I am 23 weeks and I'm pretty sure my midwife has declared that my placenta is quite far back....I also have a tilted womb. Does this explain why my baby's movements are quite faint? I must admit my BMI is 36 and I had a little bit of a tummy to start with. My husband has placed his hand on my stomach and he can feel kicks but most of the time, when I feel them, they are like small air bubbles popping then an occasional stomp on my bladder. It's just that my friend who is 2 weeks behind me can feel her baby moving and turning, wriggling and had the oh so common "fluttering" movement which I have never had. Needless to say she is very petite. Is this why??
