My first pregnancy was normal, posterior I guess, and the second anterior. The difference was huge. I do hope you don't have an anterior placenta again so you can experience all the moving and kicking. I had never heard that a woman can be prone to it. I thought it was pretty much a matter of chance.

Not the way you describe, but the other way round: I haven't had an anterior placenta in 4 pregnancies but have one now, with my 5th. I still felt early movement (before 16 weeks). There is less movement felt from the outside there where it is, but I can still feel her feet, knees, and lie easily (since about 24 weeks.)
Didn't have it with ds1, had it with ds2, didn't with ds3.
