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 more

I am 26 weeks pregnant and have started having dull painsin the middle of my chest. I have a slight case of excerciseinduced asthma and placenta previa. Are there any precautions that I need to take?
Low placenta: An ultrasound diagnosis of a "low lying placenta" means that the edge of the placental location is near the cervical canal. If the placenta was covering the canal, it would be called a placenta previa, which would pose problems for delivery, and could cause bleeding with sexual activity. Sex should be OK with a low lying placenta. ...Read more

Follow advice of OB: A low-lying placenta will almost always move completely out-of-the-way by delivery time. As long as it's not "marginal", we usually wouldn't have a woman restrict her activity. But it's best to follow the specific advice of your OB about this. They are the ones who know you and your situation best and are responsible for assuring the health of you and your baby. ...Read more

Hi,14th week running for me. Today I went to scan. They mentioned — anterior low-lying placenta.is it problem to my unbron baby.please sugges?
Placental location: An anterior low-lying placenta is a possible cause of bleeding if running at this stage of pregnancy. It is unlikely to cause a serious problem for your baby, however. Usually the low-lying placenta will be located higher up as the uterus grows, and will not be a problem for delivery. Another sonogram in a month may show it to be in a more normal position. ...Read more
The embryo implants on the uterine lining, and at that location the placenta starts to grow. Usually, it is on a portion of the uterus that will stretch and thin during pregnancy, and is nowhere near the internal cervical opening.
However, sometimes the embryo implants very near the internal cervical opening, resulting in a low-lying placenta or even a placenta covering the opening, req. C-sec. ...Read more

I am 20 weeks and found out I have low-lying placenta. Is it ok to travel out of the country in 2 wks?
I have had some bleeding and have been told that the placenta is low-lying. Is the blood from me or the baby?
Probably maternal: Blood that comes out through the vagina in cases of a low placenta is typically from the mother. However, bleeding does need to be reported to an OB provider. If there are contractions and bleeding, even from a normally placed placenta, a woman should call the doctor and prepare to go to labor and delivery immediately. A test sometimes done there can tell if the blood is fetal or maternal. ...Read more

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.
