I'm 31weeks pregnant I have an anterior placenta every time I run to the E.R they say he is fine should I worry when I don't feel him move for hours?

Do movement counts: I ask my patients to do "Fetal Movement Counts". Pick the time of day when the baby is normally active. Lie down and feel for the baby to move. You should have 10 movements in two hours. If you have 10 in 5 minutes, you are done. If after 2 hrs, you only have 9 movements, come to the hospital. If you are still not having adequate movement, in my opinion do weekly biophysical profile ultrasounds. ...Read more

Hello, what is the placenta is forming posteriorly eccentric to the right mean? That mean is it cover on cervix? Any chance complete placenta may move?

Is there anything I can do to help a placenta previa--massage, exercises, etc.?

No: There is nothing that you can do to change the location of the placenta. If it is covering the cervix, you will need to be delivered by c section. Intercourse needs to be avoided due to the risk of significant bleeding. A partial previa diagnosed early in the pregnancy may improve or resolve completely as the uterus continues to grow. A complete previa is unlikely to resolve. ...Read more

I am 4months pregnant and is said that I have a placenta posterior low lying grade 0 is there a posibility that placenta will move? What will I do?

Uterus grows: A low lying placenta at 4 months is something to monitor but not something to panic about. The placenta does not actually move but as the uterus grows the placenta will then be the normal position. It is too early in the pregnancy to be thinking about a C-section for low lying placentas. The majority of these will be resolved on later sonograms. ...Read more

Posteria placenta @9weeks- then placenta previa. @ 17 weeks? Will it move again?

Yes, possible!: 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. Follow w/ US. ...Read more

Placenta was low, in 12 weeks now it 2 inches moved upward in 16 weeks can my wife have orgasm, is it safe to have orgasm in this state?

Pregnancy and orgasm: The lie of the placenta has nothing to do with the ability to achieve orgasm. It naturally moves up the uterine wall away from the os. Your wife may get normal orgasm and it won't affect her placenta, pregnancy or her baby. ...Read more

Hi Dr. I've been told I have a low lying placenta at 36weeks! What are the chances that it will move up and can it bleed if I have sex or orgasam?

Not really..: In 36 weeks - you still have 4 weeks to go. Mostly placenta will move as baby still grown and descending down to pelvis. But av course caution! If any bleeding go to emergency immediately. Occasionally placenta previa can happen. Sex and orgasm is normal to have during pregnancy. Only if bleeding, pain, contractions strong. Go to hospital. Enjoy your special time in life w your spouse. ...Read more

Last ultrasound 33 weeks show cepheric presentation and placenta anterior uper as there any posibilty to move plecenta or the baby change postion?

Last ultrasound 33 weeks show cepheric presentation and placenta anterior uper as there any posibilty to move plecenta or the baby change postion?

Baby moving: At 33 weeks, the placenta isn't likely to move any more, it will stay anterior upper. By 33 weeks, the baby has probably settled in for the term BUT if you've given birth before, there in an increased chance that the baby can still shift around to transverse or breech. This is much less common if it's your first. ...Read more

May well move: As the uterus grows, the placenta may move with it away from the cervix which is the anchor.

Doctor says placenta is previa now at 16 weeks but might migrate. How can it move like that?

Doctor says placenta is previa now at 16 weeks but might migrate. How can it move like that?

It doesn't: As the uterus grows, it pulls the placental implantation with it. It's like placing an ink dot on a deflated balloon...Blow it up and the dot "moves" higher, stretched out of the way. A placenta previa is more common earlier on and usually not a biggie unless it's still blocking the cervical outlet after 24 weeks. Make sure you get checked after 24 weeks and tell your doc about any bleeding. ...Read more

At 24 weeks, I was told by high risk Dr that I have a low lying placenta but it's not covering the cervix. How likely will it move to the top?

Likely: The placenta has to be watched but many low lying placentas migrate up the wall of the uterus as it grows. There are some of them that will get close to the os (opening) of the uterus but most will still remain away from blocking the opening. Just be patient and follow your doctors instructions and they will keep track of the migration as your pregnancy develops. I hope this helped. ...Read more

21 weeks preg. Fell on my bottom onto grass. No bleeding, should I go to the emergency room. Anterior placenta so don't feel baby move really anyway.

Call Ob Triage...: If you weren't injured, its unlikely that your baby was hurt. If you start bleeding or cramping you should be evaluated. Most hospitals have an area on the Labor and Delivery unit called "Ob Triage" where pregnant women can go for evaluation. You might try calling the Labor and Delivery unit at your hospital and find out. Many ERs don't have a lot of experience with pregnancy issues like this. ...Read more

I had a natural birth 7 yrs ago, ob says I have placenta priva I'm 19 weeks now he says it's from scar tissues will placenta move up?

Can't say...: Not sure what scar tissue is involved, especially if your first birth was a vaginal birth. But. It is common for a low placenta to migrate out of the way prior to you reaching term. Ask for more clarification the next time you see your doctor, but otherwise, trust it to do so. ...Read more
