My three previous pregnancies have had posterior placentas. My fourth preg has an anterior placenta. I cant believe how different the baby movement is with an anterior placenta. Usually, when I start feeling baby move, I feel it at least daily. With this one, Im feeling it maybe a few times a week. And if I didnt know what I ws looking for, at twice a week, I would never suspect it was baby!
Yeah, I was disappointed last time (anterior) that I didn't even begin to feel the first movements until ~20 weeks. I THINK I've been feeling this one since ~13 weeks. I was wondering if I might be post. this time.<br><br>
I don't know how you guys already know what position your placenta is in. My OB told me they couldn't tell anything till the mid-term u/s (I had an early one, too)
Well I had one at 8 weeks too, and the OB didn't say anything about where the placenta was. Maybe 8 weeks is too early to tell, or maybe OB's just aren't trained to determine it as early as ultrasound specialists (they have to see exactly where the placenta is because the doctor puts a needle in the placenta for the CVS procedure).
I have an anterior placenta this time... saw it on an ultrasound at 14 weeks. When I was in the hospital earlier this week to get my cerclage they had a hard time finding the heartbeat with a doppler b/c the placenta was right there.<br><br>
Other than not feeling as much movement, is there anything to worry about having an anterior placenta?
