Are the chances high of a reoccurant placenta abruption after having one at 32 weeks which resulted in stillbirth? Dr's have said it looked like a fluk

Are the chances high of a reoccurant placenta abruption after having one at 32 weeks which resulted in stillbirth? Dr's have said it looked like a fluk

Recurrence rate: The most recent literature is putting recurrence rate between 5-15%. The risk is even higher if the initial abruption was considered to be severe. When the abruption is severe enough to kill the fetus, as in your case, there is a 7% incidence of the same outcome in a future pregnancy, unfortunately. There aren't any studies that demonstrate interventions lower the risk. I wish you the best. ...Read more

I just had my ultrasound at 17weeks and it says I have anterior low lying placenta grade 1. How can may placenta to normal position??

Wait till 28 weeks: Whether the placenta will obstruct the internal opening of the neck (cervix) of the uterus can best be determined after 28 weeks of gestation. By then, most "low lying" placentas have resolved on their own. In the meantime, caution with intercourse may be prudent to avoid anxiety and stressfrom vaginal bleeding. ...Read more

Is having a marginal previa/low-lying placenta considered high risk?

Marginal previa: A marginal previa or a low lying placenta is usually diagnosed by ultrasound. Early in a pregnancy ultrasound can over diagnose the condition. Risk will depend upon whether you have had any bleeding with the diagnosis. A 28 week ultrasound is usually recommended to better visualize where the placenta actually is. ...Read more

If a placenta was low lying during one pregnancy does it mean it will be low lying again for the next?

If a placenta was low lying during one pregnancy does it mean it will be low lying again for the next?

No.: Placentation is not predictable and does not correlate with prior pregnancies, with the exception of placenta previa +/- accreta, which tends to recur. Your 20 week sonogram will establish placentation with great accuracy. Good luck! ...Read more

Biparietal diameter of 2.4cm. Fetal heart is 154b/min. Placenta is anterior. High-lying. Is it normal for 14weeks and 1 day pregnancy.? thank you...

Biparietal diameter of 2.4cm. Fetal heart is 154b/min. Placenta is anterior. High-lying. Is it normal for 14weeks and 1 day pregnancy.? thank you...

Yes: I get 13.3 weeks for 2.4 cm BPD (see image). This is normal.

The location of the placenta is only a concern if it covers the cervical opening. Your OB would want to know that it is anterior if a C-section is needed so he should be careful at the time of operation.

The heart rate is normal.

Good day. I'm ony 36 weeks and 6 days, what does LATERAL PLACENTA WITH POSTERIOR COMPONENT, Grade 3, high lying means?

U/S findings: The physical location of your placenta inside your uterus. It is lateral (towards one side, left or right); on the posterior (back, nearer your spinal column, as opposed to your abdomen); Grade 3 high lying (??). The good thing is that the placenta is not covering the cervical opening (or Os). You should be talking to your OB about these things! Talk with him/her if you don't understand! ...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

Is it safe to fly if diagnosed with low lying placenta if one has had cramping and mild spotting in second trimester (15 weeks)?

Is it safe to fly if diagnosed with low lying placenta if one has had cramping and mild spotting in second trimester (15 weeks)?

It is safe: To fly up until 35 completed weeks. I'm not sure if it's wise unless u talk to your doc. What if you start bleeding badly on the plane or out of town? Guage it with your doc but there is nothing about flying that will make it worse. ...Read more

33+3wks pregnant. Baby Breech oblique longitudinal. Placenta low lying 2cm. Risks? Chances of c-section high? Prem labor chances?

33+ wks with breech: With a breech presentation, your ob provider could turn the fetus into a vertex, making the likelihood of a vaginal delivery increase. Most would choose to elect induction after "version" of the fetus to vertex at about 39 weeks of pregnancy. Low lying placenta does not affect potential for vaginal delivery. If the fetus is not converted to a "head down" position, a C/S is likely the safest. ...Read more

My high risk Dr. Said I have a low lying placenta, that I should be on pelvic rest, no heavy lifting. I'm 24 weeks pregnant. How likely will the placenta not move to the top by the delivery date? What is max weight I can lift? Ok to walk 30 min/day?

