I believe 100% in my body's ability to give birth but....
I have a anterior placenta, I had 1 with my first too, I hardly felt him move, I feel this baby move more & more everyday, my 22 week ultrasound showed him laying transverse then heads up (so he's switching positions alot)
I'm not Necessarily worried he won't go heads down I'm worried this increase in movement could mean the placenta is moving lower toward my uterine scar & I'm scared I'm gonna end up with placenta previa or placenta. Accreta.
Am I being a worry wort or anyone have some words of wisdom
Not to worry. I've had 9 HBAC, 8 of those UC's. My last was an anterior placenta, my first, that I know and all was just fine.

Anterior just means it is at the front- not at the bottom. As the uterus grows the placenta is usually drawn upwards with it. If it was far away from the cervix/scar before it will not be closer now. It doesn't 'move' as it is firmly attached to the uterus.
