Panicking about fetal movement
Hi - I was 20 weeks pregnant on friday and for the first time without a doubt felt the baby move. However, I haven't felt anything since then and I am worried that something is wrong. I don't have any cramps or blood and my gynae said that I have an anterior placenta. Should I be worried and how often should I feel the baby move?? How does an anterior placenta affect my feeling movement (this is my first baby).

At 20 weeks you may only feel movement evey few days. The anterior placenta should not make much difference.
