Hi I am a sahm of a 2 y/o dd, and I am 24 weeks with #2. I love this site! Going with a midwife assisted home birth this time, which is a stark co trast from the hospital induction turned emergency c/s of #1. I have been wondering lately if there are signs that can tell you where your placenta may be? Less baby movement, baby position, etc? It's just a curiosity. I dont intend to get any u/s this time around, but dd's was high in the back. Thanks!

I don't feel there is a definitive way without training but most women have a feeling imho... I have delivered six kids and been pregnant ten times... I knew about where they were in all but one of my six babies and the sixth it may have been because we lost her before she got bigger...


In the ones where my sons were felt much later the placenta was in the front felt earlier the placenta was in the back, in ones where I had lots of spotting or spotted after intercourse I had a low lying placenta including placenta previa... So while it's not an exact science it can give you tips to just help you pinpoint it.
