So I've got an anterior placenta and I'm coming up to 16 weeks. Sure me and my mum felt baby kicks despite it being early and since haven't had any more. Could it have been a muscle spasm or baby changed position. Doctor said I wouldn't feel baby for ages due to anterior placenta.
I’ve got an anterior placenta and felt irregular flutters from 15 weeks. Would have some one day then nothing for a week. It’s only been the last few days I’ve been feeling her regularly and strongly. I’m 21 + 4
Millypad that's reassuring to know that you could go days without feeling baby again as I do worry if it was a kick/movement that everything is still okay due to it being a couple of days without anything.
It's defo normal when you first start feeling movement to have days where there is nothing, especially as they are so small at this stage. You will probably feel it when baby is in exactly the right specific position facing one way. So if they wriggle/turn/move around you won't feel them any more. As they get bigger, the movements will become more consistent and you'll be able to feel them no matter what position baby is in. But it can take a few weeks for that to happen.
28 weeks is the date they say to look for movement from.
Yeah, I'm just a bit of a worrier really. The wait between scans feels so long to me. I've no reason to suspect anything is wrong either so don't know why I'm so anxious. Not usually an anxious person but since I became pregnant that's all changed 🙈
