Posterior placenta is at the back
Anterior placenta is at the front...
I had an anterior placenta with Indie, it's not bad but it means the baby's movements arn't felt as much
BTW i think it should be added that 1/5, 2/5, 3/5, 4/5, and 5/5 means how much of the baby is palpable and not engaged so it's the opposite, for example 4/5 means baby is high up and 1/5 means near enough fully angaged. it says on page 12 of the pregnancy notes xxxx

can anyone tell me what LOL means?? im 33+4 and had to go in to be monitored the other day due to reduced movements - everything was found to be fine but the midwife who examined me could not determine what position the baby was in.
In my notes she has put that she is laid longitudial and presentation is cephalic then under position she has put LOL. i have no idea what this means??

If 5 finger widths of your baby's head is felt, it is written as 5/5 palpable or 'unengaged'.
If 4 finger widths of your baby's head is felt, it is written as '4/5' palpable or 1/5 engaged.
If 3 finger widths of your baby's head is felt, it is written as '3/5' palpable or 2/5 engaged.
If 2 finger widths of your baby's head is felt, it is written as '2/5' palpable or 3/5 engaged.
If 1 finger width of your baby's head is felt, it is written as '1/5' palpable or 4/5 engaged.
If your baby's head cannot be felt it is written as 'fully engaged' or 'not palpable'.
