Expecting dc2, felt nothing, scan yesterday 20 weeks shows anterior placenta. Dd was back to back which I have heard is more likely but she was not anterior placenta and she was a real kicker. I'm desperate to feel this little one, is it just a case for waiting until splodge just gets a bit bigger for me to feel it??
Yup, you'll soon get lots more feeling round the sides and at the top of your bump as dc2 grows. You will also get more at the front too but not as strong as with a posterior placenta. Don't worry. It'll still keep you awake, make your tummy contort and have you gasping with surprise, just later and in different places.
Thank you this one is transverse like dd was (bicornate uterus) and have just been very worried at not feeling anything, at 20+ weeks was stil worried yesterday they wouldn't actually find a baby in there despite of course previous scans. Bring it on!!
I have an anterior placenta also & must admit that compared to my friends, who say 'it's like a football match going on in there', I do not feel like this. I would say that I feel little movements every now & then during the day & a few harder movements in the evening when watching telly but I certainly wouldn't say it is like a football match. I am 29 weeks now & it's only when he's positioned in the right way will I feel a proper good kick or movement....I am told this is nothing to worry about, but I can't help but worry that he's not more active by now! So I know how u feel...
I have anterior placenta with this one - like you had felt nothing at 20 weeks, then the day before my scan saw my small bump moving - loads. It was a bit like Alien
Couldn't feel a thing, and at the scan the baby was turning round all over the place and still couldn't feel it.
Over the next couple of weeks started to feel more, mainly at top and sides as previous poster said, and now at 30 weeks there's lots of movement. Still sometimes looks more dramatic than it feels, and DH / DCs haven't felt much. Try not to worry, it will just be a matter of time.
Alana39 wish I felt more like u do & we're roughly at the same week. I just have horrid pains under my right rib where little one must be pushing or something. I get some movement but not loads, I judge it on as long as I feel something everyday then all must be ok. I reckon little one might also be laying facing my back as I would have thought I would have seen some real big movements by now! I know I should be thankful, but u can't help but worry....
