Does Placenta Previa Cause Fetal Growth Restriction
MF/placental factors: Maternal-fetal and placental etiologies can all cause fetal growth restriction. Severa fetal syndromes can lead to fgr (e.g. Down, patau, triploidy, edwards, noonan's, digeorge). Multifetal pregnancies are at increased risk for fgr; this can result in fetal demise, fetal brain injury, cerebral palsy or even normal outcomes in non-syndromic cases. Placental infarcts, hypertension, lupus: culprits. ...Read more
How often will I spot with placenta previa. I'm 17 weeks and it's been twice now- light brown spotting. I'm on light duty restriction at work.
Bleeding and Cntrxns: Previa: Placenta overlies the cervix/birth canal. Gr 1 means placenta is close, Gr 4 means it's directly overlying/blocking the baby's exit -- high chance of preterm labor & bleeding; you'd need a C/S at 36-37wks. More common in woman w/ hx of C/S & smoking. Not much you can do but wait. If dx'ed early, the uterus still grows/stretches and a placenta can migrate away even in 3rd tri.

Im 21weeks aog with placenta previa totalis how big is my chance to have my placenta in correct place?I don't want to undergo cs(utz is in my profile)
Cesarean by 36-37w.: Placenta previa can lead to preterm labor, so i would recommend prelabor (i.e. Shceuled) cesarean section by 36-37 weeks. If placenta accreta is also suspected, delivery should be by 34-35 weeks with Betamethasone administration and immediate puerperal hysterectomy without attempt at placental delivery! all this shoudl be done in a large hospital. The infant should do well regardless. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My ob says that having posterior marginal placenta previa is good news rather than it being anterior.. Is that true ?
Yes : Placenta previa is never good news, but the cesarean delivery is easier if we don't need to deliver through the placenta. An anterior placenta previa for someone with a previous cesarean section can be a very difficult delivery. You will want to recheck the placenta position closer to term if this was seen on an early sonogram. ...Read more
