I am so appreciative of the feedback everyone shares here ! so...I am coming back for some more :D
This is my fourth baby, but I have had the privilge of having everything I thought I knew about my own pregnancies challenged :D This pregnancy has just been so much different than what I have grown accustomed to, and therefore prepared myself for, with my first three.
Early on, I had troub feeling this baby like I had my others, and I wondered if just maybe, it was a front-lying placenta. Sure enough, at our anatomy scan, I discovered that was indeed the case, and what a nice thing not just to soothe a concern but get medical affirmation of your intuition about your body :)
Since finding this, baby has been finding ways to make him/herself felt more clearly, but I have noticed how much different it feels from my other babies. I cannot feel this baby's position like I could the others- I feel like I have this BIG empty dome of a belly, and I can just feel baby jabbing toward the front from somewhere near my spine. It is an akward feeling when I have been accustomed to being able to discern my babies' positions. I know that at this point in the pregnancy, baby is likely to be changing positions anyway, but having a history of malpresentation, I like being able to tell what is going on in there :D
I couldn't find much, but I wondered if anyone else has had experience with an anterior placenta and it making it more difficult to discern fetal position...or might it just be another quirk with this baby that has nothing to do with that placenta ?
