If you had an anterior placenta with 2nd (or 3rd or 4th) pregnancy, when did you start feeling baby move? With DS1 I had an anterior placenta and felt him right at 20 weeks. With DS2, my placenta was posterior and I felt him at 14/15 weeks. This pregnancy I have an anterior placenta again, so wondering if it will be late like 20 weeks again? (DS3, I had a posterior placenta, but never felt him move much by 18 weeks except during ultrasound, but he had a very poor fetal prognosis and it turns out he couldn't really move.)

DS1 - posterior. Felt him around 17 weeks. (He was also huge)
DS2 - anterior. Felt him around 22 weeks. (He was average sized)
DD1 - I would have bet you I had anterior again, because I wasn't feeling her. Turns out it's somewhere on top (fundal), but the doctor said it could have started out anterior and moved up. Anyway, I started feeling her around 19 weeks, then regular movement around 21 weeks. (she's more petite than my other two, though in the average range)

18+4 and haven't felt anything yet... anterior placenta was confirmed at my ultrasound last week. Also had one with my daughter and I didn't feel her until 20 weeks at the earliest.

I had anterior placenta with both my successful pregnancies and didn't feel movement until 19-20 weeks either time.

With my first two I had prosterior and felt lo1 at 18 weeks and lo2 at 16 weeks. With this pregnancy I have an anterior placenta so I was expecting to not feel movement for a while but I've been feeling it since 13/14 weeks. In the past few weeks (17 weeks today) movements have been pretty strong.

I've had anterior placentas both times that got far enough along to feel movement--with lo1, I didn't feel her at all until 18 weeks. With this pregnancy, I felt a few flutters early on, like 12 weeks, but nothing regular until maybe 16 weeks or so.

Both have been anterior and both 21ish weeks before really kicks that for certain were kicks and consistent. 2nd pregnancy I felt flutters around 14-15 weeks but small and nothing consistent.
