Now that our little one is getting bigger, I’m finding so much comfort from being able to feel him kick on a regular basis. Having an anterior placenta made it very difficult to feel much movement for the first 18 weeks or so. I have a uterus that is tipped slightly forward on the top, which means not only do doctors have to go (what feels like) up to their elbows to check my cervix (ouch!), but that I also tend to feel movement very early on in my pregnancies. Not having that to reassure me this time around was causing me to feel very anxious at the beginning.
But now that he is growing stronger, I can not only feel but see him kicking several times per day.
