Where is yours??
Level II u/s last Tues -- and just as I suspected -- I have my first anterior placenta!
I *KNEW IT*!! I was feeling baby move early on... then NOTHING. I was starting to think probably because as my uterus grew, the placenta grew- and moved up - right along with it, blocking all those first little movements.
Then - over the past few weeks, it could be days and days and no movement. Then when I do feel something it is usually only in one spot -- way down, very low, and to the left. Tiny little flicks only. Even at 19 weeks!
So! My best guess was -- anterior placenta, with placement being right in the center, mid-way between my bellybutton and pubic bone, PLUS baby likes to hang out mostly in head up, facing backwards position.
U/s showed that I was correct on all accounts!
I am sorta feeling ripped off LOL!! Most times I totally forget I am even pregnant! I am praying that as the baby continues to grow- bigger and stronger - I will get to enjoy more movement. Thank God this is my 4th baby - as if it was my 1st or 2nd I cannot imagine how anxious going days and days of feeling no movement would make me!
One possible pro of this -- I am letting myself believe... ;) .... is that with all of my previous births I had the most horrendous back labor. With this placenta being anterior - I am letting myself believe that this time I will have no back labor!!!! (I can INTEND can't I??? lol ;)
