I had several large blood clots in my placenta after delivering my 4th. I am pregnant again and am sore under my ribs like last time. Am I at risk?

I had several large blood clots in my placenta after delivering my 4th. I am pregnant again and am sore under my ribs like last time. Am I at risk?

Not related: Your rib pain and blood clots in your last placenta are unrelated. Placental bleeding is always a possibility, but since you had 3 others with no problems, I would believe that you are at no more risk with this pregnancy. Check with your OB in case there is other info that that he may know about which would change your risk.

Placenta 3.8cm from os. Passed 5mm blood clot. OBYGn says not placenta issue as it is not close to os. Do you agree? Thinks it's cervix

Placenta 3.8cm from os. Passed 5mm blood clot. OBYGn says not placenta issue as it is not close to os. Do you agree? Thinks it's cervix

Low Lying Placenta: Depending upon where you are in your pregnancy it most likely is not associated with the placenta. The cervix and pregnancy is very friable and may have occasional bleeding which is minimal in nature. This type of bleeding is usually painless. The placenta being 3.8 cm from the cervix is not unusual. If you have bright red vaginal bleeding that does not subside then see your physician or contact them immediately. Hope this helps.

If you have a low lying placenta while pregnant are blood clots normal?

If you have a low lying placenta while pregnant are blood clots normal?

Not normal: Bleeding in pregnancy is not normal and should be evaluated and watched. A low-lying placenta often moves towards the upper uterus as the pregnancy advances, to where there is a better blood supply. As it does, the edge or the placenta might separate and bleed. It it usually ok, but needs to be watched

7wk pregnant went to ER bleeding hermmeroage under placenta baby ok today passing blood clots should I be worried dr apt tomorrow?

Threatened: Bleeding in pregnancy is called a threatened miscarriage. It is common occurring in almost 1/2 of early pregnancies. Most do fine but unfortunately some will miscarry. It is a good sign the baby was alive on the sonogram. These are hard because there is not anything anyone can do but wait. I wish you the best.
