Feeling Baby Move "Late"? user banned
4th May '13

I've heard that as a general rule, whenever you feel your baby move in your first pregnancy, you can recognize the movements earlier in subsequent pregnancies.



Has this been true for any of you? Let me know the weeks you felt flutters for each of your babies, please! :D

Earlier with my second. About 15 weeks?
Can't say with my third because I had an anterior placenta, so I didn't feel her until about 25 weeks!!

Around 20 weeks with baby one, around 16 weeks with baby 2, with baby 3 at 11 weeks, but that was only once and then nothing til about 16 weeks, with baby 4 it was around 16 weeks I believe and the same with this baby.

first one felt at 16 weeks. Second at 19-20 weeks. Found out the reason I couldn't feel her until then is I had an anterior placenta. It was acting as a cushion between baby and the front side of my tummy.



& just to explain an anterior placenta is when the placenta is facing forward it is basically right on the front of your stomach on the inside VS being towards your back

I doubt anyone would ask that...it's common pregnancy knowledge if you're internet savvy enough to be here. Just saying.

I had an anterior placenta, it was near impossible to feel her at all. Scary indeed. But I could see her butt roll and feel her hiccups.

funny cuz other times I post it there are always at least a couple ppl who either reply in the post or PM me asking what it is and do I think they have it so now when I mention it I just give the info straight off. I wasn't being rude or anything but eh.
