In brief: Anterior = front

Anterior is just another name for the front.
Visualize your womb as an upside down bag, with your placenta located on the front wall and the baby behind it.Location has little to do with perception of movements. Most first timers pick it up bu 20 wks, repeats do at 16-18.
