    I found out that I've got a high anterior placenta and think it explains why I haven't felt much movement.

    Anyone else have one? Did it affect how you felt the kicks or when they started?

    I have the same hun and think that's why I haven't felt loads of movement. My SIL's placenta is positioned at the back so she's felt really strong kicks for quite a while. Won't be long until we're feeling the little ones boot us :) xxx

    Thanks all - its just frustrating as now morning sickness has gone - I was planning on relying on feeling movement to let me know all was well. Hopefully we'll just be a few weeks behind, with feeling kicks

    I have an anterior placenta and it definately effects how much movement I feel. Some tiimes she proper kicks and you can feel it on the outside and other times it feels so far away I wonder if I imagined it. Alot of the time I just feel a popping kind of sensation. Hopefully in the next few weeks I should start feeling more, I'm hoping!

    I was told i've got that too but i'm still feeling a lot of kicking all over the place, although it's mostly quite low, the high kicks are kind of dull thuds. I was really surprised when the sonographer told me that because of the amount of kicking i've felt. Maybe mine is really high?

    Have a look on your notes from your scan, Loula. It should say on there. Mine is complete opposite, very low and posterior! x

    I'm same as Babyelmo - been feeling flutterings and now firmer feelings for a while now. But reports say I am anterior - even though baby's heartbeat is easy to find. Guessing mine must only be half anterior then.

    Sure those big kicks will be coming to all of you soon!

    I have an anterior placenta too, i dont feel much and im 26+2, there are days where i can go from feeling little flutters to feeling nothing at all. The sonographer told me as long as its not low lying and anterior it shouldn't cause any problems :)..It just makes it a bit trickier to feel them moving around :)
