I don't remember if  felt mine a lot. I tend to forget things a little. This one I started to feel at 16 weeks. I have a posterior tho. IDK.

It's so hard to put into perspective in your own body.
I still don't feel like there is a big ole growing baby almost reaching 1lb inside me.
Even though I DO feel strong kicks and movement.
I also haven't seen my baby since 8w2d so maybe after my US tomorrow I'll feel more connected.

I hear ya. I have an anterior placenta as well, AND baby likes to have her back facing my front so it explains why I don't feel her often, and why I DO sometimes feel her.

This baby moves so much that it's hard to believe he isn't bigger! Every time he rolls it feels like all my organs are going with him!

Mine isn't quite that far yet, but I'm surprised I don't feel mine more often, too.

 Its hard to believe!  I don't feel baby much either but dr hasn't said anything about an anterior placenta...i even asked him today if i should be feeling him move more and he seemed to just htink it would come in the next week or two...we shall see

I have an anterior placenta too, but just these past few days I've been actually feeling movement... mostly straight down ("that's the exit but you're not ready yet!") but today I also felt him bumping up both on the inside and outside. He also now complains when I slouch or carry my toddler, I must be cramping his style :)
