Anterior placenta..bigger belly? Boog's Mama. 1 child; Little Rock, AR, United States 9064 posts

Would having an anterior placenta make your bump stand out more? Just the past couple of weeks my belly seems to have popped out a lot, like 8 months pregnant big. I'm only 24 weeks.

The people I know that had anterior placentas, they felt like it took longer to show.
But at about that time, 24ish weeks, is when I started to REALLY show each time.

I have an anterior placenta too and I'm 27 weeks. I look like I did at 35 weeks with DD (I gained 45 lbs with her an I've only gained 13 so far this time) but I don't know if there is any truth to that.

I had an anterior placenta with DD. I started showing about 17 weeks and popped at about 25 weeks. I doubt the placenta placement has anything to do with how you will show. The way your body is built has a lot to do with how you will show.

Your placenta has nothing to do with how you show. It's wear the baby is sitting, your uterus and body build.

I have anterior placenta and with my girl, I didn't even show the day before I was induced. I just looked like I had gotten fat. With this one my stomach literally just swelled out at about 8 months. My SO left for work one afternoon came home that evening and was like damn babe your pregnant! I was like yeah I've known for a while just waiting on my body to figure it out ! Lol
