I'm sort of bummed, as this means waiting longer to feel little one move. Doc also said the placenta was pretty low, but seemed to stop before my cervix.

If you do have or have had an anterior placenta, how long did you have to wait to feel movement? Was it harder for others to feel movement from the outside as well? Any other concerns I should have? Should I worry about the low placenta at all? Is there a chance it could grow over my cervix?

i had an anterior placenta with my first and i felt movement around 16/17 weeks. with this one i have a posterior placenta and i felt movement starting around 12, almost 13 weeks. as for others feeling movement, that did take awhile...i think probably beginning in the 3rd trimester. i am also overweight so that didn't help. don't worry though, you will feel those little kicks, punches, and rolls very soon!

I don't know if that is what they called it(I'm horrible with medical terms but getting better) but with DD the Dr. Said because the placement of things inside I wouldn't feel baby kick until later than normal so not to be alarmed. But boy the first time I felt it the kick was so hard it shook my whole stomach. I think I was around 21-22 weeks.

I had anterior placenta with one of mine, was my 5th and I don't remember exactly when I felt movement but pretty sure it was around or somewhat before 20 weeks.

Your placenta will always tend to grow upward as that's the direction your uterus is heading. A low-lying placenta, even one partially covering the cervix early on will tend to move up and out of the way.

With my second, it took a little longer for OTHER people to be able to feel the baby move, but I still got flutters and stuff and knew what was going on. I used to get annoyed that I could feel it but DH couldn't.

Thanks, ladies. From what I keep reading, it just seems like I'll have to wait and see. As long as this little one is okay in there, though, I'm good.

The Dr said I have an anterior placenta and that was why she couldn't find the heartbeat. Even though I heard it the night before on my doppler & almost every day since then. So, I dunno? I also read it could take longer to feel baby, but I hope not! I also read something that it can move amd not be anterior anymore? But I don't know if that's true. I've been feeling some weird things today and I'm mot sure if it's me or could be baby moving around. It may be too early for me to feel it, but who knows! I hope we both get lucky and feel baby soon!!

I have one now and had one with my first. I didn't feel her move until 22wks. This one, I feel move but it's more subtle and lower instead of belly kicks. I'm sure as puppet grows, I'll feel more.

I had an appointment today, and was hoping to hear the heartbeat to ease my mind, but dangit if we didn't get a blizzard!!! lol. Friday though...Friday...
