I wanted to ask if anyone has been diagnosed with anterior placenta. I am almost 19 weeks pg with a wonderful little girl, who will be named Katherine Sue (Katie). I went for a gender determination sono at 16 1/2 weeks, because I was too impatient to wait for 20 week anatomy scan to find out. I had thought that week that I had been feeling movement, it was like a tapping. It happened for a few consecutive days, but then it stopped.
When I had my 3d/4d sono, she told me that I have anterior placenta, which means my placenta is up front instead of the normal behind the baby. This is not a problem for me or the baby unless the placenta ends up too low and covers part of the cervix. This would mean that I have to have a C-section. The sono tech stated that what I had felt that week was probably gas moving through placenta, not the baby moving.
If that is the case, then I have not felt the baby move as of yet. I have had nothing like that feeling I did have since that time. I had my regular OB appointment yesterday and my OB called me "BORING", which is exactly what they want. He asked me if I felt any flutters or anything, but I can't say that I have.
I was just wondering if anyone else had been diagnosed with this, and if so, when did you start feeling the baby move. From much research (isn't the internet wonderful), I know that an anterior placenta means you usually feel the baby move later than other woman, but I wondered when I might start feeling my little girl move. I also know that it is hearter to get the heartbeat through the doppler with anterior placenta. This was accurate at my previous OB appt, where the nurse and doctor tried, and finally I had to have sonogram, because they couldnt' find it. With the sono, we saw it and it was nice and strong. At yesterday's appointment, it took a few minutes, but we got it and it was nice and strong.
I would appreciate any information anyone can give.
