    I was told by an ultrasound technician that I have an anterior placenta. What exactly is this? Is it why the baby’s heartbeat is sometimes hard to find, and why I don’t feel as much movement as other women who are 19 weeks along? Also, does my being overweight make it harder to feel the baby kicking?
