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...

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...

Yes: 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.

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?

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?

Bleeding risk is low: The edge of your placenta is likely to remain away from the internal os of your cervix and possibly to "move up" as your pregnancy progresses. Therefore the possibility of placental site bleeding seems very low. ...Read more

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.

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

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

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

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

What does placenta anterior encoarching on lower segment means? I am 5 months pregnant

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

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
