What causes a subchorionic hemorrhage? Started at 13 weeks and lost baby at 16 weeks. Passed large clots at 15 weeks & 10 hours before miscarriage
That can be difficul: To say. A placental abruption is what this is called when it happens later in pregnancy, usually due to trauma. Your loss is classified as a miscarriage though it did happen later than usual. The bleeding can be like a chain reaction, blood, cramping then more tearing away. There is a good chance u will be fine with the next pregnancy but review this with your doctor. There may not b a gd answ. ...Read more
Progesterone level 19(down from 31 at week 4) and 58000 h at 7 weeks of pregnancy. Yolk sac and fetal pole found on u/s, no heartbeat. Stilll viable?
Intrauterine low lying viable fetus at 8 weeks.172 bpm.can travel.can have intercourse. ..pls explain?
Puts you at risk: Honestly, a low lying fetus means there is a higher chance for developing placenta previa, where part or all of the placenta lies over the cervix. There is less blood supply in the lower part of the uterus and so miscarriage chance is a little higher, as is risk for growth restriction, preterm birth, and need for c-section. Avoid heavy lifting, sex until 2nd trimester, smoking, stress, traveling ...Read more
Not necessarily: Since the placenta cannot be directly examined, I am guessing that they are seeing an apparent collection of blood behind the placenta on ultrasound. These "subchorionic hematomas" are actually fairly common, are usually limited, and are not normally clinically significant. The chance of an evolving abruption is small but your history increases your risk. Monitor it and hopefully it is stable. ...Read more
Twin babies died at 18 weeks in the utero and found out at 21 week,were in the same sac,i only pass 1 placenta is it ok to get pregnant 4 mths after?
Probably: If your afi is < 5, yes. If it's borderline, between 5-8, it should be strongly considered unless your cervix is unfavorable (difficult to induce d/t being closed, thick, and/or firm). If they wait, you also need a normal non-stress test (nst) or biophysical profile (bpp). If your afi > 8, it's ok to wait. Discuss this with your OB & make sure you understand "kick counts" & when to go to l&d. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hcg level 4, 269 at 6 weeks 3 days. Progesterone 6.7- ultrasound yesterday- yolk sac, fetal pole, flickering heart. Is this on par for 6 weeks 3 days?
Diagnosed with partial/marginal placenta previa (25 wks). Precautions? Worried about preterm labor, placenta has not moved up since 17 wk scan.
Try to relax!: It's still fairly early to be worried. Most patients with marginal placentas deliver vaginally without incident. If this is your first pregnancy your lower uterine segment will not soften until fairly close to term so the placenta may appear to be low until fairly late. As long as there isn't significant vaginal bleeding you shouldn't worry. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If I have been diagnosed with placenta previa, at 3 months and miscarried a vanishing twin, will marijuana worsen the placenta previa?
Bled whole pregnancy. At 7w(lmp) measured 6 weeks with small gestational sac. At 8w (lmp) measured 6w6d with sac at 4.5 weeks. HR 154. Miscarriage?
Not necessarily: Hi, Without seeing the ultrasounds it is a little confusing. At the first U/S, what was measuring 6wk?> the sac or the fetus, if they saw one. The second U/S would actually be reassuring; they measured a fetus at 6w6d (the difference from LMP would just mean your dates are off), but a fetal heart rate of 154 is reassuring. The continued bleeding is worrisome, but keep the faith! Good luck ...Read more

26 weeks pregnant. What means: placenta anterior , site low lying ,presentation breech legs extended ? Thank you
Anterior placenta: Tis is describing where the baby's placenta is implanted on the wall of the uterus - yours is low lying, on the anterior, or belly button side of the uterus, and is in a breech position - head up, body down - that is ok at 26 weeks. The anterior low-lying placenta could be a problem with bleeding in labor, called placenta previa - please discuss with your OB for more information ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

11 wks preg, RA, fibroid 4.8cm, low lying placenta, baby very active at scan, will fibroid grow with pregnancy?
Bleeding whole pregnancy. At 7w I measured 6w and the gestational sac was small At 8 weeks 6w6d, the sac is 2 weeks behind. Heartbeat 154 Miscarriage?
Not necessarily: The sac is not 2 weeks behind, what you give is 1 week 1 day behind. This is 1 week's growth over 1 week. No one can say online whether your pregnancy is normal or not, but this looks likely normal to me if this was a spontaneous conception. The 154 heart rate is perfect. Stay calm and keep your upcoming visits, good luck. ...Read more
Had a low lying placenta @12.5weeks . I'm now 18 weeks measuring 21 with suprapubic pain. Could this be related to the placenta?
Possibly not likely : Placenta previous very common in early pregnancy. Overtime the placental typically grows and moves up and out-of-the-way. Unless it completely covers the opening of the cervical opening (os), is unlikely to cause any significant problems. Any bleeding however or significant cramping should cause you to check with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
