I'm 23 weeks I've been bleeding last two days my placenta is detaching and my anmiotic fluid is very low. What can I do to increase anmiotic fluid?

You should seek immediate medical care with an obstetrician as you may need to be admitted and monitored in a hospital setting if you bleeding. Unfortunately, there's nothing you can do to increase amniotic fluid. The low fluid may be a result of placental insufficiency, which may happen in the setting of an abruption. ...Read more

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.

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

UTZ report at uau19 wks 5 days shows fetus in transverse position, placenta posterior grade 2, previa totalis. Will this improve? Or cs is the option

Likely to improve: Placenta previa diagnosed in second trimester most often resolves by 3rd trimester. Usually by that time, the fetus is head down and vaginal delivery is an option.
Follow closely with ultrasounds this pregnancy to help guide your decision. Unlikely but if the placenta previa persists, then a csection is needed ...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
