Clot In The Placenta
I have a blood clot near my placenta and am 24 weeks pregnant should I be concerned or on bedrest?
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more

See below:: A clot behind the placenta can go either way. It can turn into a miscarriage, or it can go away. The outcome is hard to predict. This bleeding is usually followed by ultrasound.

Not normal : Bleeding in pregnancy is not normal and should be evaluated and watched.

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. ...Read more
Random chance: The embryo implants on the uterine lining, and at that location the placenta starts to grow. Usually, it is on a portion of the uterus that will stretch and thin during pregnancy, and is nowhere near the internal cervical opening. However, sometimes the embryo implants very near the internal cervical opening, resulting in a low-lying placenta or even a placenta covering the opening, req. C-sec. ...Read more

Structural, function: Many problems involve abnormal location of the placenta (too low, too deep in uterine wall). Other less common ones are due to abnormal structure (eg, vessels from placenta unsupported by tissue, small or odd shape, tumors in the placenta). Some can develop in a normal placenta late in pregnancy (such as replacement of healthy tissue with fibrous tissue). Not all are detectable by ultrasound. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Never heard that...: Or a women's clinic, or midwife or doula to find support groups and reassurance. Try the hollywood birth ctr or amazing births ; beyond. Even long-distance these people are likely to offer lots of that. Close-up would be best. No doubt, the physical feelings (even when all is normal) are powerful, but most feel it is quite worth it. Remind yourself that it is the most normal thing in life. Best! ...Read more
It depends: Miscarriage, strictly speaking, is an early pregnancy loss, which is not related to a low lying placenta. Most miscarriages are related to problems with the development of the pregnancy itself. Low lying placenta is common in early pregnancy and often will move as the uterus grows. If it persists, it can cause complications later in pregnancy. A follow up ultrasound should be done at 30 weeks. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
