  • I think baby moved at around 18 weeks Aysha
  • I have an anterior placenta and I’m 23 weeks.  I only started feeling baby at 20 weeks. Although now I feel her strong all the time now Sonia
  • I am 7 months prgnant now and this baby is super active I feel EVERYTHING so don’t worry soon you will start feeling more . I was also worried since the doctor said I would not be able to feel or see movements like previous pregnancy. This second baby is moving even more than my first ever since I was 5 months Geraleen
  • It was 16 weeks when I first felt bub move Leisa
  • My 3rd baby was my first anterior placenta, it was around 20wks and I got panicky at the end when movements are harder to feel cause they have less room.  I couldn’t feel her at all for a few days and went to the hospital Brook
  • First felt movement at 23 weeks (ftm) Lisa
  • Around 25 weeks, and there was no regular pattern either Ina
  • When I was pregnant with my son my placenta was at the front. I hardly ever felt him unless I actually laid down on my side and felt it with my hand. My daughters was at the back and I ALWAYS felt her. It can be very stressful not being able to feel them all the time but just try not to worry. Bethany
  • At 22 weeks- it was my 2nd bub (1st bub I felt at 16 weeks) Pip
  • About 19 weeks Pru
  • I didn’t know for certain until around the 16 week mark? I felt my first pretty early on so was surprised I didn’t feel my second till much later but was told I had an anterior placenta this time around. Also only felt movements every now & then, could go days without feeling kicks. Once baby got bigger could feel more kicks more often & now it’s constant! Chantelle
  • No strong kicks until around 20 weeks Danielle
  • I had 2 anterior placenta pregnancies super annoying cause sometimes movements were difficult to feel I just got use to what was the norm but please go get checked if movements are reduced significantly its not worth the risk xx Natasha
  • I had an anterior placenta and only felt the baby move twice the entire pregnancy Toni
  • With my 3rd bubs didn’t feel her move til very late. Being my 3rd pregnancy expected it to be much earlier. Due to other issues I had ultrasounds every week so new bubs was kicking around. Just couldn’t feel it due to placenta placement Amanda
  • I had an anterior placenta with both my pregnancies.  I felt movement from 19/20 weeks with number 1 and about 18 weeks with no 2. I felt daily movement with both. I found I saw/felt more movement in the middle of my belly with no 1 but 2 have stronger kicks and hits towards my groin and ribs. Both were born naturally (some anterior placentas are low lying and can mean you need a csection) my 1st was low but further enough away that I could deliver no 2 was up higher hence less front movement.

    I have had two anterior placentas. 1st pregnancy probably wasn’t until 17-18 weeks and with my 2nd around 14-15 weeks
