Anterior Placenta

Mamas who have had this, what was your experience re: feeling movement? I am 21 weeks pregnant and have felt little movements sporadically from about 15-16 weeks on. They still seem pretty sporadic. When can I expect to feel stronger movements? Or will it always feel a little weird during this pregnancy? I know it is normal to not feel movement for longer or to not feel it the same but I wasn't sure if it would start to feel more normal later.

Re: Anterior Placenta

I have an anterior placenta this time - although it's anterior on my left side, then goes around on the left side, if that makes sense.
I definitely felt movement later this time, and differently - not so strongly right away. It definitely feels normal now, but I'd say it was probably 26+ weeks before Hiccup was big/strong enough that it felt the same as my other healthy babies.
Coming up to 20 weeks I could tell something was different, then the u/s nurse told us where my placenta is and it made perfect sense where/how much I was feeling movements. For those weeks, I could really tell where Hiccup was and where my placenta was.

Re: Anterior Placenta

It was 23wks + for me. Closer to 27wks before I felt consistent, strong movement.

I also have an anterior placenta and it was 20ish weeks before I felt anything. I'm 28 weeks now and am finally feeling and seeing consistent movements.

Okay, good! I'm glad this will eventually get better. My DH thought I was crazy b/c the only time I really feel much is when baby is on my bladder. I feel her fluttering around here and there but I know I was feeling more consistent movement with DS by this point. We had our a/s a couple weeks ago and the tech mentioned that I had an anterior placenta. It was a relief as I knew something was different! I am glad I will eventually get that with this one too. My placenta is at the front and a bit off to the right. Hopefully in the next few weeks I will feel her normally as you all have with your kiddos. Thanks for the reassurance, mamas!!

Re: Anterior Placenta

I have an anterior placenta this time, and I didn't feel movement until around 23 weeks I think. With my other two pregnancies, I felt movement at 16 weeks and 14 weeks, so it was definitely different!!

I've had an AP with 2 of my pregnancies and I'd say 22-33 wks before I felt consistent movement.

Re: Anterior Placenta

I felt flutters around 15 weeks and then not a whole lot until about 23ish weeks. It was worrying a little! But even right up until the end of the pregnancy I never felt any movement on the right hand side or low down, like with my other two pregnancies. It was all high up and on the left hand side.

Re: Anterior Placenta

I agree with what was posted here, 23ish weeks-27weeks movement def strengthened and I felt her regularly after 25 weeks.