I believe you're: Referring to placenta previa where the placenta implants around the opening of the uterus (cervix). Generally, limit on weights is whatever you can lift using arm and shoulder muscles only. (5-10# +/-. Walking is probably safe, but check with your OB. Often the placenta migrates away from the cervix during 3rd trimester. IT'S VERY IMPORTANT TO LET YOUR OB KNOW IF YOU HAVE VAGINAL BLEEDING. ...Read more

If placenta is 3.4cm from os at 28w can the formation of lower segment and stretching of isthmus cause bleeding or is it high enough not to cause it?

If placenta is 3.4cm from os at 28w can the formation of lower segment and stretching of isthmus cause bleeding or is it high enough not to cause it?

Bleeding risk is low: The edge of your placenta is likely to remain away from the internal os of your cervix and possibly to "move up" as your pregnancy progresses. Therefore the possibility of placental site bleeding seems very low. ...Read more

Need expert advice. After my 32wk scan my midwife has written that my placenta is 'post high' in my notescan anyone tell me what this means?

Position: Evaluating the placenta location on an OB ultrasound is important to find the location and note whether it is approaching or covering the cervix and route the baby will exit the uterus on delivery. 'post high' likely is shorthand for posterior and high ie up by the top of the uterus away from the cervix, though you should confirm that with your doc. ...Read more

I had my baby at 32 weeks one year ago due to the placenta not getting enough nutrients. He was 2lbs. What are the chances of that happening again.

.: Depends on the reason why. If the reason for prematurity was genetic, you may need to speak to a geneticist to check chances of recurrence.
If it were because of infections or enviornmental issues (eg smoking/drugs), it shouldn't recur as far as you follow doctors advise. ...Read more

Talked about placentas and placenta smoothies in class. Developmental psy. I'm grossed out, but how much would one have to eat to get an effect?

One of jehovahs witnesses (no blood) 34 weeks and have partial placenta abr. Doctors are taking a wait and see approach, is this wise given the situation

One of jehovahs witnesses (no blood) 34 weeks and have partial placenta abr. Doctors are taking a wait and see approach, is this wise given the situation

Yes: The situation warrants close monitoring but in general ultrasound findings of partial abruption do not warrant delivery at 34wks. If you begin to bleed or show signs of fetal compromise that could change quickly. You are at increased risk for heavy sudden bleeding which carries additional risk being a jw and need to continue taking iron, vitamins, etc to minimize risks of anemia. ...Read more

I recently went to get an u/s at 38 weeks and they told me the baby is breech and that they see 2 placentas but only see one baby. What does it mean?

I recently went to get an u/s at 38 weeks and they told me the baby is breech and that they see 2 placentas but only see one baby. What does it mean?

Cesarean section?: Breech presentation at term is best managed with prelabor cesarean section unless your obstetrician thinks that an external cephalic version is likely to be successful, or your fetus decides to turn head down on its own. Paraplacenta is not very rare but carries risks for vasa previa (require cesarean section to avoid fetal exsanguination in labor) and postpartum hemorrhage from retained placenta. ...Read more

After d&c my dr said that the tissues remaining from the placenta might become tumor later and this depends on high pregnancy hormones, so what?

After d&c my dr said that the tissues remaining from the placenta might become tumor later and this depends on high pregnancy hormones, so what?

Pathologist: A pathologist will look at your tissue specimen under the microscope and will determine if you have this type of tumor (i hope not!). You should hear from your doctors' office within 5-7 days after your d;c about your report. If you haven't, then give office a call. A molar pregnancy is rare, so hopefully you don't have. If you do have, may need methrotrexate to treat and follow hormone to zero. ...Read more
