Love Island star Dani Dyer, who's pregnant with her first child, has revealed she's started to feel her baby move at 19-weeks.

The 24-year old had worried that she wouldn't feel her baby move after discovering she has an anterior placenta.

Most women first feel their baby move somewhere between 16 and 24 weeks of pregnancy. It's common for anterior placenta mums to feel first movements later than those with a placenta elsewhere. An anterior placenta simply means the placenta is attached to the front wall of the uterus and is a completely normal place for it to implant and develop.

The reality star took to Instagram on Sunday to explain that she'd started to feel movement and gushed it was 'so lovely' to feel her little one moving around.

Like many mums, she'd initially assumed that the sensations were caused by wind, only realising she was being kicked during a visit to her midwife.

Dani said: 'The other day I was standing by the sink and I felt this feeling in my belly. I thought "It’s probably wind Dan, stop overthinking".. but maybe it was the baby!

'Anyway, I go and see this lovely lady called Becky in Loughton who I love and adore and she’s a midwife. I go see her once a week in between my scans, she checks my blood pressure and stuff like that and the baby’s heartbeat.

'And yesterday there was a tiny kick and she went "did you feel that Dan?" So I have been feeling the baby! 

'And it's so lovely because at my last scan they told me I had an anterior placenta

'It's basically my placenta is at the front and cushions the baby so I might not be able to feel the kicks and movements so much... but I thought so long as the baby’s healthy stop stressing about that.'

Dani also wrote on her post that it would be lovely if her partner Sammy could feel their baby moving while in her tummy too. 

In July the reality star announced she was expecting her first child with boyfriend Sammy, saying:

'Little bubba can't believe you are going to be ours,' she wrote, 'Me and Sammy are so excited to start this next chapter in our lives, feel so lucky and grateful...2021.'
