Anterior High Placenta
I am on my 20weeks the result of ultrasound is anterior, high-lying grade 1 placenta what does it means? Thanks.
Biparietal diameter of 2.4cm. Fetal heart is 154b/min. Placenta is anterior. High-lying. Is it normal for 14weeks and 1 day pregnancy.? thank you...
I get 13.3 weeks for 2.4 cm BPD (see image). This is normal.
The location of the placenta is only a concern if it covers the cervical opening. Your OB would want to know that it is anterior if a C-section is needed so he should be careful at the time of operation.
The heart rate is normal.

I'm O+, my husband is AB+. What's the likelihood of our baby having neonatal anemia? High risk pregnancy w/ maternal anemia and planned c-section cutting through anterior placenta previa.
Possible: There is some possibility of an A/O or B/O reaction with jaundice and hemolytic disease but that part of this is usually minor and easy to manage. An OB with quick hands can limit the other issue. I would try to relax and figure out what your life will be like with 3 kids running around. ...Read more
If placenta is 3.4cm from os at 28w can the formation of lower segment and stretching of isthmus cause bleeding or is it high enough not to cause it?
See below.: Fundal means at the top of your uterus closest to your head. Anterior means in the front part of your uterus closest to your belly button. Well away from your internal os means that the placenta is not covering the "exit" from your uterus down by your vagina. This is a very safe placental placement. ...Read more
Need expert advice. After my 32wk scan my midwife has written that my placenta is 'post high' in my notescan anyone tell me what this means?
Position: Evaluating the placenta location on an OB ultrasound is important to find the location and note whether it is approaching or covering the cervix and route the baby will exit the uterus on delivery. 'post high' likely is shorthand for posterior and high ie up by the top of the uterus away from the cervix, though you should confirm that with your doc. ...Read more
US Naming System. ..: Study: http://www. Learningradiology. Com/notes/gunotes/placentapage. Htm, anterior means towards front, closer to the abdomen than back.

What is predominant portion of the placenta is anterior fundal with a left lateral wrap posteriorly?
What did u doc say??: Your OB doc should explain that to u just like I explain all OB ultrasound findings to my OB pts, it menas that most of the placenta is anterior covering the front top part of the endometrium and part of it goes to the back where it usually is, no need to worry, unless the placenta is over the opening (yours is not) or if it is low anterior and u have had a previous csection cause it could stick. ...Read more
What is anterior low lying placenta means in usg scan? 4th running for me. Is it any problem my baby growth. Please suggest.
Low-lying placenta: A low-lying placenta is when the placenta has implanted near the cervix but not over it as in a placenta previa. We treat the low-lying placenta with pelvic rest and decreased activities like no heavy lifting or strenuous exercise. They generally resolve on their own. They have no effect on the growth of the baby. ...Read more
Hi, 14th week running for me. Today I went to scan. They mentioned - anterior low lying placenta. Is it problem to my unbron baby. Please sugges?
Placental location: An anterior low lying placenta is a possible cause of bleeding if running at this stage of pregnancy. It is unlikely to cause a serious problem for your baby, however. Usually the low lying placenta will be located higher up as the uterus grows, and will not be a problem for delivery. Another sonogram in a month may show it to be in a more normal position. ...Read more
Marginal previa: A marginal previa or a low lying placenta is usually diagnosed by ultrasound. Early in a pregnancy ultrasound can over diagnose the condition. Risk will depend upon whether you have had any bleeding with the diagnosis. A 28 week ultrasound is usually recommended to better visualize where the placenta actually is. ...Read more

Are the chances high of a reoccurant placenta abruption after having one at 32 weeks which resulted in stillbirth? Dr's have said it looked like a fluk
Recurrence rate: The most recent literature is putting recurrence rate between 5-15%. The risk is even higher if the initial abruption was considered to be severe. When the abruption is severe enough to kill the fetus, as in your case, there is a 7% incidence of the same outcome in a future pregnancy, unfortunately. There aren't any studies that demonstrate interventions lower the risk. I wish you the best. ...Read more
Not to worry: This is a minor detail of an ultrasound report and only has relevance for an obstetrician who might be doing a cesarean section. A c-section incision is made through the lower uterine segment and so knowing this provides a caution to the surgeon when s/he operates. Generally in pregnancy, as the uterus and baby grow, a placenta tends to move back from this position so I doubt it will be important ...Read more
I just had my ultrasound at 16 wiks 3 days and it says anterior placenta grade 1 pls. Explain further?
I just had my ultrasound at 17weeks and it says I have anterior low lying placenta grade 1. How can may placenta to normal position??
Wait till 28 weeks: Whether the placenta will obstruct the internal opening of the neck (cervix) of the uterus can best be determined after 28 weeks of gestation. By then, most "low lying" placentas have resolved on their own. In the meantime, caution with intercourse may be prudent to avoid anxiety and stressfrom vaginal bleeding. ...Read more
