Does Placental Abruption 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

As a significant cause of third-trimester bleeding, it is associated with fetal and maternal morbidity and mortality.

Yes: High blood pressure is associated with abruption. So report immediately to your OB the following symptoms: onset of frequent, strong contractions, very firm uterus that does not feel like it relaxes, and/or dark or bright red bleeding from the separation of placenta from uterine wall (coming through vagina). Because this can be an OB emergency, patients at risk may already be under surveillance. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Is it normal to be pregnant again after 6 months cs (bikini incision ) cause I had complete placental abruption at 31 weeks and I lost my baby ?
Not optimal plan.: A short inter-pregnancy interval is never advisable. You are now at risk for recurrent abruption, repeat cesarean section, preterm labor, uterine rupture, poor fetal growth, anemia and placenta accreta. Seek mfm care asap, take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily and avoid smoking/cocaine. Best of luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Possibly: I would recommend nothing heavier that 10 pounds at this point, but i would also suggest you speak to your OB about their specific recommendations for not only how much you should lift/carry, but also any other restrictions on your activities at this point in the pregnancy. Congratulations! ...Read more
I have pots, and lost my baby to placental abruption (which they think caused the pots) should I not try again? Better to adopt? Once pots gets better
POT[t]S: Stands for postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome and is caused by abnormal activity of the autonomic (automatic) nervous system (ans). I think that the "abruptio" and the pots are from a common cause---- compromised body chemistrry, in the control mechanisms of the ANS and the normal function of pregnancy. My guess is that it is due to lousy diet that provides the energy for cellularfunction. ...Read more

Great question!: Not known. Placenta is the major producer of Progesterone in pregnancy, and Progesterone serves to keep the uterus quiet as the fetus grows. It is possible that perturbations in the uteroplacental interface (eg placental infarction) could lead to both Progesterone decline and increased risk for abruption. No study has addressed this to date; abruption remains an impossible complication to predict. ...Read more
